Peaches in Leachville
Peach harvest at Swihart Orchards in Leachville is nearing the end of the 2012 peach season. Peaches should be available for about two more weeks with over 20 varieties. Owner Leon Swihart said the best time to get peaches is in the mornings.

Pictured with Swihart (left) are Linda and Nicky Miller of Newport. The Millers have come to Swihart Orchards for peaches every year for about 30 years. Linda's mother-in-law, Eva Miller, started the family tradition.
