Ham's Peach Orchard

.... and they don't sell hams.  Well, they do have a great pulled pork sandwich!
Dallas metroplex folks have you been here? MissLynley heard about it two summers ago and we have had it on our radar and finally found a Saturday to drive out.
Took us less than an hour from Coppell.  Website link is at the end of this post.
 Take 635 or I20 to Highway 80 East and drive till you see the building above on your right.  We got there at 9:40 and by the time we left the parking lot was 3/4th full.  It was getting really crowded in the tiny store.
 This is the entire store.  My back is to the ice cream check out.  Three rows full of great pies, jellies, dip fixings, pickled everything and peach ice cream!

 The tiny double decker buggies are great in this small space.  We got lucky to get there early enough to snag one.  They have hand held baskets a plenty, but peaches are heavy y'all!
 Texas grown Glads for sale too.

 We grabbed a peach pulled pork sandwich to share on the ride home!  Yum!
Go before they close for the summer.

Ham Orchard... go for the peaches for sure, and the other stuff!
It took three days for these peaches to ripen to perfection.  They are perfect with the summery napkins I am using! 



  1. Wow, Lori, I always forget about this place. We would always stock up at Mitchum's in Ruston. Guess I need to make a stop on the way home!

    1. Yes, Ruston peaches are great too! The peaches we bought on Saturday are perfectly ripe today!!! Wish I had bought more.

  2. I love Hams! Did you try the ice cream? Oh. My. Goodness! I'm actually headed that way on Thursday. We had a student teacher who used to work there this past year and he told me the key is to go in July, the peaches are the best at that time of year. So, good timing!!

    1. We bought the ice cream first and ate while we shopped. I brought freezer bags to bring some home too. I have a peach cobbler in the freezer, I am saving that for when everything else is eaten and gone. We haven't tried the peach salsa, peach butter or the balsamic glaze for cream cheese yet! Corn dip almost a gonner. We did go a little crazy for our first visit.

  3. I love little markets like this! Such a treat to browse and look at it all, and everything is always so delicious!
