This is a first of what we hope will be more visits in the future to local farms during our RV travels. Today’s visit was to Dickey Farms located in Musella, GA. Dickey Farms is a short drive from the campground at Lake Tobesofkee in Macon. What we found was a family operated business offering big smiles, a friendly southern atmosphere, and all of the fresh vegetables and fruit, gourmet gifts, and my favorite great peach and strawberry ice cream.
Dickey Farms has grown peaches for over 120 years. The Dickey family continues to operate the farm providing a wide variety of peaches, strawberries, and pecans shipping to grocery stores and online. But for Joan and I, the treat was the pretty drive through the country side and arriving at the open air packing shed build in 1936, meeting the fine folks, and sampling some of the fresh fruit picked from the fields that day.
Joan and I enjoyed walking around the packing shed looking all the antiques, canned goods, and most of all, a large cup of Dickey Farms’ incredible peach and strawberry ice cream. Near the end of the packing shed, we found comfortable rocking chairs and took a few minutes to enjoy this cool April day with views of the old general store and Baptist church across the street, reflecting on a time that wasn’t so busy and life wasn’t so complicated.
You have to appreciate one’s love of the land, the skill in farming a product for over 120 years, and this family of growers who from generation to generator produce peaches enjoyed all over the world.
