I was working with a awesome family moving to the Ann Arbor/Saline area. They had been referred by a friend who's husband was hiring thim for a job with his company.
We had looked at a lot of houses, in Saline, Michigan, but nothing seemed quite right. We were driving through a subdivision having just looked at a house.

The Saline Valley Farms, a farm cooperative on nearly 1000 acres, 3½ miles south of town, was begun by Harold S. Gray in 1932. Oral historian James Cameron has written, "(The venture) attracted struggling families during depression years.

Success mushroomed as members developed a store at the farm to sell to the public and used delivery vans to bring fresh produce and canned goods to Detroit and the suburbs. By the mid-1950s, with the death of the cooperative's founder … (15 comments)
