Meet "the Farmers"

Actually, we’re the Rehkops, a couple who fell in love with this property as soon as we laid eyes upon it more than a decade ago. We planted our first peach trees in 2004, and while other newbie farmers might have eased into it, not us … not Byron!

Our orchard began with 300 trees — no small feat for two people with “day jobs.” But, the passion grew and within a few years so did our orchard, topping out at 1,250 peach trees in 13 varieties! Each year these beauties yield nature’s nectar in these delectable little peach orbs.

Nowadays, Byron dedicates his schedule full-time into nurturing the farm and adding to the property’s offerings. Byron built the Ceremony Barn, the Pavilion, Deck, Produce Stand … all the charming “hardscapes” at Orchard Farms (well, all except our private home). Hope lends her decorating skills and enthusiasm to the venue business to help ensure that each event is unique and well-appointed.

We invite you to come tour our beloved farm, our eclectic and “Southern Chic” event offerings, and sample our wonderful peaches!

Louise Renault

"One of the many perks to living in the East Texas area is the incredible produce each summer offered by the various Farmer's Markets. But, none compares to visiting a peach orchard to snag fruit straight off the trees! This is a must-visit each year for our family."

Felicia Gillies

"This is such a unique place! I can just picture what a wedding would be like in these surroundings. Some day I'll definitely be saying my "I do's" here!"
