Our peach tree is broken at its main limb. We would like to know how to best handle it. The tree is about 7 years old.

I'm not sure if you mean limb or trunk. If it's the trunk, you're in trouble. Peach trees need a sturdy single trunk to support growth. You can try taking the tree down and allowing a shoot from the base to grow, but you'd probably be better off planting a new replacement.
If it's a limb, trim it back to the break and let nature take its course.
