Behind the Scenes: Ogden Peach Orchard

Volunteers pick peaches at an LDS Church-owned peach orchard in Ogeden, Utah.
The LDS Church grows all of its own food to help people in emergencies or to provide food at Bishop's Storehouses. The Ogden, Utah peach orchard has 7,000 fruit trees and produces 850,000 pounds of fruit each year. Trees in the orchard are 45 years-old and are some of the oldest trees in the state of Utah. The Ogden orchard grows five different types of peaches and relies on volunteers who come and pick peaches. Volunteers serve for around 20,000 hours each year to help the orchard function. There are Church-owned farms and orchards across the United States that help to serve hundreds of thousands of people across the world.
