[edit] Lane County

Aside from improved transportation to markets provided by the railroad system, two important agricultural institutions were established in the region that encouraged the development of commercial fruit orchards in the Springfield area. The Lane County Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association, later called the Eugene Fruit Growers Association, was created in 1908 as a farmer-owned operation that gave the growers control over the processing and marketing of locally grown fruit (Forster 1983:14).
