Randy sounds like some progressive cityguy who has bought into all the progressive propaganda. The situation is complex. I know lots of farmers like the one depicted in the superbowl ad. I am acquainted with some corporation farms but they are integrated into local communities and have community support. The bigger question has to do with what is a family farm? An Amish family I knows farms on 200 acres. A friend I know farms 4,000 acres but it is a family enterprize involving sons and other family members. The Amish and other farmers emphasize organic and no GMOs. They sell at local farmer's markets. They get my support. At the same time these farms will not feed the world.
