I always love getting an email from Bud Baughman.
He’s the guy with the Northwest Kiwanis club who runs their annual peach fundraiser. Twice a year, the civic group sells boxes of peaches — in July from East Texas and in September from Colorado — and they are reliably the very best peaches I eat all year.
The money goes to dozens of local groups that the Northwest Kiwanis supports, including Austin Child Guidance Center and Any Baby Can.
The peaches, which come from McPeak Orchard in Pittsburg, Texas, are only sold in 22-pound boxes, but they include instructions on how to freeze them so you can enjoy them for months to come. Each box costs $47, and you can order them online at nwaustinkiwanis.org/peaches for pick-up between 8:30 a.m. to noon on July 7 at Anderson High School.
