QUEST FOR THE
BEST TASTING PEACH

It was a "peachy day" at the
Farmers Market Peach Festival,
where shoppers and neighbors
voted for the "best tasting peach."

Local orchards put their
freshest, juiciest, ripest peaches
to the test . . .
and competed for top honors
and most votes for this season's
"best tasting peach."

As always, it's the southern Illinois orchards
who are famous for "best tasting peaches" nationwide.
Contestants included Odelehr Farms (Summit Produce),
Eckert's Orchards (CJ's Produce), Sager Farms and Baalman Produce.

Visitors stood in line for their turn
to sample fresh cut peaches from local orchards,
and vote for "best tasting peach."

Children had no problem tasting and deciding
on this year's best peach . . .
from Odelehr Farms in Brussels, Illinois.
