What is that defined as? I grow herbs in my backyard. Does that count?

No. I meant it as that's is what you do for living and main income for yourself/family!

No, but I've been known to plow a field or two 😎

My family has a farm, but it's not the stereotypical crop farm, they raise cattle.

Grew up in a farm, worked for my Uncle on his in high school. Haven't worked on a farm in 25 years. Really miss it, and probably my biggest regret in life is not going into farming.

No, I'm a city boy. But I have farming in my blood. All of my fathers family have been farmers for generations, including today.

1083 acres isn't big? What size would be considered a big farm nowadays?

Most farmers now farm several thousand acres, sometimes scattered across several counties.

I remember in the late 80's my Uncle talking about an article that was talking about small farmers that only farmed 5000-6000 acres. He farmed less than 1000 and was wondering where that left him.

Ours is considered very small.. Almost a hobby farm. But it is out homestead and has been our lol farm since before I was born...we combine with my uncle and a cousin and make 'Bauer farms' and between the 3 families there are thousands of acres

My grandparents were and I grew up there helping. My career keeps me from doing that now.

No. I have met many that provide food to the food co-op though. I am grateful that they do what they do.
