It’s never too early to start thinking about peaches!
The Peach Truck, a traveling food truck that delivers farm-fresh peaches from Georgia, is back for another season of tour stops – and they’re coming to a number of locations near Pittsburgh this summer.
On their website, The Peach Truck shares that the business partners directly with hometown farms to “pick fresh produce at the perfect time, then get them into your hands within hours, not weeks.”
The idea for the business began in the summer of 2010 when Stephen Rose, a Georgia native, moved to Nashville and was dismayed to find that no one was selling fresh, flavorful peaches like the kind he’d grown up with in Georgia.
In the summer of 2012, Stephen and his wife Jessica bought a ‘64 Jeep truck and started selling fresh Georgia peaches from the cab. Within five weeks, the city had consumed over 10 tons of brown-bagged peaches. Today, the business offers mail-order peaches throughout the summer, pop-up locations in Nashville, and peach truck tours throughout the United States. The business also sells Georgia pecans, and jams, too.
In a note to customers, Rose writes that this year’s crop “looks incredible.”
Pre-orders for the tour are now available, and the tour will be making stops at 11 locations near Pittsburgh.
