sunny update ... it appears the Yellow Fleshed Flat "Donut" peaches made
it through the final step of maturity very well ... even after the heavy
rains a few weeks ago. We will have them available starting tomorrow
(Sunday July 26th). They are always only available for a short time ...
so feel free to call us at 856.451.0022 before making a special trip
And a cloudy post ... it appears the White Fleshed Donuts
didn't fare as well with the weather, so we don't anticipate harvesting
them this season.
The White Fleshed Peaches are now available starting this weekend (July 25th), and will harvest for the next 10 days or so ... We also have Yellow Fleshed Peaches and Nectarines.
Our hours are 8 am to 6 pm daily.
Feel free to call to find out our daily offerings - 856-451-0022
Welcome to the Sunny Slope Orchards website!
Here at Sunny Slope, we are a family-owned business in Bridgeton, New Jersey (Hopewell Township / Cumberland County) that has grown from 20 to over 800 acres in 80 plus years. We grow peaches and nectarines that are mainly shipped commercially, but we also have a small retail market at the entrance of the farm's packing house where the peaches and nectarines are sold. Apples are grown as well and sold at the farm's market, along with our custom-blended cider.
Now that Summer is finally here, another peach and nectarine season is just days a way. The Spring weather was very good for the development of the fruit. The cold winter did delay the season a bit, so our peaches apologize for missing your 4th of July festivities, but promise to be part of your plans for the rest of the summer!
There are a few photos on the Photo Gallery page of the peach trees in bloom from back in April. It's always the prettiest time of year around the orchard, but unfortunately, only lasts a few days. In a couple of photos, you may see a bee or two doing their job on the farm. We hope to add a few more photos as this season progresses.
A big thanks goes to everyone involved here: Tony (who thankfully, didn't retire yet), Ron, Reyes, Rita, Roy, all the great kids who helped out in the packing house last summer and fall, Artemio and the field crew.
Thank you to our customers. We hope you will again choose to enjoy some of our peaches this year, whether from our own retail stand, your local supermarket, or from the local farm markets who offer our peaches along with other great Jersey Fresh produce. We truly appreciate your patronage.
Hopefully, with help from Mother Nature to provide favorable growing conditions through the rest of the Summer, we look forward to having sweet peaches and nectarines coming in mid July. We will keep you posted on how things are going out in the orchards.
Thank you for stopping by our website.
In Loving Memory...Alfred Caggiano Sr. 1929 - 2012
