Everything stated by our host is true for the large corporate farms and our goverment. In the meantime the family dairy farms in the Northeast are dying because of over regulation, taxes and very low milk prices paid to the farmer. The price paid to the farmer is close to the 1980's price, but at the store it has gone up like everything else. Grain, fuel, seed and parts have gone up greatly. Every week or so I hear of another farm auction in Vermont and another family farm is gone forever. Someday we will regret the loss of this productive farm land locally.
