Company description

Peach House Farm is a certified naturally grown cut flower farm “start-up” with 40 total acres (20 of which are plantable with previous crops of corn, tomatoes, soybeans and strawberries as recently as 2019). We are working to build an organic and fully sustainable farm that will also include fruits and vegetables and eventually a commercial kitchen and distillery.

Peach House Farm’s 40 acres are maintained by farmer Stephen Dobek.
