Description
Photo--black and white: Alfred Hallberg (1893-1976) owner of the Hallberg Apple Cannery in Graton in front of the Apple Blossom Tour sign next to the Sebastopol town welcome sign. Alfred Hallberg was an apple rancher and innovator. Oscar A. Hallberg, Alfred's brother, was Sonoma County's apple king in the days when Gravenstein apples were the crop of the county. The Hallbergs have been associated with apples in Sebastopol since 1886, when Oscar Hallberg's father, John F. Hallberg, arrived from Sweden to start an apple empire in the hills of western Sonoma County. Oscar Hallberg expanded the business, at one time owning more than 1,000 acres of apple orchards, and built processing plants for sauce, juice and cider, mostly from Gravensteins.To market fresh apples, he built the county's first cold storage plant. In 1918, he introduced the first floor-type dehydrator to Sonoma County.
