Summer means fresh peaches

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Long, hot summer days usually leave us craving for something refreshing, and to satisfy those cravings, Mathis Peaches and Produce in north Clarke County has something for everyone.

For more than 30 years, the Mathis family has been producing peaches in Clarke County on their forty acres and for the past eleven years, their store off Highway 45 South, has been making their customers happy with the selection of their peaches and other fresh produce.

"Peaches, tomatoes, watermelons and shelled peas and butter beans are the biggest sellers,” said Lisa Smith.  She and her brother, Randy Mathis, run the business on Highway 45 South and HWY 19 North.  The extreme cold snaps this past winter and the lack of rain hasn't stopped their peaches from growing strong.  Smith said they sell over 75 bushels of peaches a day and they can't keep up with the demand for shelled peas and butter beans.  The peas and butter beans come from Georgia, but are shelled at the HWY 45 South location.

Along with peaches, tomatoes and watermelons — they also have a huge selection of other fruits and vegetables.

And, they even sell their homemade canned goods in a wide variety of flavors.

Not everyone has a green thumb or the acreage to grow a garden or fruit orchard, but after a short drive to Mathis Peaches and Produce — you can enjoy the refreshing tastes of summer.  They are open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at both locations.
