Up until the mid 1960's the prisoners at the workhouse on Gettysburg (now shut down) supported themselves. It was a working farm and every prisoner had a job to do to raise food for themselves and the prisoners at the City Jail.
That's why there is so much land there....it was once farmland. The state and local government need to go back to this as the prisoners did not feel it was cruel and inhumane punishment to do farm labor. The only ones that opposed it were the civil right's activists and politicians during the 1960's. It was a self-supporting system and it worked.
