The unpaid intern who wrote this story seems to think that a farming operation with a gross market value of two million dollars is a "big business." This in a climate where the average Toronto house price is over a million.
Where a 50 acre hobby farm commands a million.
Family farms with a 70 cow herd are "millionaire farming companies."
(By the way, this is exactly the kind of story that will kill Big Steve in Conservative-voting farm country, so thanks for that.)
And they're making it rich on the backs of the poorest of the poor, who don't realize that every variety store in the land offers a carton of milk for less than the price of an energy drink!

It's the egregious bullshit that you insist on publishing and insulting your readers with.
