The Peach Farmers is a unique glimpse into the history of the original Georgia peach. Learn about one of the most important agricultural products of the South from the farmers who toiled to create an American tradition. Grown for thousands of years in China, peaches were not sold commercially in the United States until the mid 1870s. Listen to stories told by Georgia's peach farmers, some of who are direct descendants of those who grew the very first "Elberta" peach. The Peach Farmers documentary is a great teaching tool demonstrating the tremendous hand labor required of the peach industry and the human relationships that have made it work.
