The history of Felger’s Peat Moss
However, during the depression years, like many other farmers,
the land was lost for lack of cash to pay the taxes. Sadly, the family had to move. After Herb’s senior year in high school, jobs were hard to find. Herb joined the C.C.C. Camps established by President Franklin Roosevelt.
He then enlisted in the National Guard and spent time in the U.S. Marine Corp. After the outbreak of WWII,
Herb then joined the Navel Civil Service.
Wanting to help in the war effort, he was stationed in Pearl Harbor, working as a machinist on naval vessels.
Herb immediately began stock piling peat moss, black soil, gravel, driveway stone, and cinders. The business was called 'Herb Felger Peat Moss'. Jerry was three years old at the time, and constantly at his father’s side. Jerry Felger loaded his first pickup truck, when he was eight years old, much to the customer’s surprise. The business grew as Jerry grew.
In the late 1960’s, Felger’s Peat Moss
As the business grew, Jerry’s wife, Deedee, joined Ruth in the office too, thus making it a complete family operation.
Herb Felger passed away in 1999.
