This month we reached out for help, and hired one of the fine local contractors to gravel the driveway.

This is one of those situations when self-reliance falls short. We don't own this much gravel, nor can we produce it through digging the land. Nor do we own machinery capable of hauling, dumping, or grading this much rock.
Another downside: the driveway's earth is soft, as I mentioned above. So these little rocks will gradually sink down into the soil and vanish. After some time (two years, perhaps) we'll have to repeat the process.
