Factory or Family?
I have to admit, when we started farming, I didn’t realize that people considered our farm a “factory farm.” To me, it was (and still is) a family farm.
Yes, our buildings are large.
Yes, we have a lot of livestock.
Yes, we take advantage of the latest technology to ensure that our birds are comfortable and healthy.
Yes, the family farm looks different than it did 50 years ago.
But 98% of American farms are still family owned.
And really, do we look like a factory?
