Waste of Taxpayers money.

Each Farm should be looked at to determine where extra income is coming from before subsidies are given.

In today's budget deficit ways, the FAT should be removed!

Right...let's not help out the farms. Let's let them be developed into homes.

Brilliant. I like local products.

You're an idiot. The equation is simple: No farms; No food! Maybe all you want to eat is genetically engineered food!

I agree...$7000 here $20,000 there when the farmers in a lot of cases are making money with other ventures, this is not right, this is PORK FAT and needs to be reduced and/or eliminated.

There is a lot of PORK out there that can be reduced. Town worker's benefits would be one, worthless positions like the Community Developer, Raises agreed upon 2-3 years ago, Pensions and other Town jobs is another!

When's the last time you drove by a "rich" looking farm?! Read more on the plight of the farmer in the US. See what Gov't imposed caps on milk prices have done to their level of profitability. I believe the article focused on a dairy/goat farmer who sells dairy products and now goat milk based commodities! "Get Real" seems to have an axe to grind about a Town Planner. Focus!
