A Sad Summer for Lane Packing

Recommended Posts

Yes it's a sad summer for Lane Packing just when they have one of the biggest peach harvest on record.

In 1990 Lane Packing built a new peach packing facility which featured state of the art machinery to clean, sort, label, and allow for easy hand packing of peach boxes. This machinery included an upper cat walk so tourist could marvel at this process. This has become a tourist hot spot in GA with approximately 400,000 visitors last year. 

 

Now 29 years after opening the catwalk (just as peach season started) some government bureaucrat decided they didn't like that. Enacted a new regulation which forced Lane Packing to close down the catwalk. Just another example of Big Brother stepping in and screwing it for the little guy. 

 

I've been walking that catwalk once or twice a year for almost 20 years but not this year. Fortunately I have some pictures taken from the catwalk from a couple of years ago. Here are a few of those pictures.

It is too bad. They're just peaches. You know that fruit they display out in the open at grocery stores where anybody with who knows what germs on their hands gets to fondle them before you come along and buy them. 

The agriculture industry in America is having a hard enough time these days with tariffs. We really don't need government bureaucracy throwing other curve balls like this.

Just some bureaucrat flexing their "muscles" to prove to themselves that they have a meaningful job and doing something important! Sad indeed!

A new rule requires additional personnel to be hired to enforce it.  It is an economic stimulus action to create jobs.
