#Farming Friday 38: What is a Family Farm?

ID-10031968

If we heard that the fifth generation of a family was running a farm , most of us would describe it as a “family farm”. But times have changed with each generation and if the appropriate use of technology helps better functioning of the farm, should we stop calling it a family farm and label it “factory farm” instead? Tagging things we don’t know much about is easy but reading  about this account from a dairy farmer gives us a an insight into why these tags are often far from reality.
