Epitaph for a Peach: Four Seasons on My Family Farm


A poetic and autobiographical account of a critical turning point on the famed Masumoto family peach farm. Faced with the decision to either bulldoze an entire plot of peach trees his father planted 20 years before, or to commit himself completely to finding the right market for these especially flavorful fruits, he chooses the latter, and it takes himself, his family, and the California natural foods and farming movement irrevocably into a new future.
