Sweet Roads to Sweet Peaches

In July, our Porsche club monthly Drive & Dine takes us on the back roads of North and South Carolina to a Peach Farm where we can enjoy freshly picked peaches, homemade farm fresh ice cream and lunch together at Strawberry Hill USA in Chesnee, SC.

When you bite into a fresh South Carolina peach, and you will know what summer tastes like!.

Strawberry Hill USA harvests from over 800 acres of peach trees every season, growing nearly 30 different varieties. Our drive will take us through some of the nicest WNC back roads through Hickory Nut Gap, Black Mountain Lake Laure and the Green River Valley to reach Strawberry Hill USA.

When we arrive at the peach farm, you have options: lunch will be available for purchase at a their cafeteria (https://strawberryhillusa.com) or a picnic meal can be enjoyed with friends (bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets!).

After lunch, you can purchase baskets of fresh peaches (and other local vegetables) and for a lucky few, purchase quarts of their homemade peach and strawberry ice cream to enjoy later at home (bring a small cooler!).
