Laughing Grasshopper Produce
     May 12, 1983 - A new business has come to main street of Jewell, owned and operated by Roger and Myra Altman.    The Altmans have lived in Ellsworth since last December with their five year old son, Andrew.   They previously owned a wholesale greenhouse in the Quad Cities area.  They are carrying a wide variety of bedding plants, fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, and lawn and garden accessories.   They grow all the bedding plants and vegetables themselves in greenhouses on their acreage.  They will have the fresh fruit year around, along with Christmas trees and poinsettas during the holiday season.

The Laughing Grasshopper Produce business closed when it was known that the building was to be removed.
The removal of this main street structure provided the space for a new building.
