Fresh Peaches in Hillsboro, Oregon


The farmland outside Hillsboro, Oregon is verdant, lush, and picturesque. We visited a you-pick peach orchard an hour or two after sunrise to gather the last ripe peaches of the season.

They were still cool from the night and dripping with juice. It was the first time I’d ever eaten a peach right off the tree, and it was amazing.

  1. PEACHES by Presidents of the USA

    Movin’ to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches
    I’m movin’ to the country I’m gonna eat me a lot of peaches
    I’m movin’ to the country I’m gonna eat a lot of peaches
    Movin’ to the country I’m gonna eat a lot of peaches

    Peaches come from a can they were put there by a man
    In a factory downtown
    If I had my little way I’d eat peaches everyday
    Sun soakin bulges in the shade

    Movin’ to the country I’m gonna eat a lot of peaches
    Movin’ to the country I’m gonna eat a lot of peaches
    I’m movin to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches
    Movin’ to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches

    I took a little nap where the roots all twist
    Squished a rotten peach in my fist
    And dreamed about you woman
    I poked my finger down inside makin’ a little room for an ant to hide
    Nature’s candy in my hand or can or a pie

    Millions of peaches peaches for me
    Millions of peaches peaches for free
    Millions of peaches peaches for me
    Millions of peaches peaches for free

    Look out

    Millions of peaches peaches for me
    Millions of peaches peaches for free
    Millions of peaches peaches for me
    Millions of peaches peaches for free

    Look out
