There is something about Ontario Freestone Peaches that really captivates me, and they are in season at Harvest Barn Country Markets!
Freestone peaches are best for canning because the flesh of each peach comes away from the pit easily, leaving the rest of the peach intact, so they look beautiful in the canning jars, and they don’t get all mushy during preparation for preserving.

Not only are these peaches grown in Ontario but they come from down the street from our local Harvest Barn Country Market, from Hunter Farms in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
When I was growing up, my grandparents had a farm in Niagara-on-the-Lake and peach season meant that we could have our fill of peaches every day, and my grandmother created all kinds of fabulous dishes using peaches. I think Niagara-grown peaches are the very best! The climate conditions, moist air from Lake Ontario and the particular soil are all conducive to growing high quality peaches.
These beauties come from Harvest Barn Country Markets in Niagara-on-the-Lake – one of their two locations, with the other location being in St. Catharines in Southern Ontario.
Another plus for Harvest Barn Country Markets is that they bring in their produce, as much as possible, from within a 100 mile radius of their two locations. In this way, local farmers are supported, produce isn’t damaged and bruised as much as it can be when being transported across country for excessively long distances (or imported).
When Harvest Barn Country Markets offer that produce to its’ customers, it is fresh, nutrition is still high, it is optimally ripe, less blemished and ready for your family to enjoy these high quality, delicious fruits and vegetables.
Stop in at Harvest Barn Country Markets and see for yourself what great products they have to offer, and take something wonderful home to serve at your family table.
