Intensive Farming Practices Make
Mills Farm at Hover One of This
Valley's Outstanding Sup cesses
This week we visited the tree;
known as Billy, from Hover on up
the valley.
Tree-covered is not exaggeration
in describing Billy's p lace just south
of the Hover store and post office.
'Just under 15 acres of ground in
the farm, and hardly enough space
taken out for buildings. Even the
Mills comfortable farm house has
beautiful fruit trees for part of the
shade, some of them overhanging
the roof on the south and west sides.
The biggest spot on the farm devoid
of trees is the lawn on the north
side of his house next to the drive
way. ‘
However, the beauty of the trees
isn’t what makes the farm go. It’s
the fruit. But it is fortunate that
so much food can be produced
among so much beauty. How dif
ferent from the dirty, sordid and un
inviting surroundings of many of the
nation’s principal industrial sec
tions. A ,
Nestled back next to the hill skirt
ed by the irrigation canal at the
extreme tail end of the Columbia
Irrigation District system, where the
ditch has shrunk in size until you
can almost step across it, the Mills
farm sits on «top of forty feet of the
valley’sfibest soil. Billy knows it is
forty feet deep because that was the
exact distance the well digger went
when digging a well right at his
house. i
The Mills farm, of which Billy’si
brother, Charlie, has one almost like
it next door, has an unusual ar
rangement of crops, both tree and
ground. The entire farm is planted
to trees, but not closely spaced, the
ground between them is utilized for
most other crops known to this re
gion. The trees themselves follow
the same plan—there is no “cherry”
section, no “peach” section; but
three varieties of peaches, cherries.
prunes, are alternated alo the
rows. While on fruits, Billy graze his

crops based on their contributions
