Title Pea Canning
Description Farmers took the vines and stored them in silos where they were used as silage to feed their animals. The pungent odor of the silage could be detected for many blocks. There were six viners during the first year of to those in Manti, Ephraim, Mayfield, Christianburg and Clarion. The viners extended into Juab and Sevier far as Murray. Frank Garbe received a letter from a man who had been given work at the plant during World War II. The man was a transient who caine to Manti plant and asked for work. He was badly needed so was given a job stocking, in silage. He was promoted to several different jobs and finally finished as a platform foreman. The letter received a year later said: I want to thank you for the job you gave me. I have been all over the United States and worked on many jobs. Never in all my life have I seen people work so hard and be so happy working long hours as I saw at the Manti cannery. I surely had my eyes open to this wonderful feeling of friendship and love given me there. During the Depression it became very difficult for the canning plants in Utah to continue their operation. The Manti-Ephraim Canning Company, the Twin Peaks Canning Company (Murray-Draper), the Van Allen Canning Company (Roy, Ogden and Tremonton) joined forces and merged into the Rocky Mountain Packing Corporation with Harold P. Fabian as President and Hans P. Peterson as Vice President. Under this new corporation. acrea&e and production increased and new warehouses and viners were built. New and modern equipment was installed. Two viners were placed in Salina, one in Redmond, one in Axtell, two in Gunnison, three in Sterling, four in Fayette, three in Clarion, four in Mayfield, seven in Manti, nine in Ephraim, two in Moroni, five in Nephi, one in Chester, two in Spring City, three in Mt. Pleasant and one in 99
