The Peach Truck will return to Owensboro twice this summer, making a stop at Tractor Supply Co. (3130 Villa Point) from 1-3 p.m. on both June 6 and July 11.

Georgia peaches and pecans will be available, but customers will need to order in advance. To order, visit thepeachtruck.com.

Founder Steven Rose spent his high school years in Owensboro but grew up in Georgia. In 2010, he moved to Nashville but was disappointed that he couldn’t find the flavorful peaches he grew up loving in the Peach State.

In 2012, he decided to do something about it.

With his wife Jessica, he bought a ’64 Jeep truck and started selling Georgia peaches out of it.

In just a little more than a month, patrons bought more than 10 tons of peaches and the two were in business.
