Peoria County Farm Bureau News

  •      It is that time again! Members can place orders for Illinois grown peaches which will be available for pickup at the Farm Bureau building in Peoria on Thursday, August 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  The peaches are available in 25 pound boxes for Farm Bureau members.  The cost is $25 per 25 pound box.  Click Here to download the order form. The order deadline is Thursday, August 14.

         This year’s peaches will be from Southern Illinois. These peaches should be tree-ripened.  This will mean a juicy, sweet peach.  It will also mean that the peaches will be more perishable and that timely pickup will be very important.  Once again the pickup will be on Thursday, August 21.  Please write this day on your calendar and be sure to have someone pick them up that day.
