After Stephen Rose moved to Nashville, Tenn. he quickly noticed the state was missing fresh fruit. Specifically, his beloved peaches. Rose grew up in Fort Valley, Georgia where peaches were plentiful, but more importantly always fresh. He and his wife, Jessica, decided to go back to his hometown and visit a local peach farm.
Realizing the rest of the world isn’t as a lucky to grow up with fresh fruit, he decided to partner with his hometown peach farm and bring the fruit back to Nashville.
In 2012, the couple bought a ’64 Jeep and started selling those fresh peaches right out of their cab in Nashville. Since the overwhelming success in Nashville, the two decided to spread the love around the Midwest with an annual summer tour. And shortly, it’ll be our turn!
You can find the peach truck Wednesday, July 10th and Thursday, July 11th. They’re selling ONLY 25-pound boxes of peaches for $42.
The box will be plenty have plenty to share with co-workers, family, and neighbors. You can also grab their brand new The Peach Truck Cookbook. The book has recipes for gorgeous salads, genius entrees, and mouth-watering desserts (of course!)
