Global Business: A Tale of Two Farms

September 17th, 2015

Episode 591 of 630 episodes

Peter Day continues his reports from the drought stricken central valley of California. This week he visits two family farms. Both grow fruit and nut crops. Both reflect the central role of migration and water in Californian history. They were founded by incomers; one from Japan, the other Mexico. But that is where the similarities end. These farms are separated by heartless geology. One has access to good quality groundwater, the other does not. Producer : Rosamund Jones
