Summer is here! What better way to celebrate it than with some of the freshest fruits and vegetables around Fort Valley, Georgia? At Lane Southern Orchards, we have a host of family-friendly events this June through August to bring joy to the community. Get outside and enjoy all the sunshine with our summer lineup, including:

Peaches — This Season's Sweetest Fruit

If you love peaches, we've got good news. Peach season has officially begun, and we are beyond excited to share this juicy, sweet harvest with you. Peaches are a Southern staple that we've cultivated in our 5,000 acres of orchards for over 100 years. Now you can try this American pitted staple fresh from our store, located right in Peach County.

Our peach salsa is a customer favorite, but don't forget our peach barbeque sauce or jarred peaches. We also have great mixes that will please anyone who loves the taste of this fruit in their baked goods. Take a look at some of our favorite recipes for inspiration on how to incorporate your favorite summer ingredients into your baking.

Fourth of July Celebration 

With the Fourth of July on the horizon, we're planning our annual celebration at the farm. What better way to celebrate this patriotic occasion than to get together with the family and friends you love most? We'll be grilling up some food, playing games and having fun! There's something for everyone at this party, from music to face painting.

Every year, we host a day of fun at the farm. Whether you want to jump around in a bounce house, get your face painted or play on the playground, we've got you covered. Come on out — we can't wait to see you there! Check out the event page for more information on the Fourth of July events near Fort Valley, Georgia.

Summer Farm Play Days 

A day at the farm isn't complete without a stop at the market and playground. 

When you visit us, you can shop for fresh produce and peaches, head over to our farm-themed playground and have fun. We have plenty of activities for kids, including a slide, swings and tractor-themed spring riders. When the kids are done playing, you can come inside, where our staff will be waiting with ice cream and milkshakes made from our own Georgia peaches. These sweet treats are the perfect way to end your day!

Shop the Farm and Market

Lane Southern Orchards is more than just a farm. It's a place to get away from it all, relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Our shop carries various pies, made-from-scratch bread and a wide selection of gourmet candy. We also have jams, jellies, preserves, syrups and butters.

Whether you need a quick bite to eat or desire the time to relax and unwind over a meal, Peachtree Cafe and Bakery will have something for everyone. This one-stop shop will satisfy all your soul food cravings by serving classic southern dishes like cobber and pie, as well as club sandwiches and our famous chicken salad sandwich. So come on in and make yourself at home. We'll take care of the rest.
