Miller, of Fontana, Diamond Bar owner Frederick Lewis decided that garbage was a more cost-effective food source. In 1920, Lewis and Miller secured a garbage-hauling contract from the City of Los Angeles for a daily estimated 300 tons at a cost of 60¢ a ton. Soon, more garbage was being hauled than could be consumed, so an additional 35,000 feeder hogs were purchased and kept at Miller’s Fontana Farms. Lewis developed an automated system that allowed a crew of two men to feed the thousands of hogs in the same amount of time that it would take 100 men to do so in a conventional manner.

The home was nearly 5,000 square feet and consisted of five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three garages on a one-acre lot.
