Buckingham County: Delicious Peaches


Peach cobbler, anyone?

These summer peaches, packed by Seven Island Packing Co. in Arvonia, Buckingham County, look delicious.

Can anyone offer any tidbits of history about the packing plant?

    Thanks, Richard! I hope you get some good peach pie in Florida! You will have to catch up on your Ramblings when you return!

      Dear Buckingham reader,

      My first memories of Buckingham was in the year 1954/55. I learned much more in the sixties. My recollection of peaches was at Davidsons orchard on Route 15. I remember talking with Mr. Davidson who stated that he owned about 3,000. I am interested in knowing how he is kin to us who descend from Jane Childers Smith. I think he had Childers blood. I hope you see this Bill Davidson.
