'Peach man' Ken Easterling plans to be in Calhoun County on Friday

Ken Easterling

Ken Easterling now drives his late father's aging pickup twice a week during the peach season to Oxford and Anniston. It is a family tradition as much as it is about making a bit of money.

Chilton County peach farmer Ken Easterling, known in these parts as “the peach man,” is planning to be in Calhoun County on Friday selling peaches and home-grown tomatoes.

Easterling will be at Regions Bank, 804 S. Quintard Ave. in Oxford, starting around 6 a.m.
