Significance: This complex is representative of agricultural development in Santa Clara County during the early twentieth century. The barns and milk processing structures are similar to those found in many dairies in the vicinity. Twin Oaks Dairy, like many in the state before 1930, was operated by a family who leased the site from a large landholder. It was owned and operated by families of Italian-Swiss and Portuguese descent, this ethnic groups most often associated with this industry in California.
