At McCormick FarmAgriculture has changed in the Shenandoah Valley since McCormick's day. Once known as the "breadbasket of the Confederacy" because of the amount of wheat grown here, the Valley grows very few small grains today. Much of the grain production moved to the flat prairies of the mid-west once the invention of the reaper made harvesting easier. Although some row crops are still grown, the primary use of these fields is now livestock pasture.
