The Peach Tree 

GYCC President, Dr. Jack Bagwell presents the July Award to Ben R. Smith, Owner 'The Peach Tree'

   

     In ancient China, where the peach is said to have originated about 4,000 years ago, an old proverb avowed, “Eat a peach and live forever”. Supposedly it possessed mystic powers and was worshiped as the “Three of Life”. Ben R. Smith Jr.’s great grandfather, Zadok D. Smith wrote in his diary of tending his small orchard near here in the 1860’s. B.R. Smith, Sr. began growing peaches in 1928 with five or six varieties. Until about 1960 his peaches were commercially packed and shipped up north.

     When Ben R. Smith Jr. entered the family operation in 1958, he heard complaints from people who said they “could never buy good peaches’ in a county with more than ten packing houses. Everything except “culls” (seconds) was shipped out. Gradually shipping stopped and today The Peach Tree is a local market proudly serving you with the finest peaches grown anywhere!

     Through the years, expansion has included stocking a variety of fresh produce, canned goods and mixes featuring South Carolina grown and/or produced items.

     In the early ‘90’s, the addition of a full service ice cream parlor boasting of 30 flavors and featuring fresh peach milkshakes enhanced the business. However, the heart of The Peach Tree has always been and always will be PEACHES, PEACHES, PEACHES!

Chamber Offers Web Advertising

  

   The Greater York Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce three new website advertising strategies to help increase its members brand recognition in the online marketplace.
   With over 3,300 page views and more than 1,800 visitors to the GYCC website in August 2012, advertising on the Chamber’s website increases viewers’ knowledge of what Chamber Members have to offer.
   The Chamber is introducing three levels of web advertising. The premier level advertiser appears on the GYCC homepage rotating every 10 seconds with three other advertisers. The ad will be designed and customized for each advertiser.
   The second opportunity allows members to advertise in the online business directory next to their membership listing with a 2” x 3” space perfect for a business card.
   The third opportunity places a company logo in the online business directory.
