    Some company's / businesses are getting grants that supposedly helps farmers and then after a certain time they can quit the deals and keep the grant money. I won't say the names but one was a packing house that received grants so that farmers could have USDA inspected meat and be able to sell that meat to the public. They quit accepting livestock for slaughter from farmers and have went to processing their own meats.
    Hemp processor may go belly up and received grant.

    There is a couple here that actually do pretty good.
    We use to sell a lot of excess vegetables to grocery stores. Corn and beans mostly but most stores don’t do business with small farmers now..
    We were tobacco farmers too for a long time..only one in our county

    You are correct. With most of the big farmers I know and I know several, it was passed down.

    My neighborhood took an economic hit last year when the national guard flew in helicopters and harvested all of the hemp.
