Farming is arguably a business, just like any other. The unique facet of farming is that it contributes “lifeblood” to the economic landscape of the Red River Valley, North Dakota and national economy – providing thousands of jobs and billions in gross annual revenues, as opposed to a golf course that cannot even fill its private membership roster.
