April Harvest of the Month: PEACHES!

Thanks to a heads-up from the Florida Department of Agriculture and some assistance from Localecopia, we were able to buy peaches from Farmer Jeff Sizemore of Sizemore Farms near Plant City.

It was interesting to learn about the development of peaches that will grow well in Florida (thanks University of Florida!)  from Jeff and about the farm his great-grandfather started in the early 1900s.

They were a great addition to the lunch line and a real hit with the students.
