Communication should be sent to Alison Meares, 1703 W. Division St., #2, Chicago, II 60622. I would like to acknowledge the guidance of Cornelia Butler Flora, Rachel Parker-Gwin and Virginia R. Seitz throughout the research process and writing of this paper. I would also like to thank Jan Flora for his helpful comments on an earlier draft of this paper and anonymous reviewers for helping me to clarify my thinking. Most importantly I am indebted to the farmer participants whose own contributions to the analysis greatly informed the final writing of this paper. Finally I would like to thank the Land Stewardship Project, the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture and the Graduate Student Assembly of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University for financial and logistical support.
