Durbin Farms Retail Market
Durbin Farms remains a small farming business that is thriving - even in our changing times. Much of this success is due to the principles originally set by the Durbins: grow the best quality fruit possible and make sure the customer's needs come first. At the retail market, you will find a wide selection of fruits and vegetables - including Chilton County peaches when in season - and a popular restaurant with fresh deli sandwiches, homemade ice cream and other desserts.
Durbin Farms' Retail Market is located at 2130 7th Street South in Clanton. From the campground, take I-65 South to Exit 205 and turn right. Hours are 9:00 am - 7:00 pm 7 days a week. Call 205-755-1672 or visit http://www.durbinfarms.com for more information.
Big Peach Tower
Located on I-65 between Birmingham and Montgomery (at Exit 212) is an impressively large water tower resembling a peach. Constructed in 1992, Clanton's Big Peach is 120 feet tall and holds 500,000 gallons of water! It was built to celebrate the importance of peaches to the area's economy. There is a peach-themed (of course!) restaurant nearby and fresh peaches, when in season, are not to be missed!
Since 1985, Peach Park has become a favorite stop to visitors of Chilton County. What started as a simple road-side fruit stand has become a place visited by thousands of people each year. In addition to fruits and vegetables, tasty local foods made from famous Chilton County Peaches are available for sale.
