Charles Edward (CE) Crandall homesteaded 120 acres in Orem Utah in 1887. On the land he planted fruit trees and strawberries. He worked hard to make sure that he could provide a good life for his family.
CE's grandson, Merrill (Sam) Crandall purchased 15 acres from his grandfather and helped to shape the farm into what it is today. He built a fruit stand and packing shed where, as a family, they would work to provide great fruit for the community.
