One of the most prosperous and well known places of Yolo county, Cal., and indeed of the entire state, is the Golden Star orchard, owned and operated by Harry E. Sackett, whose able and efficient conduct of this place has brought it to a high state of cultivation, so that its product has gained world-wide fame for its particularly fine quality.
The son of an old pioneer in this state, and one who built up a fane and extensive property in this county, Mr. Sackett belongs to a family whose members have counted greatly in the history of this as well as the countries of Great Britain, and he has inherited the sturdy elements of the race and carried on the excellent work of his father, being a credit to his family, a worthy bearer of the honored name.
Born January 13, 1864, in Solano county, a half mile across Putah creek from Winters, the eldest son of Buel R. and Susan (Williams) Sackett, Harry E. Sackett was here reared to manhood, receiving an excellent training, attending the Lafayette grammar school in San Francisco. Upon completing his studies he engaged in horticulture, spending eight years in Fresno county, Cal., after which he became proprietor of a commission business in San Francisco, his trade being entirely wholesale. In 1907 he purchased one hundred and sixty-three acres adjoining his father's place, which he now operates, having twenty-eight acres in a vineyard of the tokay variety. Much of the land is in meadow and pasture, but the most important department is the fifty acre orchard of plums, apricots and peaches, which vie with the grapes in their profitable cultivation and enormous crops. During the season of 1910 the apricots yielded twenty tons and the peaches eight-five tons, while the table grapes produced fifty tons and were marketed in thirty-five hundred crates. Mr. Sackett's packing house is equipped so extensively that it allows for all the packing of the fruit raised on the place to be handled for shipping there. The product is shipped to different cities in the east under the brand "Golden Star," and is in demand by many who handle it throughout the country. Mr. Sackett has named his place the Golden Star orchard because of the brand his goods carry and its reputation is wide and favorable.
Mr. Sackett was married to Lena Bryce, who is a native of Kentucky. She is very popular in their community and is an active worker in the Rebekah Lodge in Winters, while her husband holds membership with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Woodmen of the World.
Mr. Sackett has followed closely in the footsteps of his eminent father, devoting all his time and all of his splendid energies to the cultivation and improvement of the property, and his energies have been abundantly justified by the returns he has received. Personally he is practical and thorough in all his undertakings, temperate in all his habits, and he holds the confidence and respect of all with whom he is associated.
