Fruit growing offers many advantages to the farmer of the intermountain west, chief of which is the high return possible from a relatively small farm. Few crops will give as high an acre-yield or return as a properly located and managed orchard. Acre-yields of from 500 to 800 bushels of apples, pears, or peaches are not unusual. The work is pleasant, interesting, and healthful, as well as remunerative when properly conducted. Fruit Growing Attractive, Profitable
