The Roots of Our Orchard

by Peachy Page Farm on 08/03/18

PEACHY PAGE FARM

OUR ROOTS GROW DEEP IN THE TEXAS SOIL!

 

Peachy Page Farm owners, Robert and Cindy Page are Texans to the core. Both are fourth generation Texans, a mere fact they are both very proud of!

Robert and Cindy are parents of two children, Kelly Page Stibbens and Michael Page. Three amazing grandsons: Nathan Stibbens, Caden Page and Jaron Page along with a daughter -in-law, Jennifer Page and son-in-law Bryan Stibbens make their family complete. All of these family members live in the great state of Texas.

Robert and Cindy raised children in Forney, TX and when Michael left for college in 1997 they headed to Scurry where they had been gifted a small piece of land from Robert’s dad, Wiley Page.  It was a cold January morning in 2007 when Robert and Cindy planted their first peach trees – four varieties of 250 free stone peaches. Later that year, blackberries were planted. 

Today Peachy Page Farm features seven varieties of peaches from about 550 trees, 24 plum trees and 2000 ft of blackberries. Along with peaches, plums and blackberries customers can purchase homemade churned ice-cream, jams and seasonal vegetables.  Selling their fruit began from under a canopy beside the house. Today customers can purchase their fruit and other small gift items from inside their newly built country store which was built by Robert and completed in 2018.

Also offered are Dinners In The Orchard in the fall and spring of each year. This fun night consists of appetizers on the porch area and then as the night becomes available the guest move out into the orchard for a four-course dinner and piano music. These are magical nights of laughter, meeting new and old friends, service which is “5” star and food that will satisfy any taste bud! The orchard can also be rented September – May for weddings, family reunions, engagement parties or any gathering.

The main focus is for customers to come to the orchard not only to buy fresh fruit but to see our piece of paradise. The Page’s are very proud of the orchard and love to share it with others. They are lifelong learners and learn something new every season. The orchard is always such a beautiful place, peaceful and gracious in the early morning and late afternoons!

The orchard began as a way to support retirement for the couple. Cindy retired from 45 years in education in January 2018 and Robert has semi-retired from 50 years of selling lumber this month (July 2018).  

This labor intense operation is a dream come true for Robert and Cindy, one they love to share with others. They harvest their own peaches with help from local employees and offer “pick your own” blackberries and plums.

We hope you will enjoy your visit at Peachy Page Farm and walk away feeling the love and devotion that happens each and every day at the orchard!

 

Art in the Orchard

by Peachy Page Farm on 06/29/18

On July 7th, we would like to invite you to join us in the orchard for 20 Pieces of Peaches.  

20 Pieces of Peaches is a collection of paintings by Greg Doster.  He has made this very special collection of art to tell the story of the Peachy Page Farm.  There are 20 of Greg's original paintings that will be displayed throughout the orchard.
20 Pieces of Peaches by Greg Doster
Greg's muse behind the art he creates is a story  told by the subject at hand.  Greg listens first, then he paints.  Using watercolors, oil, acrylic and photography, Greg is able to capture a tale told, and a moment in time.  Greg explains his art like this, "My work can best be described as creating landscapes with a memory within a story."
We are looking forward to seeing the 20 Pieces of Peaches collection revealed.  Please join us for a wine tasting, by our friends at the Screen Door Cellars, and the unique artwork that will be set up throughout the orchard.  This event will take place at Peachy Page Farm, on July 7th, from 4PM to 8PM.   

Need a perfect night out?

by Peachy Page Farm on 03/26/18

Who couldn't use a night out?  Maybe you want a fun girls night or a romantic date night.  Dinner in the Orchard at Peachy Page Farm is what you have been looking for.


The evening begins up on the patio, surrounded by beautiful flowers and greenery.  You will enjoy mingling and unique appetizers.  Cheese and charcuterie tray with our famous peach with jalapeño jelly bruschetta and raspberry honey mustard pretzel dip are just a few of the delicious morsels that line two tables.  We will uncork your wine, while you enjoy your companions company and get to know the other guests.

Once you have had time to quench your hunger with  appetizers, we will bring you down into the peach orchard to the dining table.  Lovely white flowers adorn the trees around you and the smells of fresh fruit coming into bloom enhance your dinning experience.

Soup and salad are next on the menu.  This is where you start to really bring your taste-buds to life.  We might serve a roasted carrot salad with avocado and citrus vinaigrette, our secret family recipe for corn chowder.  You will have to come and find out what the chief has brought to dazzle you for the evening.

The main course, what we have all been waiting for right?  Our chief combines the flavors of the orchard with perfectly aged meat.  Fresh vegetables and a baked potato full your plate by a peach glazed pork loin.  You might prefer salmon with a decedent sauce?  We aim to please, so let us know what you would most enjoy.

The meal will conclude with a homemade dessert, maybe peach cobbler fresh from the oven and a scoop of our very own homemade vanilla ice cream.  Coffee and tea will be served.  You can relax and laugh with friends around the fire to finish out the evening.

Your hosts, Cindy and Robert, are looking forward to serving you dinner in the orchard at Peachy Page Farm.  Check the calendar or our facebook page for the dates of our next dinner.

Welcome to the farm

by Peachy Page Farm on 03/15/18

There is a lot happening down on the farm this year.  We have our grand opening of the new store, added classes and events to the calendar, and you'll find us ready with a fresh crop of delicious eats come spring.  


Cindy retired from her position at Greenhill School, this December, to focus full time on the orchard.  While she will miss the kids and her fellow educators, it is time to slow things down and enjoy life a little.  At least, that was the plan.  When you speak with Cindy now you will find she is busier than ever before. 


Peachy Page Farm has just finished building a brand new country store on the premises.  The store is equipped with a commercial kitchen for cooking classes and Dinner in the Orchard events.  The front of the store is adorned with classic, down on the farm decor.  You will find unique gifts, along with Peachy Page homemade jellies, ice cream, fresh baked goods and home grown, seasonal produce.

Everyone needs to check out our calendar, where you will be kept up to date on classes, events and the next dinners being hosted at Peachy Page Farm.

Another exciting addition to our offerings is the venue.  Peachy Page Farm will be the perfect setting for your next event.  It is our great pleasure to invite you to say your vows in the orchard or plan a family reunion or company retreat with us.  

Reach out and let us know when we will see you again!
