Living in a simi-rual area, but still just an hour commute to NYC, we see the small farms vanishing replaced by McMansions, hobby farms, and large acre housing. Meeting the elderly individuals whose families ran these small farms turned track housing a person can't help but be somewhat saddened by the loss, they loved their farms and their life's work. We love them for their work and for many years enjoyed the fruit of their labor.
Living in this area it is more obvious and in a person's face that these farms are just gone, dead.... large run down barns litter the country side tossed aside un-needed in a stark contrast to new McMansions. These types of family farms once the food suppliers to the world have been replaced.... gone forever, the large corporate farm is here to stay. While this is happening here largely due to our proximity to the city it is occurring throughout the world due to a real money maker, the new and better Corporate farm?
