I put my hand to the land,
Seems I was chosen as the one,
To plant the trees and raise the fruit
And do the work that’s never done.
Others put their hands to this land,
Building legacies that outlast time,
Each with a vision for a way of life
That I proudly say today is mine.
This peach carries my heritage
Of my father and those who came before.
This peach has the taste of generations
Who loved this land and dreamed of more.
