History of Fischer & Wieser
Our Founder's Story
The Fischer & Wieser Farmstead originated in 1928 when German immigrant J.B. Wieser planted a small peach orchard. His son Mark continued caring for the orchard during college breaks.
In 1969, Mark founded Fischer & Wieser’s Das Peach Haus – the region’s first permanent roadside fruit stand, crafted from an 1870’s German log cabin. Located in Fredericksburg, Texas, it became a popular spot for peach enthusiasts seeking locally harvested peaches and handcrafted preserves from the Texas Hill Country.
A decade later, Case Fischer, a dedicated worker, joined the team and developed a deep passion for farming and preserving. Inspired by the joy their products brought to customers, Case proposed a transformative idea to Mark – to expand their jams and jellies offerings – and Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods was born.
Today the company produces over 150 handcrafted specialty products across a family of brands that are available throughout the country and internationally.
Mark Wieser opens his first retail location, Das Peach Haus, in a restored 1870 log cabin.
