You’ll notice that the roads near Lakeview Orchard in Rockport, Indiana are tree-lined, but it’s not the typical oak, walnut, or maple!
Instead, you’ll see plenty of peaches surrounding this Spencer County orchard.
Lakeview Orchard in Rockport, Indiana
Apparently Georgia is not the only place known for peaches! This Indiana orchard is loaded with them–and almost 30 different varieties. Who knew there were so many kinds of peaches?!?
Peaches for canning or freezing and peaches for eating, there’s a lot here to love!
With somewhere around 100 acres of peaches (and a couple dozen acres for apples), you can only imagine how good it smells inside of the Lakeview Orchards market.
Beginning in the early 60’s, Lakeview Orchard has kept the area supplied in fresh local produce and even canned items.
Although they do carry mostly peaches, there’s a slew of other locally supplies fruits and veggies available!
You’ll see Mount Zion United Methodist Church canned products like strawberry, blackberry, pineapple jams and jellies and even apple butter. You know those church ladies can cook!
The tables are piled with peaches (of course), apples, and maybe also tomatoes, corn, berries, and squash (to name a few).
Take a look at the neat old fashioned apple press. That sure looks like a lot of work.
As always, please call ahead before heading out. But make sure that you do eventually head out. This is a gorgeous area–and it’s not every day you see a peach orchard in Indiana!
