National Peach Month History

Athena Farms is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, which is nicknamed “The Peach State.” The history of this nickname dates back to the Civil War when soldiers from various states would pick peaches from the trees around the battlefields. The soldiers were impressed with the peach’s sweetness and juiciness, so the nickname came to be.

Now, you don’t need to go out to the battlefields to pick peaches. Instead, you can order them straight from Athena Farms. Athena Farms offers locally grown peaches with superior nutrients that are great for making peach cobbler, peach salads, peach parfaits, and more.
