O-Fine-O Washington Apple Crate Label
In 1934, excited by the burgeoning worldwide demand for fresh produce, Paul Thomas and his family formed Oneonta Trading Corporation in Wenatchee, Washington and became the first exporter of Washington apples. This packing company derives its name from the indigenous language of the Northeast American Indians. The Iroquois word, "Onaanta," has but two (of many) translations, which perfectly describe the panorama of central Washington. It means "mountain," or "where the rocks crop out." Reflecting the innovative and pioneering spirit of those who had blazed America's trail westward in the nineteenth century. The O-Fine-O Brand was from the 1950s and this label was used on bushel crates.
This large label measures 10” Wide x 8.75” High and features a pair of fresh apples, still on the vine. Oneonta still today maintains state-of-the-art packing facilities in no less than five locations, from Brewster to Yakima, Washington.
