Wenatchee’s World Famous Apple Orchards
Eastern Washington is world renowned for much of its agriculture, especially apples.
In our upcoming History Issue we look at the history of Wenatchee‘s orchards, the irrigation process, working with indians, and exporting apples during the Great Depression. It is a remarkable story and will surely alter the way you look at Washington’s apples.
The above photo features one of the picking crews in the Birchmount Orchards of the American Food Growers, Inc. in Wenatchee around 1930. See the rest of the photos, compliments of the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center, in our upcoming issue. Don’t miss it, subscribe today!
