"The Blossoms are Ghosts at the Wedding" is a collection of essays and poetry evolved out of Mr. Jay’s now well-known approach to etymology as the art of conservation, casting language in the metals of primary cultures, of their anima/animal spirit, and in our present need for a decolonial reinhabitation. His essays “Salmon of the Heart” and “The Necessity of Beauty” are included here as studies in a wilderness which sustains and upholds the continuous backroads and highways of our vagrant civilizations. With an Introduction by Tony Angell, the book contains a portfolio of eighteen photographs by the late Mary Randlett documenting the casting of Salmon Woman & Raven, a Tom Jay sculpture commissioned by the city of Bellevue, Washington.

Join us daily— 12 to 9pm— for farmcrafted hard cider on draft, cider cocktails and non-alcoholic options available in our Tap Room, and guided tastings and orchard tours on weekend afternoons. The Finnriver Kitchen is now serving seasonally-inspired, locally-sourced foods from 12-8pm seven days a week. On weekends, we host an array of fabulous food vendors: Dented Buoy Woodfired Pizza, Hama Hama Seafood, La Crêpe de Quimper and Fiddlehead Creamery vegan ice-cream.
