Agriculture is the noblest profession. It makes society happy, wealthy, healthy, honest, and spiritually advanced for
      a better life after death.  (Light of the Bhāgavata, verse 9)
      A community farm is superior to individual farms due to the following reasons:

            Strength in numbers and access to more capital and resources

            Involves the community in sustainable food production and cow care

            Micro-scale farming is usually not sustainable

            Promotes restoration and enhancement of biodiversity on farm land.

            Demonstrates a cooperative farming system based on community support and spiritual values

            Educates the community about agro-ecology

      What about nutrition for our body? (Quotes by Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada )

      “The animal fat required for the human body can be well derived from cow's milk. Cow's milk is very important for
      human  energy,  and  the  economic  development  of  society  depends  on  sufficient  food  grains,  sufficient  milk,  and
      sufficient transportation  and  distribution  of  these  products”.      Lord  Śrī  Kṛṣṇa,  by  His  personal  example,  taught  us

      the importance of cow protection, which is meant not only for the Indian climate but for all human beings all over
      the universe. “ (Light of the Bhāgavata, verse 27)

       “No society can improve in transcendental knowledge without the guidance of such first-class men, and no brain
      can assimilate the subtle form of knowledge without fine brain tissues. For such important brain tissues we require
      a sufficient quantity of milk and milk preparations”.  (Light of the Bhāgavata, verse 27.)

       “Milk is necessary for the performance of yajña. Sages know how to use milk to elevate human society to the per-
      fection of life”.  (Purport of Srimad-Bhagavatam 8.8.2 )

       “The Lord is the protector of cows and the brahminical culture. A society devoid of cow protection and brahminical
       culture is not under the direct protection of the Lord, just as the prisoners in the jails are not under the protection
       of the king but under the protection of a severe agent of the king. Without cow protection and cultivation of the
       brahminical qualities in human society, at least for a section of the members of society, no human civilization can
       prosper at any length” (Purport of Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.14.34)
