The Slow and Agonizing Death of Family Farming #5

Ian Blum

Whether through bank foreclosure, a season of terrible drought, a decade of poor yields, or an inability to compete with bigger, better funded, public corporations, many families eventually had to abandon a way of life that had sustained their ancestors for generations. It is a sad inevitability that when large companies start moving in next door the people who really suffer are the hardest working, the most stubborn, those not willing to admit defeat at the hands of a faceless machine. All good things must come to an end, we must stand aside for progress lest we get caught up in the all consuming wake that follows.
