Businessmen of Delta County were invited to see new farm practices in a tour of Delta County farms as guests of the Michigan State University Extension Services in 1958. The day-long tour wound up in Gladstone at the Hansen Canning Co. plant, which was in its annual pea canning operation. Pictured watching the process are, from left, Joseph L. Heirman, Henry G.
