Greene Brothers Well & Pump Inc. has proudly served the well and pump needs of Western North Carolina since 1945. At that time Boyce Tillman Greene Sr. and Raymond Greene were using churn drills to pull water from the ground. Production was much slower at less than 20 feet per day. The Tanker Truck was a pickup with a 55 gallon barrel filled with water and a fence post was put in the barrel to reduce spillage. Instead of chains and binders to secure pipe, chains and a dogwood pole did the trick. Every Friday night was spent sharpening bits. An oil fired brick furnace was used to get the bits red hot then they were hammered back into shape for the next weeks work.
