Farmers struggled with low prices all through the 1920s, but after 1929 things began to be hard for city workers as well. After the stock market crash, many businesses started to close or to lay off workers. Many families did not have money to buy things, and consumer demand for manufactured goods fell off. Fewer families were buying new cars or household appliances. People learned to do without new clothing. Many families could not pay their rent. Some young men left home by jumping on railroad cars in search of any job they could get. Some wondered if the United States was heading for a revolution.
In some ways farmers were better off than city and town dwellers. Farmers could produce much of their own food while city residents could not. Almost all farm families raised large gardens with vegetables and canned fruit from their orchards. They had milk and cream from their dairy cattle. Chickens supplied meat and eggs. They bought flour and sugar in 50-pound sacks and baked their own bread. In some families the farm wife made clothing out of the cloth from flour and feed sacks. They learned how to get by with very little money. But they had to pay their taxes and debts to the bank in cash. These were tough times on the farms.
The Federal government passed a bill to help the farmers. Surplus was the problem; farmers were producing too much and driving down the price. The government passed the Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA) of 1933 which set limits on the size of the crops and herds farmers could produce. Those farmers that agreed to limit production were paid a subsidy. Most farmers signed up eagerly and soon government checks were flowing into rural mail boxes where the money could help pay bank debts or tax payments.
Town families could not produce their own food. Many city dwellers often went hungry. Sometimes there were soup kitchens in larger cities that provided free meals to the poor. Winters were an especially hard time since many families had no money to buy coal to heat their houses.

Kipling visited Chicago just as new industrial modes of production revolutionized the United States. The rise of cities, the evolution of American immigration, the transformation of American labor, the further making of a mass culture, the creation of great concentrated wealth, the growth of vast city slums, the conquest of the West, the emergence of a middle class, the problem of poverty, the triumph of big business, widening inequalities, battles between capital and labor, the final destruction of independent farming, breakthrough technologies, environmental destruction: industrialization created a new America.
By the turn of the twentieth century, new immigrant groups such as Italians, Poles, and Eastern European Jews made up a larger percentage of arrivals than the Irish and Germans. The specific reasons that immigrants left their particular countries and the reasons they came to the United States (what historians call push and pull factors) varied. For example, a young husband and wife living in Sweden in the 1880s and unable to purchase farmland might read an advertisement for inexpensive land in the American Midwest and immigrate to the United States to begin a new life. A young Italian man might simply hope to labor in a steel factory long enough to save up enough money to return home and purchase land for a family. A Russian Jewish family persecuted in European pogroms might look to the United States as a sanctuary. Or perhaps a Japanese migrant might hear of fertile farming land on the West Coast and choose to sail for California. But if many factors pushed people away from their home countries, by far the most important factor drawing immigrants was economics. Immigrants came to the United States looking for work.
The Banana Farm is a money-generating tower, and is the only tower (besides Special Agents and Powers) that has nothing to do with actually popping Bloons. This tower made its debut in BTD4. Banana Farms generate income every round, the amount depending on its upgrades. In BTD4, Banana Farms generate money automatically at the end of each round, while in BTD5 onwards most Banana Farms generate money which can be redeemed via collectable bananas. It is generally a good idea to buy Banana Farms early in the game, as it will result in a bigger payoff, but do not get carried away as without strong enough defense you may lose.
The Banana Farm makes a return in Bloons TD 5. Instead of automatically producing income at the end of each round, the Banana Farm produces bananas that can be picked up for bonus income. It also gains an upgrade that converts the Banana Farm into a Monkey Bank, extrapolating any generated cash stored in the Bank until its maximum capacity, and can be manually withdrawn at any time. At base, the Banana Farm generates 4 bananas each worth $20. In all Mobile versions, it creates half the number of bananas, rounded up, each worth double the amount at $40 each.
The majority of the Banana Farm has been overwhelmingly reworked in Bloons TD 6, modifying the cost values and income values of many of its money-generating capabilities throughout. In addition to this is the option to upgrade the Farm into an automatically generating income source, similar to the BTD4 Farm.
Monkey Farmer returns as a legendary ally in Bloons Adventure Time TD. Unlike all other variants of Monkey Farmer, the farmer can reach collectables across any range and costs in-game money instead of a secondary currency. To unlock Monkey Farmer, a lucky Legendary Wish Orb must be opened and the Monkey Farmer collected. Alternatively, the farmer can be purchased for $2.99 USD.
Banana Farmers are added in Update 1.8. Instead of buying one by one, you can get your first pack of 5 for free, 20 of them for 700 Monkey Money, or 50 of them for 1,500 Monkey money. It doesn't only pick up bananas in his range, it can collect ALL of the bananas on the screen so you can just place one banana farmer, and it collects everything like Bananas, Crates, Full bloon traps, and bananas from Obyn's wall of trees!
The general strategy for Monkey Farmer in any game the farmer appears in is for convenience of picking up collectable income. For less hassles with collecting collectable income, Monkey Farmer makes picking up of any collectable income source become automatic, provided the farmer can reach the collectables.
On average, State Farm offers one of the biggest bundle discounts at 25% and annual premium of $2,534 after discounts.

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is the first of the long-standing series to come to PC. It follows the formula that those who have played other farming town simulations will recognize: the protagonist arrives as a newcomer to a floundering town and by running a successful farm and making friends is able to breathe life back into the community.
There are several different definitions of a \"farm\" depending on who the owner(s) will be interacting with.To be considered a farm for the Alberta Farm Fuel benefit (and be eligible to use marked or \"purple\" fuel) the farm business must have $10,000 or more of gross annual farm production. This $10,000 minimum production threshold is also required for most other provincial and federal-provincial farm programs.For the municipality they will need to have the property in agricultural production for it to be taxed at the farm property tax rate. If the property is assessed in a different class, for example, country residential the annual tax bill will be higher. More information on property taxes can be obtained for your county or municipal district office.For income tax purposes the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) you are a farmer if you claim income from farming activity. To be considered a full-time farmer however the farm income will be compared to any off-farm income - if the off-farm income is higher the individual will only be eligible to only claim part of any farming losses against their other income. In addition the farm business must show a potential for profitability.For the Farm Census completed by Statistics Canada, a census farm is defined as an agricultural operation tha
