Now that I'm getting older, I can let stupid things go. Giving me a lawn job is forgivable. Throwing spark plugs through every window of my car is not.

Depends on the size of the farm and what not. This isn't the 1950's. With technology now a days, its not 14 hours a day of work. Hell, the farmer up the road showed me his new rig drives itself off GPS and is more accurate then if he drives it. He also works a full time job for the city and tends to the farm in between. Once planted, the corn grows itself. Just sayin...

Hope you learned a lesson. Private property is private and that could have ruined your holidays.

You can call the cops and say he took your info at gun point and he'll have pictures of your info on his camera/phone. Goes both ways.

Just quoting the dumbest thing I've heard today. Quite possibly this year.

That's exactly how it is for many of the farms around here. Six figure incomes, working 6 months a year.

Uneducated people think they know everything about everything. If they took as much time to do research as they take to think of a witty remark, they may actually learn something. Glad someone else knows people don't still plant corn with mules pulling plows and hand planting seeds.

The person above who said my post about the farmer at this point having no realistic legal actions he could take was stupid. Anyone can sue anyone civilly. I can sue the OP civilly and say he tore up my field. It means nothing. I was stating if the kid and his friend keep their mouth shut then they are good to go.

Around here its 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, 50 weeks a year to keep any operation in the black. I know this because its my job to know this.

Didn't realize there was that much agriculture out in Cali. I assume its much like Florida's citrus where its 500,000 acres of orange trees which would account for so much time and work. Different when compared to 60 acres of corn.

Agriculture is the number one source of income for the 8th largest economy in the world. Our growing seasons allow for a myriad of crops to be grown and we use the same acreage to yield 3 rotations of different crops throughout the year. We have seasonal or hard's but even in the winter, they need tending. I know that citrus needs year round assistance as well so don't cut the farmers short. Even the six figure farmers worked their way to that point. Ups and downs in agriculture are world changing events and its mostly based on hard work and praying for favorable weather.

I can't say I honestly know anything about Cali's zoning and what they do/don't grow. That's pretty cool they have so much out there. I learned something new. I thought it was a max of 2 rotations a year to not exhaust the soil. Never knew anyone did 3. Good stuff

Yep. Most of the state is set up for agriculture. The Central Valley is set up to grow everything, the coast has a completely different climate and even the sierras is set up for grazing cattle during most of the year. And even the desert grows a lot of food!! Yes, the desert.

Edit: My phone shut off mid correction.

The farmers here can't work in the winter - frozen ground and too much snow. They work hard during the growing season certainly, but it's not especially labour intensive when most of them are using $500k+ combines that drive themselves.

As well, small operations have pretty much ceased to exist. All the farms are large.
