Nestled among the rolling hills
northwest of Ruston, in the heart of
Mitcham's Peach Orchard, lies a quaint
country store filled with many wonderful
food items, gift baskets & local artists'
In 1999, Joe Mitcham, with the help
of two local processing companies, began
producing products made from Mitcham peaches
as a way to utilize overripe and
hail-damaged peaches. These products
were originally sold at the processing shed
during the summer, but Joe soon realized the
need for a a separate outlet for these and
future products. Thus the rustic
wooden building was constructed adjacent to
the peach shed and opened to the public.
Other companies' products were researched
and sampled, and the store broadened its
inventory to include a wide range of gourmet
food items. In an effort to please a
variety of shoppers and to help local
artisans, the store has also become a
gallery housing local arts and crafts, which
are sold on consignment.
There are a wide variety of items for
sale at The Peach Store including
hand-made bath and products, candles, and
peach-themed items, all of which can be
arranged in gift baskets.
Pre-made gift baskets and gift boxes are
available for sale, and custom gifts can be
made using products that the customer
chooses. The Peach Store sends gift
boxes throughout the United States for
holidays and other special occasions, and
would be happy to send a part of Ruston to
your friends and family. Individual
and corporate orders are welcome, and can be
placed by calling or emailing the store, or
by purchasing online.
