Description
Full title:Jim Shinobu Tani, evacuee employee, H. J. Omayi, co-owner, Sam Hayashi, employee, and S. Butsuyen, co-owner, are pictured on the Maryfield Plantation, a farm located in the coastal area of Georgia. This farm consists of 1000 acres with 350 acres under cultivation. It was purchased by Mr. Butsuyen seven years ago and he states that he has made a success and is well satisfied. He has found the community residents friendly and neighborly. About February 15, 200 acres of iceberg lettuce will be ready to harvest. The majority of this crop is shipped to eastern markets, and brings about $4.65 per crate. The average yield per acre is 150 crates. Jim Tani, the evacuee, relocated from Minidoka. His former home was Oakland, California, where he was employed in a fruit market. In addition to his salary, Jim receives maintenance for himself and his family. His dwelling too is furnished by his employer. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru White Oak, Georgia.
