About the Peach Barn
Kent and Dawna Livesay purchased the farm market and orchard in 1997 from Ernest and Dorothy (Blackledge) Fischer, and named it The Peach Barn Orchard & Bakery. Ernest Fischer was a past president of The National Peach Council, and their orchards were at one time the largest peach producers in Oklahoma.
The Fischer's established the farm market at the corner of Highways 69 and 51B in the 1970s. It was this property, and a portion of the Blackledge-Fischer orchards along Highway 69, that were purchased by Kent and Dawna.
The Livesay's added a gift area, along with their peach sundaes, shortly after buying the business. In 2006, they added the bakery, and began baking Porter Peach fried pies, whole pies, cobblers, and peach muffins. A year later, they also began offering fresh, made-to-order sandwiches!
