Pictured from left are Brother Hiram Bailey (b.1888), hired man, and Brother Pliny Fisk Wooster.

After 1912 attention shifted away from the cultivation of herbs and to development of a commercial orchard. Under the care of Elder Delmer Wilson, a model orchard of some 2400 apple trees was established. The orchard remains commercially viable.
