Full title:Mack Kurima and Charles Ogata, part owners and field supervisors of the Midwestern Farm Company owned by three resettlers, are shown picking tomatoes on one of the farms operated by the company this past season near Bartlett, Lombard, and Melrose Park, Illinois. The land was leased from the three farm owners on a share-rental basis. The crops included tomatoes, melons, carrots, onions, beans and pickles. The cucumber pickles were the most successful crop and onions proved least profitable. On the whole, the three owners were pleased with the venture. They employed 12 resettlers throughout the season and sometimes as many as 20 additional workers were employed. Both Mr. Kurima and Mr. Ogata came to Illinois from the Jerome Relocation Center and both were former residents in Florin, California, where Mr. Kurima was a farmer and Mr. Ogata both a farmer and a store owner.
