FAMILY FARM
There will be fewer family farms, Family farms are efficient so they will always be around, farms will keep getting bigger, I do not see that as a bad thing because food is getting cheaper due to larger more efficient farms.
CHANGES IN FARMING METHODS
Important for people to understand how farms grow, understand that farms are a big part of our lives, " In my life time most of the people were farmers and now there are only 2 or 3 percent farming", People are now able to do other things because everyone does not have to make food, "The last 70 years have had more change than the whole history of the world", Changes to come will be even greater, " I have gone to the horse and buggy age to great big tractors."
