Oh, will you catch hell for posting this Brock?  I'll join you.  I think the industrialization of farming has been both logical, market driven and a huge benefit of providing an enormous variety year round of food.  Anyone who knows me knows I love food---much to my detriment. 

Still I lament the corporatization of farming, where CONgress and the Executive branch has conspired to produce lobbyist inspired rules to kill off the competition, loan programs and estate taxes designed to swallow private farms and fascist subsidies designed to fatten the coffers of major agribusiness while forcing smaller farms to plow under their crops.

Also modern farming combined with modern transport does result frequently is less flavorful food hitting the markets.
