[BEST] Peach Orchards in Arkansas that will make you sticky

I love to pick peaches. There’s nothing like eating as many peaches as you can with one hand and trying to pick with the other. In the end you have a wagon full of beautiful, sticky Arkansas peaches.

Now, you don’t have to be like me. Normal people probably do something responsible like pick a basket or two of peaches then sit down to enjoy a nice piece of ripe fruit when they are finished. I’m sure people like this also bring some sort of towelette in a little package in their pocket so they can wipe the juice off their hands and face.

Not me, y’all.

I will be that person who pulls my wagon of fresh peaches to the check-out hut with sticky hands. I’m not ashamed.

Life is short. Eat more peaches.

Anyway, if you want to be adventurous, pick your own peaches and eat your breakfast while you pick, while visiting some of the BEST peach orchards in Arkansas.

P.S. Some of the orchards listed here are not “u-pick.” Instead they are “u-pick-up” and that’s just as exciting! That means you can go to the farm, get your pre-picked peaches, and eat them on the car ride home!

If you get home and your seat belt is sticky, you know you had a great trip.

*As an expert driver, I would never suggest that you drive and eat. Leave the eating to the passengers.
