Around 1939, Brack Deal and his wife Thelma Isabelle (Belle) Deal planted the first of our orchards.
Clearing much of the land with a mule was hard work on the steep mountain orchard behind their
home. They, and their three children, started out with approximately 15 acres of orchard.
The same orchard has been replanted and is still being used today producing delicious apples.
Brack & Belle's son, Lindsay, and his family still run the business today as Deal Orchards, Inc., growing over 100 acres of fruit.
