WHAT: Travel to a bygone era and sample the best tree ripened peaches, nectarines, and plums the Santa Clara Valley has to offer. You will experience this special journey into our past - before the Valley of Heart's Delight became today's Silicon Valley. The Tasting, Tour, and Harvest Walk provide an opportunity for visitors from urban areas to connect with the farmer and learn more about how the food they eat is grown. It will include touring of the farm stand, the store/museum, the orchard, landscaped areas, the packing and, the drying facilities. Your guide (hopefully Andy Mariani) will cover the history of fruit, the Santa Clara Valley, fruit growing, marketing, varieties, drying, and so on. Fruit history is also Campbell's history.
