Oh man I love to take a bite of the first ripe peach in the area right off the tree; especially when I know it's been organically grown. There are no pesticides or anything on this. Especially when I know I can pick these myself and get a kind of a break on the price or at least ask the farmer, and he'll even pick them for you and still give you a break on the price.
We are down at Kenneth Hoffman's in Poteet, and I'm going to give you instructions on how to get there in a few minutes, but I just want to show you that these trees are breaking down and every peach on them is ripe. So it doesn't take a genius to figure out how to pick peaches in this orchard. The reason they're breaking down is there are too many on the tree.
So you can help this farmer and help these poor trees and get you some fresh peaches by simply going to Poteet on Highway 16, taking a right on 476, right there next to the strawberry tank, going out there to the second left, take 1333 and go about a 1 9/10 to 2 miles and turn right into the Kenneth Hoffman's place. You will get some of the best peaches you've ever laid your lips on. Make jelly, preserves, and jams, and I get 10% of everything you make. Just bring it on down here to Kens-TV.
