Diary of Peach Farming: Pre-Season Thoughts

Sometimes we don’t even notice the uniqueness of our business. We get wrapped up in the day-to-day trying to get everything done. Then, I’ll open a drawer or cabinet and find a small but cool reminder like this very old bank bag! Something like this will certainly make you pause and be grateful for the longevity of our family farm.

At some point we must’ve done business at the Anna Jonesboro National Bank before the opening of Farmers State Bank in Alto Pass. Our farm, our family, our town and our county is rich in history. We are steeped in hospitality, old-fashioned beliefs in how to treat people, pride in the quality of what we do, and willingness to lend a hand.
We open up in 22 days for the 2022 season. We are humbled this is our 149th year in business and you all have supported us so long. We want to personally invite each of you to spend time with us. We hope you enjoy the flowers, the peaches, the people you meet here, and make your way through beautiful Union County, Illinois while you’re here!
The Rendleman-Sirles Family, Since 1873.
