Reports from Sunday’s peach-picking event (and Hungarian Valley lunch) have been that all who attended had a great time meeting other Slow Food members, learning about Yingst Ranch, and picking peaches at the peak of ripeness.
Members Karen and Curt Gibbs have shared with us a link to their event photos on Flickr, and serve as an inspiration to all of us who enjoy this kind of event: Karen has already turned the peaches and plums they picked into jam and pie!
For those who could not attend but may wish to venture to Yingst or other U-pick farms on their own, Angie Mason, the coordinator of the event, noted that among the peaches, Red Tops were peaking, and it looked like Alberta, Rio Osos, and white peaches will be ready in about a week, continuing into September.
Yingst Ranch is located at 35349 80th Street East in Littlerock, California. They are closed Mondays, but open during the season from 8:00am until 5:00pm. For questions or to confirm availability, you may contact them at 661.944.2425.
