Cupertino is located in the state of California and a city in Santa Clara County, which sits directly on San Jose's western side, and on the west edge of the Santa Clara Valley, and the portions of the city extend up to the Santa Cruz Mountains' foothills. During the 19th century, the area where the present-day Cupertino stands is a small rural village that is situated in the crossroads of Stevens Creek Road and along the Saratoga-Mountain View Road. The intersection has been dominated by the R. Cali Brothers Feed Mill for decades and was replaced at present by the Cali Mall Plaza and the City Hall. The city's primary economic activity was in agriculture by growing fruits, and most of the land that is part of Cupertino's present boundaries are covered with apricot, plum, prune, and the cherry orchards.
