The Umlor Family

Roger's grandfather, Walter Umlor, bought the land in 1930 and started the farm with 80 acres, which has always been heavy in fruit production.  Today, there is one main farm in Conklin, as well as two satellite farms in the Hart and Shelby area, consisting of about 600 total acres and over 340 acres of apples.  Roger, along with his father Bob, uncle Ray, brother Mark and cousin Steve run the farm together.
