It used to be that the farmer worked the soil. Now, global agribusiness works the farmer. Once the backbone of the economy; the family farm has become more of a novelty than an important food resource. Small farmers simply can’t compete with large corporate farms that dominate domestic agriculture. Corporate interests set crop prices, manipulate the market, secure more than their fair share of the buying contracts and pay less than wholesale prices to cover operational costs. For the small farmers that remain, the only hope is to sell locally and try to grow more crops per acre. Fortunately, there is a growing “buy local” trend that simply didn’t exist 20 years ago. More and more people want to buy the freshest, best tasting produce possible. They want to eat food where it is grown, right from the farm.
A new farm technology significantly increases production per acre so the small farmer can earn a “big farm” income on a small piece of land. One acre of Little Crop Circles match the production of a much larger 5 acre farm. This makes profitable farming possible in any communiy including vacant land in large urban centers.
Help us help small farmers compete with large agribusiness and save the American farm.
