Family Farming

Our next topic is the significance of being family owned. Families have been the cornerstone of civilization since the beginning of time. It is strong families that bind our society together. Hence the saying "blood is thicker that water." Without this most important of organizations, we would be in a bad way.

Family farms are disappearing quickly in our country. Sustainable Table has a good article about this, to which I have provided a link if you click on the title of this post. Globalization and corporate competition are making it increasing hard for family farms to be economically viable. As consumers, you can do make a difference by voting for the local family farm with your food dollars! Without the support of consumers, our nations small family farms will be replaced by corporate owned farms. This is frightening to think about, considering where this has gotten us already!!
