The Peach Truck Tour is operated by Stephen and Jessica Rose, who travel around sharing their love of Stephen’s favorite childhood fruit.
Stephen grew up in Fort Valley, Georgia where he spent summers at a peach farm. After moving to Nashville, he noticed the peaches at the supermarket didn’t taste anything like what he knew a peach to taste like.
“I made a disheartening discovery many before me already had: in just one state away, I couldn’t find fresh, flavorful peaches like the kind I’d grown up with,” Stephen posted in his online story. “What I found instead was a poorly handled, less juicy, and bland imposter. Even worse, no one around me seemed to know what they were missing.”
After taking his wife, Jessica, back to his hometown peach farm, they said they confirmed that Nashville had a peach problem and that they may have a solution.
The couple began selling fresh Georgia peaches out of their 1964 Jeep Gladiator and within five weeks had sold more than 10 tons. From there, The Peach Truck Tour was born.
During the summer, the couple travels through various states with their famous Peach Truck giving people a taste of what they are missing.
Now it’s Leesburg’s turn.
