Prior to 1981, many customers purchased their peaches from the Echols Family at the small peach shed on Old Cornelia Highway. However, in January of 1981, Jimmy and Valvoreth Echols moved their roadside stand business to another side of the farm. This became our Alto “market on a hill, and 37 years later, more than one million guests visit the Alto location annually to purchase fresh produce from our family’s farm.
A variety of fresh, homegrown produce and homemade goods are available at our Alto market including peaches, strawberries, apples, green beans, squash, pumpkins and fruit trees as well as numerous jams, jellies, soups, sauces, fried pies, homemade ice creams and more. We also have a Sandwich Shack at the farm that is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
We are open year-round, but please check for holiday hours. Gift cards are available for purchase.
Thank you for visiting with us! We are excited to have you at our roadside market and hope you’ll savor the taste of family tradition.
Pet Policy: Please note that no pets are allowed inside our Banks Crossing market due to food safety regulations. Return Policy: If at any time you were to purchase produce and upon slicing it open, it appeared and/or tasted bad or out of date, please let us know within 48 hours of purchase. We are happy to credit your future purchase upon your next return to the farm. We will not mail any reimbursements.
