any idea where this is from ?

Hey Mark,

Perhaps from These Guys... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rp89oKjArto)

"Things weren't always so bleak on what's now called the Luther Belden Farm. The land has been in Darryl Williams' family since 1661, operating mostly as a vegetable and livestock farm until his grandfather, Luther Belden, grew it into a large-scale sheep farm in the 1950s.

Luther's daughter, Mary, met Gordon Williams at a square dance and the two were married in 1959. After studying dairy farming at California Polytechnic State University in the early 1960s, Gordon was looking for land to start his own farm. Mary's father passed his land on to him, and Gordon began milking 42 cows in 1964. He phased out the sheep and some tobacco crops, and eventually expanded." From.
