    There is a little political jabbing in this, but the main thrust is that farming as a way of life in America is threatened. Good read.

    The one thing that wasn't mentioned was the price of land. For the many young bucks who ARE willing to work hard enough to farm, there is no way to afford the land needed.

    Realestate people want the property for housing or business so they can make money. At least that's what I'm seeing in some places. I guess we will start starving to death before the value of a farmer is realized.
