If I could only cultivate some small success, a minor triumph or two, I felt, he might be persuaded the farm could still work. My mother had her own doubts about my decision but was vastly more encouraging. It had been, after all, her side of the family through which the farm had passed hands. On my father’s side, steady, predictable jobs had been the norm: shopkeeper, chemist, government contractor. In contrast, on my mother’s side, it had been six straight generations of farmers. If I were somehow able to follow in their footsteps, I would be the seventh farmer in the family to work the land, dating from just after the American Revolution.
If I could somehow make the farm profitable once again, it would give me a legitimate reason to remain on the land I had grown to love. The Shenandoah Valley, where my ancestors settled, is famous for its natural beauty. Stretching from Roanoke to Harpers Ferry, the valley is roughly forty miles across, bounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains on the east and the West Virginia border to the west. The land is softly sculpted with wooded hillsides, and the Shenandoah River winds serenely through the lush valley bottom.

The aisles and shelves were filled not so much with food as they were with packaging, brightly colored brand names, cartoon mascots, designer labels perched next to generic knockoffs. It was a store devoted to creating an identity for food that had been stripped of its identity. Where, exactly, did rainbow-colored, sugar-frosted, air-puffed, marshmallow-infused cereal come from?
