If this farm "family" is so community oriented, why are they targeting other great farmers in the community and raping their livelihood? They are going behind people's backs and paying outrageous amounts for rent all the while saying they run a reputable operation. Union County farmers are known across the state for their sense of pride and professionalism, but the White's have blown that out of the water. They seem to gobble up any land they can get their hands on, but have to ask for help to get their crop in and out.

Hey 'back home' above, I wish I had a tractor, a big ol' tractor! I'd put all kinds of stickers on its rear end. Why not?

Hey 'ftw' above, I don't know much about the farm family you wrote about, but I'm thinking that you sound jealous cause maybe they are making more money than you are. Be careful what you say and think, cause Karma is always a bitch.

It isn't about money or jealousy, it's about treating people with respect that you live in the same county with. There is enough land to go around if people don't get greedy, and as far as karma goes if you live right and trust in the Lord, Karma don't stand a chance.

'ftw', I'm no farm advisor and don't know much about the business other than what I see. Looks like farmers are doing pretty good these days, better than most folks around here. I wished I owned some farm land about now. On the other hand, it sounds like you think that sharing the wealth is a good thing. I'm not real sure about that. If I am a business man and own a hamburger joint in UC and sell more burgers than the other hamburger joints sell locally, then I'm not about to slow down selling my burgers just so the other burger joints make more profit. That's not disrespectful or even greedy, that's just good business.

A f burger and a piece of land have nothing to do with one another. One is a job and one is a lifestyle. And what these boys do is ridiculous. Can't do anything without them running everything up. They keep this up they'll go broke and it'll be their own fault.

Nicest people you'll ever meet, do anything for you. Always on your level never act better than anyone. It ain't about taking anyone's lively hood it's about making their own. Smart farmers, hard workers, now if you would come behind these fake screen names and go talk to any of the White boys, you'll learn.

I agree with everything you wrote; these are super good people. These are the kind of people who always pay their bills on time, do not stiff you on money they owe you, keep their word, and who will pitch in and help out if you tell them you need help. You don't see this family mentioned in the court records cause they are not drunks or druggies, thieves, trouble makers, or deadbeats. Yes, they are very good farmers and they are very smart business people. There is not one thing wrong with that. There are several families in Union County who are like that, and Union County is far richer for having those type folks.

On the other hand, there seems to be one person or farmer who unfortunately is green with jealousy. There is not much we can do about folks who envy others, but it is a cheap trick for those jealous folks to get on Topix and post their personal opinions that cannot be documented with a written paper trail of factual evidence. Hearsay is cheap; hearsay is low-class gossip and Jerry Springer-type drama. Hearsay ultimately can be construed to be defamation of character. Maybe this jealous person feels better cause they vented publicly on Topix, but unrecognized envy is like an undiagnosed cancer-it keeps on growing and growing until it finally eats you alive. That is a sad way to live and even sadder way to die.

As far as the accusation of gobbling up the land and being greedy, well the last time most of us checked the Commonwealth of KY's statutes, there was absolutely no mention of any land person, farmer, or land developer being mandated by the Commonwealth to share the available land with his neighbors or to enter into any agreement of price fixing. The market determines the price on land, on houses, on job salaries, etc. Live with it and deal with it. Or, if dealing with the free market concept bothers you, then there are several countries who employ Socialism or, better yet, Communism. Try those countries out if you think Union County has greedy farmers or you think farmers collectively should share the wealth.

Please explain your post. It is unclear what you intended to convey. When you say 'took another 1500 acres away', what does that mean? Are you suggesting or implying that White Farms did something illegal, something that would cause you or other farmers to file a lawsuit, was there a breach of contract? Please explain.

More documented evidence is required. Hurt feelings and jealousy do not qualify as documentation of hard evidence.
