Compared to fruits from far-off places, fruits picked nearby are fresher, riper, and have an easier time acclimating to your kitchen's imposed legal drinking age. Mitigate culinary culture shock with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get admission for four to the annual Peach Festival at Triple B Farms in Monongahela on August 13–14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (up to a $20 value, including tax). This Groupon is good for admission only.
The fruit experts at Triple B Farms invite Pittsburgh-area crop gatherers to fill farm-supplied baskets with fresh-grown seasonal fruits and enjoy a plethora of family-friendly games and activities. After arriving at the Peach Festival and donning the stylish all-day-access wristband, guests are free to explore the cornucopia of peach concoctions, desserts, and smoothies, taking down ideas for recipes and pointers for knitting peach fuzz into sweaters. Triple B’s peaches enter the sweet spot of the harvest season around mid-July, and usually remain plump and juicy through mid-September, placing the festival at the apex of picking time for both traditional yellow and small white peaches ($1.69/lb. for fresh-picked peaches, not included with today's Groupon). The delicious fruit’s devotees turn out en masse every year for the annual festival, which is a celebration of all things peach, including an all-ages obstacle course and a question-and-answer session with famous peaches. Triple B Farms’ Peach Festival also entertains children with a playground, farm animals, giant slides, and a rope maze, freeing parents to peruse the farm's expansive selection of fresh-grown produce, baked goods, jams, and rustic lifestyle guides.
