Peach Ice Cream Day

Peach Ice Cream Day (Customer Appreciation Day)
August 2, 2014
10am-4pm

There’s a good reason the official Delaware state flower is the peach blossom and the official state dessert is the peach pie.  Peaches in Delaware have a proud history.  In the mid 1800′s Delaware was the top peach producing state!  During this era, the peach canning industry was vital to the central Delaware economy. Fifer Orchards is proud to continue the legacy of harvesting fresh Delaware peaches.

You’ll find Americana at it’s finest at Fifer’s Peach Ice Cream Day.
(Note: The Town of Wyoming hosts their Peach Festival on the same day, however, these are two separate events)
