thank you for bringing this to mind ...family farming in the US is pretty much over ... only large farms are able to compete ... i am going to have to do some research on the large farms and effects on third world farms to see better what you are talking about ... the picture is heart wrenching ... i take so much for granted ;(

Aloha Phill, powerful stirring words. My husband and I have seen this first hand having spent almost 10 years travelling/working in relief for UNICEF, the confronting small faces like those in your image are real lives. Much mahalo for your passionate offering. Izzy

Good job bringing attention to the demise of family farms both here in the USA & worldwide as your msg suggests. Thought-provoking . . . I'm glad I can buy from a farmer's market! *smile* Fondly, Margie

An issue close to my heart .... thanks for reviewing and your comments :-)
Oh how we think we help. We send old fabric/clothes which stops the development of the local manufacturing chain from farming and growing to packaging, and distribution and sales. Great point made Phil.

Thanks John ... a kind review!
Buy from organisations prepared to help, they exist. Yes, cost that bit more but the difference between living and dying. Not much to ask if you're a human being...

Such a fine write, worthy of far more reviews.

Definitely an topic that needs more attention and discussion. Huge conglomerate companies like Monsanto in the U.S. using genetically modified crops and mass production are forcing farmers out of business as well.
