In contrast to this I got a call from a farmer in Iowa in the 80's during
the crisis and he said he was broke had six kids no food in the house and 35
cents in the house and he needed help. How could a farmer get in such a
position? There is some value in being self sufficient<a personal opinion>
in terms of a families well being. It is certainly easier on a farm and it
is an advantage of being on a farm. It is part of the life style. It maybe
more difficult to pluck the chickens but there are chickens to pluck.
People are free to make choices whether they want to grow there own food or
not to do it and there are consequences. It is not just growing the food
there are other advantages that take place when this happens.
