The Elephant in the Room Is Destroying Family Farms, Rural Communities, and Our Ddemocracy

From a story on by Darvin Bentage headlined “The elephant in the room is destroying family farms, rural communities, and our democracy”:

I love farming and have been doing it all my life, but I told my kids not to come back to the farm, because there’s no future in it. That’s the sad truth.

Over the last year on Capitol Hill, there have been multiple hearings and bills and even an executive order to address what is going on out here in rural America, but little to nothing is getting done. For the last three decades, roughly 40 U.S. family cattle operations have gone out of business every day. It’s time to end the talk and campaigning and actually fix the problem.
