As we now know, large scale industrialized farming isn’t good for the land, species, and people. While it does provide for a large quantity of foodstuffs, most of those foodstuffs are not good for the human body and mind.
In République Française, I’ve visited farming near Chalon-sur-Saone and local markets that provided foodstuffs. Human families ran the farms, market stalls, and support services. All the foodstuffs are of high quality and organic.
In Barnard, Vermont, United States I stayed with families that farmed pigs, cows and corn and vegetables.
Of course, farming is hard work. Most humans are allergic to hard work. Just read Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. This is unfortunate. However, organic farming should be strongly supported by educated society for it’s contribution to the quality of life. The better the community and national support for agriculture, the more technological support for the farm is possible, reducing the amount of work required in many cases.
Life is Good.
God Bless America, please.
