Peach Picking in Chickasaw Country

14 miles northwest of Ada, on State Highway 3W, sits an unassuming roadside stand with all the fresh fruits and vegetables you’ll want this summer. Peach Tree Farms was established in 1989 as a family farm to Tim and Christy Blackburn, and 30 years later, it continues to be rooted in family values. Some of their favorite memories are from raising their children on the farm. 

Farm-fresh peaches, nectarines, plums, blackberries, cantaloupes, watermelon and other fresh vegetables are available – take your pick! Locally made jams, jellies, pickles and honey are always a hit as well. In the summertime, one of the most popular items is their homemade ice cream! The delicious ice cream is made fresh every day and served with a side of peaches. Try a scoop, a milkshake, or on alongside a homemade fried pie! 

A few things to know about the fruit and vegetable stand: 

  1. The farm is open from the first of June through the last week of October, Monday –Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. That makes Peach Tree Farms a great place to find pumpkins and all the other seasonal goodies you love. 
  2. You can find Peach Tree Farms at the Norman Farmers Market on Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you can’t make it to the farm, this is a great way to get a taste of Chickasaw Country!
  3. Baskets and plastic bags are provided to hold your goodies. We suggest bringing a small ice chest to keep the fruits and vegetables fresh in the Oklahoma heat during the drive home. 
  4. Take pictures! The antique blue, red and green chairs under the Peach Tree sign is a great place to take a picture of your little ones munching on a peach or enjoying their ice cream.  

After you visit the farm, Tim and Christy suggested visiting Ada and grabbing a bite to eat at the Prairie Kitchen or Blue Moon Café. They also said Wintersmith Park is a great place to explore!
