Located just outside of Ft. Valley, in the heart of Middle Georgia, Lane Southern Orchards has been growing peaches and pecans for more than 100 years. The farm that now totals almost 5000 acres was started in 1908 by John David Duke and at that time was known as Diamond Fruit Farm. At that time, peaches were shipped in wooden baskets, which Mr. John David also manufactured on the farm. The present packinghouse, a state of the art facility, was completed in 1990 and remains as one of the most modern and efficient packinghouses in the industry, with the capacity to pack and ship up to 1,000,000, 25 pound cartons of peaches per season. In 2006, Lane Packing Company, as it was then known, was purchased by Lane Southern Orchards, led by Sid and Rusty Banack of Vero Beach, Florida, who have grown, packed and shipped world famous Indian River Citrus for almost 50 years. Together, the two companies can now offer their customers a year-round supply of premium farm fresh peaches, oranges, grapefruit and pecans!
