"Years ago,
our farm helped
to pioneer rural
says W. E. Vannier, Orchardist,
of Hood River, Oregon
"Looking back at the time when we first
had electricity that was in 1907 I can't
help making comparisons between then
and now. Our farm was one of the first,
and at the time one of the few, to have
electricity. Now I understand there are
more than 13,000 farms on PP&L lines
alone. What a difference it's made to
both farming and marketing, as profit
able uses for electricity have been de
veloped year after year!
Just this last year we put in an elec
trically operated stationary spray plant
that will enable the two of us to spray
the entire 35 acres of trees by ourselves
if we have to. With this plant we don't
have to haul the spray into the orchard
all we have to do is turn the switch, go
into the orchard, and start spraying. It
saves the work of two men.
"Right now we're figuring on an elec
tric irrigation pump, to lift water out
of the creek to add to the supply we get
from the canal. The boys at the PP&L
office helped us with plans for the spray
plant, and right along they give us sug
gestions that help us get the most from the
electricity we use to do our farm work."
We have special insurance for your
trucks. Come in and see us about it.

The 35 acres of apple, pear and cherry orchard
operated by W. E. Vannier and his brother,
Frank Vannier, is focated about miles
south of Hood River, in the Pine Grove dis
trict, and is one of the longest-established
orchards in the valley. Mr. and Mrs. H. M.
VannieF, parents of the brothers, bought the
first ten acres when they moved to the Hood
River Valley from the Dakotas in 1904. In
1910 they bought an additional ten acres, and
in 1918 the final 15 acres.
The Vanniers used coal oil lamps until
1907, when a line was built past their place
by the Hood River Electric Light, Power &
Water Company, which subsequently became
part of the PP&L system. They installed the
first electrically-operated domestic water sys
tem in the valley, had one of the first electric
washing machines, and one of the first elec
tric flatirons.
