PARKS FARMS, 525 Route 510 (a.k.a Route 24), Chester Township. 908-879-5509; one of the Lauries is likely to answer – and answer they will any questions you may have, especially about Parks peaches. Website: Follow on Facebook and Instagram @parksfarmschester. N.B. Not all GPS or mapping apps understand the difference between Chester Borough and Chester Township and might lead you to a similar address in the borough. Parks is about 3 miles from the intersection of Route 206 and Route 513/Main Street in the borough. Head east on 513/Main for a little less than a mile, then turn right (south) on Route 510 (which turns into Route 24). Parks is 2.1 miles from that turnoff, on the left. You’ll see a sign – and a telltale farm silo.
