Understanding Corporate Farms

I will make no bones about it, I hate corporate farms. The men who run those corporations are no more "farmers" than I am an astronaut. They have totally ruined the farming reputation by introducing chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers and GMOs. They have stripped this fertile land of ours all in the name of farming. They don't farm, they mass produce and like any other mass produced piece of crap, well it is a piece of crap. Too cheap to pay decent labor and produce healthy food for the community, they milk sick half starved cows, cover our food with toxic chemicals and destroy our honeybee population. These men are money hungry uncaring and lying sons of guns. Let's take Dole for instance. Ask Hawaii how they feel about Dole. Dole wanted to exploit Hawaiian pineapple and eventually Hawaii lost their sovereignty as a nation. Folks, if you want healthy food grow your own or buy local from your local small family farms. We almost saw small family farms wiped out in America, but we are a tough breed. Many hung in through those hard years and struggled. Now, those of us that were just little tykes back then are coming back to the land. We have small family farms struggling to survive all over this country and they actually care about your health and your business. You might pay a little more than you would in the grocery store, but then again you may not. You might actually get some produce that is not 90% chemically based. And you might get a chicken butchered at the perfect time without any antibiotics. Oh and the eggs, lets not forget the freshest most delightful tasting eggs money can buy. That is a whole lot better than those month old tasteless things you get in the grocery store. So check out these two spots to find a farm near you. The advantages are you keep your money in your community, you eat healthier, you support local family farms, and you send the corporations that strawberries with arctic fish genes injected in them are not ok with you. Did I mention I hate corporate farms?

Arctic fish genes in strawberries? So they can survive the cold? I don't understand the reason behind this-but then again I don't understand corporate farming either!
