EAGLE CREEK VALLEY
A Fertile Section rapable ol s.ii.<li> I —

Last Sunday we had the pleasure of a
drive up the v.-illey of Eagle Crick as
far as the A. L. Mitchell place, about
seven miles north of Leaven worth.
There is a good road as far as we trav
eled ami there aro numerous fine
ranches in the valley. Mr. Mitchell
bought his place from B. M. Helvel
two years ago and has made numerous
improvements since. He has a Wearing
orchard which is not large but has a
good crop of most excellent varieties of
fruit, consisting of apples, peaches,
pear<>, plums and cherries. All the
fruit is large and of line flavor. He also
has a strawberry be«l and told us that
"IT of nine short rows he sold more than
thirty dollars worth of lierries. He cut
two heavy crops of alfalfa, and has hay
to sell and hay to keep. He has nl>out
three acres in corn, whicli was not irri
gated, indeed can not be. because it is
on a high hill side, but he raised a good
quality of corn. It is of good size and
fully matured. He is also engaged
quite extensively in the growing of
vegetables for this market, and raised
everything in that line in the greatest
perfection. Mr. Mitchell has named
his place the Eagle Dale Dairy Kaneh,
and means in the future to devote a
good portion of his time to making
dairy products. In this way hi 1 can use
all his feed to the very bast advantage.
John Bjork owns the next ranch
down the creek. Mr. Bjork has the
making of one of the finest ranches in
this section of Chelan county. He has
a bearing orchard of considerable size
and fruit of every variety. His pears,
if exhibited at Wenatehee, would have
entered into competition with the best
shown there. George Kountz who
has charge of the ranch, said that he
hail sold seventeen dollars worth of
cherries oil one tree, ami picked over
two hundred gallons of strawberries,
besides which many gallons were given
away to parties who picked the berries
for themselves, and a considerable
quantity was allowed to rot in the
patch. As the product of his alfalfa and
timothy meadows Mr. Bjork has one
very large rick of hay and a large barn
as full as it can be packed. He also has
what you will not often see on a ranch
in this country, a beautiful ilower gar
den in full bloom. His hay crop was
very gojd, and is worth from $10 to $12
per ton now, and by spring will likely
be worth $l"> or $r $20, and will bring
anywhere from three to four hundred
B. M. Belvcl is improving a fine place
just U'low the Bjork ranch on which
Le has done consiilerable work. It is
his intention to clear the whole valley
and sow it down in alfalfa, believing
there is more money in the hay crop
than anything else he can engage in.
He has considerable acreage already in
alfalfa and it looks line.
Mr. Freund's place lies at the mouth
of tbe creek and runs across the Chum
stick valley. His place does not show
much clearing from the road, liut the
land is equally as rich anil productive
as that surrounding it and only necils
development to make it a valuable
There is at) abundance of water for
irrigation purposes in the Eagle Creek
valley, and it should be mentioned here
that there are a number of ranches
above the Mitchell place. The John
Schmidt place sold last fall for ten
thousand dollars to Spokane parties
and is now in charge of Mr. \V. I. Van
Tbe community has just completed a
first class school house ntar the A. L.
Mitchell home and will in the future
have a good school.
This portion of Chelan county is not
generally considered a farming country
and perhaps the land that is capable of
profitable cultivation is somewhat lim
ited. But there is a vast deal of land
surrounding Leavenworth, tbe fertility
and productiveness of which can not be
surpassed any where on earth, and
when the hoallhfulness of the climaie,
mildness of the winters is taken into
consideration it must eventually prove
a;n attractiv« field for the homeseeker.
It U with the purpose of calling atten
tion to these possibilities, to the char
acter arfd Variety of the products, that
these occasional articles are written, in
the hope that the paper may full into
tht hands of some one who is looking
for a home and wftuld be suited here.
