A $250,000 Orchard Deal
The largest orchard deal 'n the
Rogue River VaUev has just been con
sumated. Dr. K. C. Page has Suld the
famous Suncrest nn-harJ near Talent
to H. R. Camobell-a capitalist with
large property holdings in Milwaukee
and Minneapolis fur a Quarter of a
million dollars. He will probably sub
divide it as it was planted in that view.
The property contains 31.000 trees
covering 461 acres- of w hich 140 acres
in full bearing is said to b the most
perfectly grown block of trees in the
Pacific Northwest. There are also .'IK)
acres of voung pear trees of which 100
acres have peach fillers.
The euuioment of the property is
ideal having a large ranch house,
two barns, packing house, teams and
a toll line of machinery nocemarv for
ill care. The fall work has been car
ried on consistently and the ranch is
now in perfect shape. The location is
one and a half miles from Talent and
the sloping hillsides gives it not only
perfect soil and air drainage but over
looks the valley for miles.
Patterson ranches, now the Suncrest
orchards- have been known for years
among the greatest producers of agri
cultural products in the vallev. As a
fruit ranch the uncreet orchards is
now and will be in the future one cf
the great show places that will com
mand the attention of the public. JAnh
