Windy Acres Farm in Geneva hosted the first weekend of its Peach Festival last week and brings back the fun July 18 and 19, with Illinois' crop of peaches ripe for the eating.

The event will feature homemade peach cobbler, plus a beer garden offering peach-themed drinks, spiked peach slushes, peach cider, peach popcorn and other temptations. There will be grilled food as well as music. It runs 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, with the beer garden opening an hour later at noon Sunday.

Featuring an expansive farm stand brimming with products, along with family-friendly activities, Windy Acres Farm is at 37W446 Fabyan Parkway in Geneva.
