THE VINEYARD CALIFORNIAN RAISINS. PICKING AND CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 February 1911
I THE VINEYARD CALIFOKNIAN UAISINS. PICKING AND CURING. Three'prominent branches of the fruit industry in Caiiforna (states the "Orange Judd Farmer,") stand out be fore all others. These are' .oranges, prunes and raisins. These three are essentially Californian, and upon thein largely has her reputation been built. The output of raisins runs up to 60,000 tons, with a value of £1,200,000. It will, therefore, be understood that anything that affects the raisin crop has u strong influence on the prosperity of tin State. THE CURING PROCESS. The raisin is largely a manufactured article, for which the fresh grape is the raw material, and In the care with which this manufacturing process, tech nically known as curing, is conducted depends the quality of the raisin. The work of curing begins practically in June, although the grapes do not be gin to ripen for a month later, but the drying trays and sweat boxes must be prepared for the harvest, and by Au gust 1 they are piled up in the avenue...

Another Old Resident Gone. After a very lengthy illness arising from a complication of ailments an old resident of the district and a familiar figure in onr community, in &nbsp; the person of Mr. Patrick Burke, ex- pired at his residence, Mulyan Sub- division, yesterday morning at 2 o'clock. The sad avent was not wholly unexpected, as his condition for some days past had been so serious, as to cause the members of his family the greatest anxiety. His association with the district extended over a long range of years, the greater portion of which was passed on his farm amongst the hills overlooking Merriganowry. He was one of the first, if not the very first, selector in that locality, and subsequently proved a fairly successful sheep farmer. A couple &nbsp; of years back the state of his health, which had previously been good, became most unsatisfactory, and later on, when the symptons became more pronounced, he came to reside with his family in Cowra in order to be n...
