While I like the concept of this, I'm afraid it isn't feasible anymore. The number of small farms dwindles every year, and with more and more population to feed, mass production seems to be the only way. Don't get me wrong, I love our local farmers markets and the country butcher and buy as much there as I can on a regular basis. I like knowing that the meat hasn't been injected with dyes and preservatives, and that my veggies don't sit in some warehouse for weeks before hitting my table. Farming on a small scale is expensive and hard. I know I couldn't do it.

This is an incredible business opportunity for the small farmer.
