Oh, Lord. Now farms are a novelty. These people aren't farmers. They're selling eggs for $5 a dozen so people will think they taste better because they're expensive.
"Be Love Farm?"
I noticed Wally Brazelton's farm isn't on the tour. Guess it's because he's not selling soaps an candles and holding classes.

If these small family hobbie farms didn't rip off visitors, they would go belly up. Only the larger corporate farms and ranches will survive. Then, there is the even cheaper imported food from Chilie, Argentina & Brazil that has the potential to wipe U.S. agriculture off the map.
Meanwhile, the easily gullible and utterly stupid will continue to visit Old McDonald's Farm. The "local food" movement is just another scam designed to separate fools from their money. Ask yourself this - exactly where was that produce from the local farmers markets grown. The answer will make you angry.

Rip off? Novelty? I smell envy, I smell jealousy. Both of you only WISH you had the energy and brains to run a farm.
