North Carolina Peaches
Don’t you love that fresh picked peach that has juice just dripping to your elbow?! Moore County grows some of the best peaches. My favorite is Auman Orchards and you will find them just minutes from Pinehurst.
They are located at 3140 Highway 73 in West End. Simply pull down their driveway right by the house and pull into the pole barn. Family is there to wait on you, explain the different peaches and make sure you get the best! They even stack the bags with ripest at the top to ones that might wait a day or two below.
I don’t think there is anything better than the perfect peach on a beautiful summer day. It seems my best peach is always the first out of the bag and I eat it the minute I’m in the car at Auman Orchards. If you are lucky enough to get them all home they also make great jam!
Give them a try and be sure to bring some napkins!
