Darned interesting video, and it says on the top he moved to Alaska now. Small crop farmers have almost disappeared now, except some of the ones selling locally or grazing cattle. Im lucky to have twice weekly produce auctions here where anyone can sell their stuff. The local stores and even some national chains and fast food joints buy produce by the semi-load there. It takes half a day each time to sell it all. Menonites haul there by the wagon loads, sweet corn, watermelon, tomatoes, you name it. the prices can get pretty high sometimes, but not many chemicals.
Its easier to fight a drought than all that rain with a tree crop as you can always water them. Not as good as rain but it works. So many diseases with wet weather too. Sometimes a hot few days after a heavy rain with burst the fruit too.
