A couple decides to chuck their business careers and become dairy farmers.

The nuts and bolts of farming—finding a farm, buying Brown Swiss, Jersey and Holstein cows, planting crops, daily chores, becoming graziers—this is the first half of the story. We watch as the woman struggles to follow her dream to write, to be a mother, to maintain a relationship in the midst of overwhelming farm problems. When the relationship collapses, it becomes a story of learning to accept losses, and reaping lessons from losses. Finally, it tells the story of how an artist comes into being.

Narrative, essay, poetry, photos, and even a few rhubarb recipes draw you into the story of one woman who made a life next to a row of rhubarb. The rural became the road.
