I think you may have misunderstood my comment. I know that the "family farm" is in decline and larger farms are taking over the field; however, agriculture is so heavily regulated that we can hardly call the forces within it "agribusiness".
It's like calling fascism capitalist, despite the fact that the state determines what will be produced and at what quantity.

Can you support that statement? I think the American public can almost intuitively tell you that the model of the "family farm" is in decline. Shit, in 1993 the US census declared that it was no longer worthwhile to compile farm residency statistics, as the population was so small as to be inconsequential.
Tell me- where does food come from, then?
