*sigh*. Is it against some unspoken farmer code of ethics to break up farm ground and sell it off in lots for a subdivision? I'm trying to work through my feelings of resentment here, and am wondering how justified they are.
This is happening to my family. The farmer who owns the ground behind us is doing this. They have offered for years to buy the ground behind ours. He assured them he had no plans of selling it.
