Most people picture the ‘family farm’ as a few acres with a cow or two, and some vegetable crops. This just isn’t so. As with all business, over the years, farming has grown and expanded. Remember, when past generations went to the grocery store, for example, it was a small sole proprietorship. Now it’s all large, corporate stores. It’s unfair to criticize the farming industry for keeping up with the rest of the world. Many family farms now consist of thousands of acres, and.hundreds of thousands of dollars in machinery and buildings. In 1991, the government ran a program called Farm Start. They gave money to new, first time farm buyers to help them out. It worked. The statistics prove that. Now, they give $ to Omar Khadr and welfare recipients.
