From Packing Houses of Santa Clara County
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Dried fruit packers in the Santa Clara Valley bought fruit from local farmers, and re-sold it to wholesalers or retailers. Packing house buyers would visit or mail the farms early in the season, estimate the likely size of the crop, and offer a price per pound for the delivered fruit. The farmers were responsible for drying the fruit and transporting it to the packing house once the harvest came in. The packing houses then sorted, washed, and packed the fruit.
