Our Story

Hello! We’re Keith and Samantha, and we’re so glad you are here. Our orchard started out of a need for peach blossoms. My wife Samantha owns Two Little Monkeys Photography and has offered photo sessions for several years in South Carolina’s iconic peach trees, but those orchards have recently changed their policies on allowing the public to be among the trees. Her desire to keep offering these sessions to her clients, hand in hand with my background in horticulture, we decided to start Monroe’s first known peach orchard. Along with the blooms she desires, there will be plenty of peaches. After all, each bloom will be a peach!

We are excited to share our delicious peaches with our local community. Thank you for stopping by – we hope to see you soon!

Peach season will be here soon!

We are currently closed and will reopen for the 2024 season once peaches are ready! Check our Peach Stand Status Page as well as our social media accounts for updates.
