Small Farms are More Productive and Profitable



A 1,000 acre U.S. corporate farm growing genetically engineered crops nets an average of $39 an acre.

In contrast, a four-acre family farm nets, on average, $1,400 per acre.

Small organic farms are proving to be even more profitable. With oil prices on the rise, growing food without petroleum-based pesticides/fertilizers, and delivering that food to local markets will quickly prove to be the most affordable food available.
