Text reads, “America loses one farm every 30 minutes due largely to intensifying corporate takeover of our food supply. Major agribusiness corporations exercise increasing control over what we eat, how it is made, how much it costs, who produces it, and who profits from it. The increasingly uneven balance of power between individual farmers and global firms, such as Cargill and ConAgra, leave individual farmers without the power to negotiate, accepting almost any contractual term and reduced payments in hopes to insure the survival of their farm. While farmers are losing their bargaining power and working for less, farms are closing at an alarming rate, over 20,000 farms go under each year, taking with them the social fabric of small towns and farming communities. more info : factoryfarm.org”
