as a young boy my dad was a hired hand on a 350acre farm dad got four hogs a year and beef. he got 125.oo week. we rasied chickens and had big garden.what more could you ask for the boss had 6 kids they raised on same farm.when i got older i also worked field after school and on week ends I will never forget my first paycheck 15 dollors Igot it all in ones boy was i it is all big farms and want to get bigger I guess its like walmart. someday all land will be taken by factory farms what a shame how can a young family ever start the american dream of farming Is it lost for ever. the values and upbring on a farm I would not change for any thing.I no its hard for small farmer to make it now days most have to take second jobs to make ends meet to them i say bless you and hang in there.mabe all land hogs will go bankruped.

it used to be that the family farm could support two famlies the father and the son's family who would take over the farm.. we are still hanging in there, it's not easy being the little guy

Same type situation for me. I remember buying my first Daisy BB gun with earned money. It cost $3.95. Thought I was rich. Very few are teaching their children how to make a living should the bottom fall out again. Most think groceries are produced in the stock room at the grocery stores.
