Abstract:

This documentary explores Silicon Valley's roots in agriculture. It examines how the valley has transformed from "the valley of heart's delight" to the technology capitol of the world. The fields and orchards that once dominated the area have virtually disappeared. Over just a few decades, the chips of silicon have replaced the fruits and vegetables of the land. But despite the changes, some farmers are still raising crops in Silicon Valley. This documentary tries to answer how the valley changed from agriculture to hi-tech and who are the remaining farmers in Silicon Valley.
