About

The orchards have been in the McLeod family since 1916. Today, Kemp McLeod represents the fourth generation to work the family orchards. He learned the operation from his father, Campbell McLeod.

It takes about 30 employees to run the farm year-round. However, during the harvest season, from the end of May to the end of August, the numbers swell to over 200. Workers can be found picking, grading, packing, and shipping millions of pounds of peaches to all parts of the U.S. and Canada. At the height of the season, a 15-hour workday is not unusual.

Here at McLeod Farms, peaches are picked every day. Once picked, the fruit is sent through an ice-cold water bath to slow the ripening process. After being sealed with an ultra-light wax coating that closes the pores of the peaches to keep them fresh, they are then sorted by size, shape, and/or color. All of our peaches are hand-graded and selected for shipment.
