Dickey Farms has been growing peaches in the heartland of Georgia for over 125 years. Our growers are part of a multi-generational legacy with experience being handed down from one generation to the next.
We’re proud to be home to Georgia’s oldest, continuously operating peach packinghouse. In 1936, Robert L. “Mr. Bob” Dickey built the packinghouse with lumber hewn off his own land. Today, the long white building is a prominent landmark in historic Musella, Georgia. At the time of construction, the packinghouse was ideally located near rail lines for better transportation to the peach-hungry North.
“Mr. Bob” was an early pioneer of “multitasking”, being a postmaster, undertaker, depot agent and general store manager. Today, the general store is still located across the packinghouse. However, his heart was in the peach industry, and we are reaping the rewards today.
