English family leaves homeland behind to farm in Stuart, Va.

STUART, Va. — Some stories never seem to die.

For centuries, people have been crossing the Atlantic from England in the hopes of a better life. David and Liisa Wallace were no different. Well, actually, they are – a little.

The Wallaces had a nice, comfortable life on the south coast of England, but they wanted more. So they sold most of what they owned but kept the most valuable things, their 8-week-old twin boys, and headed for America.

They wanted to build something that would last not only until their boys were old enough to take over but would last well beyond their boys’ grandchildren.

In this edition of the Buckley Report, meet the family that left everything behind to operate Mulberry Farm in southern Virginia.
