Our county seat, Fort Valley, is known as “the peach capital of Georgia.” It lies at the center of a dynamic industry that cultivates over half the peaches harvested in the state. Peach County is home to Lane Southern Orchards, the largest peach and pecan operation in North America. And every year, thousands of visitors flock to the Georgia Peach Festival in Byron and Fort Valley to taste dozens of varieties of peaches and enjoy the world’s largest peach cobbler – which seems to reach more epic proportions every season. It’s a highlight of summer, along with the heavenly scent of fresh peaches in the air everywhere. The peach is a natural symbol for our county.
