Where the Peaches are Sweet and the Ice Cream is Sweeter
We started visiting Dickey’s Farms about 5 years ago, our initial thought was that it was a peach u-pick farm, but it isn’t. Although it is not a u-pick farm, the atmosphere here makes you not miss the labor of actually picking the peaches. You can tell Dickey’s Farms wanted to create a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere for their patrons. The farmhouse style décor makes this unique roadway stop-through shop pleasantly inviting. The old fashioned furnishings and design scheme take you back to a time when things moved slowly and life was good. The rocking chairs spread throughout the establishment for you to sit just add a little bit more pizzazz to your relaxation.
When you walk up you are instantaneously hit with the sweet aroma of freshly picked peaches. During the season Dickey’s offers peach samples for you to try…and I do suggest trying them because they are so good. You can buy them by the ½ peck or full peck. I would suggest buying a full peck if you plan to eat, freeze and bake a good bit. If you only want a few to nibble on, you can also buy them by the pound .
The ice cream here is absolutely amazing! The ice cream is what drove our little group to keep coming back year after year. You can purchase their ice cream by the cone, cup or prepacked. They only have two flavors, peach and strawberry… please trust they have perfected the recipe. My personal favorite is their peach ice cream. Their ice cream is so rich and creamy and you can actually see the multitude of peach pulp flecks throughout. The peach flavor is so intense that it taste as if you are biting into an actual peach. On a warm day, sitting in a rocking chair with the fans blowing on you, eating an ice cream cone just seems like the epitome of an awesome summer afternoon.
Not only will you want to take home peaches by the dozen, or some pints of ice cream from this charming establishment, but Dickey’s Farms also offers a wide variety of other take home items. It’s only right that a peach driven business would have peach inspired items like jams, marmalade’s, salsas, chutney’s, hot sauces, jelly beans, candy peach rings, dried peaches and so much more. Although most people come for their farm fresh peaches you can also find fresh vegetables like okra, tomatoes, corn and potatoes here as well.
Dickey’s Farms is located in Musella, Georgia. If you are planning a trip to their lovely establishment please visit their website www.gapeaches.com. Peach season usually starts around June 1st and ends around the end of August.
