History

The practice of agriculture first began around 8000 BC in the Fertile Crescent of Mesopotamia

The development of farming and farms was an important component in establishing towns. Once people have moved from hunting and/or gathering and from simple horticulture to active farming, social arrangements of roads, distribution, collection, and marketing can evolve. With the exception of plantations and colonial farms, farm sizes tend to be small in newly settled lands and expand as transportation and markets become sophisticated.
