BY LI-YOUNG LEE
From blossoms comes
this brown paper bag of peaches
we bought from the boy
at the bend in the road where we turned toward
signs painted Peaches.
From laden boughs, from hands,
from sweet fellowship in the bins,
comes nectar at the roadside, succulent
peaches we devour, dusty skin and all,
comes the familiar dust of summer, dust we eat.
O, to take what we love inside,
to carry within us an orchard, to eat
not only the skin, but the shade,
not only the sugar, but the days, to hold
the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into
the round jubilance of peach.
There are days we live
as if death were nowhere
in the background; from joy
to joy to joy, from wing to wing,
from blossom to blossom to
impossible blossom, to sweet impossible blossom.
This weekend! Super juicy Asian Pears and Peaches! Buy 3 Bags, Get the 4th Bag Free! Enjoy summertime while you still can! 🍑Open 9-3, Sat and Sun. Last pickers in 30 minutes before closing. See website for details. Thanks!!
Best peaches of the entire year!! Right now- today! These won’t hang on the trees for long. Buy 3 bags, get the 4th bag free! 🍑🍑🍑🍑Open 9-3 today, Sunday. Last pickers in 30 minutes before closing. Share with friends who love peaches!

This is a very cool (short) video, shot by world class paraglider, Tom Ceunen, who is originally from Belgium. Tom took off in the mountains near Front Royal and managed to paraglide all the way to Hollin Farms! -You’ll get a sneak peak of our corn maze for the fall, and also see how Tom made a very smooth landing! 😀
