RaiderH8R does have some valid points, but his stereotype isn't justified.
My Uncle is a farmer in eastern Colorado. Very hard worker. Loves to farm. But, he never produces! His crops die every single year, and he alone makes four times what my family makes in subsidy checks alone. He's not a bad guy, and he's still a hard worker, but in reality farming is a no-risk business nowadays that pays WAY more than 95% of the jobs out there.
