I believe that family farmily is a important, But is a dying or disappearing industrys. There has been a big drop in family farms in the last 7 or 8 years. Especially in Minnesota, Minnesota has lost over 55% of it’s family dariy farms. I believe that family farms help teach kids learn how to work together with their family or other people and teachs them how to be responsable for taking care of animals, crops, and other chores. Because I know it has for me. They are disappearing because of rich developers and cash cropers. And minimal farm can’t stand up for their land or affarid to pass up a deal. And kids of farm owners don’t have intrest in the family farm and it ends up being sold to a cash croper or developer. That way family farms are important in today lifestyle
