Historic Overview

Sunny Slope Farms in South Carolina actually began in New Jersey. Although this might seem unusual it was because Vincent Caggiano came to America at the age of 16 to work on a New Jersey farm. After diligently saving his money, Vincent started growing peaches on his own farm in 1914. The business grew and in 1943, three of his sons started the farm in Gaffney, South Carolina. The farm in Gaffney grew to 2,500 acres, but that changed in the 1990s when the family decided to close the South Carolina farm and sell the property. The final land holdings were sold in 2007. The property in New Jersey is still going strong and has grown to over 1,000 acres. Today Sunny Slope still operates in New Jersey and is run by Vincent’s son, Al, and his kids. The company is still family owned and they maintain the original tradition of growing peaches that are "just a little bit better".

This Sunny Farms peaches label dates back to the 1960s and measures 9” Wide x 7.5” High. It is a very dramatic label with its dark blue background and center image of an antique racecar and driver. The racer is flanked by peaches on either side and underneath the motto that is the reason for the race car, “The Leader”, Through Research. This hard to find label will look great mounted.

JuicyGold South Carolina Peach Label
This South Carolina peach crate label measures 8" Wide x 2.87" High and features a golden peach on a black and blue background. It comes from the Ridge Peach & Vegetable Association which was a group of growers from Ridge Spring, Johnston, Trenton & Monetta, S.C. JuicyGold's sales office was in Ridge Spring. We believe this label dates to the 1950s.   Ridge Spring, South Carolina, was settled over 250 years ago and is still populated by decendants of some of the original families. First incorporated on December 23, 1882, the town held a Centennial Celebration in the Fall of 1982. Beautiful plantation houses were built throughout the area after the Revolutionary War. Many of these lovely homes have survived and grace the countryside. The town was named Ridge Spring for the natural raised ridge of the land and for the spring of pure water which provided delicious drinking water.   Cotton began as an important crop in the early 1800s. Vast acreages were grown for many generations and transported by wagon to Hamburg, S. C. for shipment by barge to Savannah, Georgia. From early days the cultivation of the peach seemed particularly suited to the soil and climate of The Ridge. Through the years other crops such as corn, asparagus, soybeans, cotton and numerous more have been grown in the fertile soil of Ridge Spring.   There is an annual Harvest Festival each October. The charm and gracious southern living of this agrarian community continues today for those who call “the Ridge” their home and for those who are fortunate enough to visit.   WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
