This silent black and white film, which was produced between 1900 and 1910, depicts the processing of hops and their shipment to market. Emil Clemens Horst, at one time, owned the largest number of acres of hops under cultivation in the world. One of Horst’s oldest and most productive hop ranches was the site of Campus Commons in Sacramento along the American River. There are three distinct sections to the film. The first part is the hop separator in operation on the “Campus Commons” ranch. The second section is scenes in hop fields at Hopland, California or in Oregon. The third section is on the weighing and transportation of bales of hops by the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company probably near Portland, Oregon.
