-CRAWFORD COUNTY'S FUTURE
The following interview with Mr. Fred HOESLI, owner of the Oak Grove Creamery, perhaps one of the best known and most successful farmers in the county, ought to be proof enough of the assertions that have been made in these columns that Crawford county is a good place to build a home and that farming can be made to pay here.
A HOME FARMER'S EVIDENCE.
"ONE day last week Ex-Supervisor Fred HOESLI was in town. I asked him: 'How much of a farm have you got out there, Mr. HOESLI?' "Three hundred and sixty acres. I have only one hundred acres cleared, but it is practically all under good wire fence."
"And it's jack pine plains and you've lived on it over twenty years. Will you tell me what you think of it for farming purposes - and what you know about making a home here in Crawford county? Tell it your own way. It will be printed in the AVALANCHE and may help someone to decide on settling here."
"Well, that's a long story you've called for," replied Mr. HOESLI. "Of course, in my judgment, Crawford county is as good a place as I know of to make a home in, or I should have moved out a good while ago.
"Farming has paid me fairly well here. Of course it hasn't been like Mr. ROCKAFELLER's Standard Oil Co., but I have a notion it will average with the same occupation in other sections of the state.
"To start in with I have an idea that my soil is perhaps a shade better than the lighter sandy soils of the county. there is some gravel in it. But it is not a heavy soil by any means. there is no secret about making it pay - it was simply a matter of clover and stock, and of keeping it up.
"I do not think I could show any record-breaking crops during my twenty years of working it. But I have had pretty good crops - as good as they will average almost anywhere in the state.
"Well, I judge that 20 bushels of rye to the acre is about the average I have raised. Wheat has gone as high as 25 bushels. Corn usually from 65 75 bushels - I think 89 bushels of ears to the acre the biggest crop I have ever had. Buckwheat goes from 16 to 18 bushels with me. I get 20 to 25 bushels of barley. these are not immense figures, I am aware, but they are the facts.
"As to hay crops I have never had a failure. I have cut two tons of clover to the acre - that is mixed clover - June, mammoth and alsike - on 'plains' land. The ordinary crop runs from one and a quarter to one and a half tons to the acre. My last year's hay crop was a little over 70 tons from 40 acres.
"I keep all the stock I can handle, Have at present 35 head of cattle and 62 hogs and pigs, besides my working teams. I have a good grade Durham bull. I raise Berkshire hogs.
"My experience with fruit has been excellent. I have never had a failure with apples since my trees came into bearing. Grapes, strawberries, gooseberries and currants all have done well for me and bring good crops. I have never made a specialy of such things, nor have I given them other than the ordinary care any farmer gives such things. I have raised always enough for my own use and usually have a surplus to sell, Raspberries and blackberries are also a good crop. I know of no place in the state where I believe such things would do any better if handled prperly.
"Vegetables of all kinds have always been a good crop with us. It is hardly necessary to specify - every variety of vegetable grown in Michigan does well here and that with otdinary farmers' garden care.
"Referring again to the fruit question, in conversation with some of the people who think fruit cannot be raised in this section one day last fall I offered any one of them a ten-dollar bill to go into my orchard and find an apple with a blemish on it. And I meant it. I never saw more perfect fruit grown.
"No, I had practically no capital when I came here, and of course had a few years of uphill work to get things going. But I think any man with ordinary grit and judgment can make farming a success here in Crawford county. It takes work - but it takes that to bring success in any line of business.
"And in this country a man need not be idle a single day. There is always work at good wages. In fact, there is always a shortage of help.
"Yes, I believe there is a great future before us here in Crawford county. What we want is more settlers. Out in our little neighborhood, ten miles from Grayling, we have a good school and good neighbors. But we want more and there is ample room - thousands of acres of good land lying idle - waiting only for men to convert it into homes.
"Our seasons average good. It is very rare that we do not have plenty of rainfall. Our soils are warm and things grow quicker and in a shorter season here than they do further south. I believe the time is coming when it will be considered a better farming country.
"Take it in stock-raising. It is an established fact that northern grown and bred stock is hardier and more vigorous than that grown further south. In breeding, desireable qualities can be more surely transmitted to offspring here than further south. There is something invigorating and upbuilding in our clear air and water and even the qualities of the soil.
"When the great idea of scientifically up-building, breeding and adapting to localities, not only in stock, but in fruits, grasses, vegetables, etc., is better understood and comes to be practised by the common run of farmers there will come many surprises as to the capabilites and resources of this northern section.
"I am satisfied that the county offers as good and in many respects better advantages to the young man who means business in the farming line than anything he can find in the treeless prairies of the west, and there are certainly very palpable advantages here for the homeseeker over the high-priced lands of the older and more thickly settled sections of the state.
"I am glad this question of settling up the county is being pushed. It is just what we need most." (30 Mar 1905)

-There is a photo of Fred HOESLI's Grayling Tp. Farm Home in this issue. (15 Nov 1906)

-Fred HOESLI came very near going to the "Happy Hunting Ground" last week Wednesday. He was putting his cattle in the barn, when he found himself flying through space thrown from the horns of a bull, which was instantly on top of him, preventing his getting up. As the beast lowered his head for a plunge, he fortunately caught him by his nose ring and gave such a twist that he turned enough for him to get on his knees. He clung to the ring until a rope was brought and the animal secured. If Fred don't get over being old the bull will not live to reach the century mark. (11 Apr 1907)

- Died - At his home in the east part of this township Tuesday, Feb. 16, Fred HOESLI, aged 58 years. The deceased was born in Canton of Glarus, Switzerland in 1851, where he received the liberal common education of that land and learned the trade of gunsmith. He came to America in 1868, an drifted to New Orleans, and came back to Cinncinnati except the time for one brief visit to the Fatherland, until 1882, when he came to this county and located a homestead on Section 26 in township 27N, of Range 2W, then a part of the township of Grove, and later called Blaine, but now a part of Grayling. Here success has been with him until he had erected a fine farm home with comfortable and commodious buildings, large and well cultivated fields a magnificent orchard, fine stock and modern tools and machinery, seemingly all that was necessary for the years of comfort and happiness, which his many friends hoped would be his. He has been Supervisor of his township and held several township and school district offices, serving with satisfaction to his constituents who were glad to honor him. About two years ago symptoms of Brights disease appeared, and in spite of the best professional aid and care that could be had he failed steadily until the end.
He was a member of Crawford Tent K. O. T. M. M., and of Grayling Lodge F.& A. M. who have charge of the funeral services from the M. E. church at 1 o'clock this afternoon. On account of the illness of the Pastor, Rev. Mr. FLEMING will officiate. (18 Feb 1909)
