Charles Anderson had an orchard in Orem. He got into farming when he married. Initially he farmed and worked at Geneva Steel. After 10 years he left Geneva Steel and bought out part of his father-in-law's orchard. One motivation to do this was his calling as bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He wanted to be able to attend his Sunday meetings and arrange his work around his church duties.
