The Last of the Prune Pickers
July/Aug. 2011 California Country magazine
Story by Kate Campbell
Before the Santa Clara Valley was known for high technology, it was filled with fruit and nut orchards, especially prunes. The Last of the Prune Pickers by Tim Stanley harks back to those farm days, to the valley's roots. He tells the story of the family farm where he worked during summers when he was a teenager. $19.95.
