Local families land spread in Better Homes and Gardens


Fredericksburg, its annual July 4th celebration and two local families known for food, the Fischers and the Wiesers, are being celebrated in the latest issue of the national lifestyle magazine Better Homes & Gardens.

Landing on newsstands and in subscribers’ mailboxes this week, the magazine devotes eight pages of photos and text — plus four additional pages of recipes — to the families on the farm that J.B. Wieser launched a century ago. It was from this farm that their specialty foods business was born in 1969.

The story, titled “Red, White & Peachy,” spotlights the holiday in Fredericksburg, including “parades, fireworks, and… peaches.”

“The article is full of my life in Fredericksburg,” said Fischer & Wieser president and CEO Case Fischer. “It’s certainly an honor. And it’s humbling to think that people would even want to know about Fischer & Wieser, Das Peach Haus, and the way our family has always celebrated July 4th.”
