Peaches are in at Meadow Ledge Farm in Loudon. Owner Shawn Roberts picked 1,000 pounds of tree-ripe peaches on the farm over the last couple days after an “incredible harvest” this year. Backed by a temperate winter, Roberts said his farm even produced a full pound peach that he is now keeping in a refrigerator at the farm store. Besides acres and acres of apples, the farm has over two acres of peach trees. Roberts says pumpkins are getting ready as well.
