Many of my Facebook friends are virtual farmers on FarmVille but I wonder how many of them would choose to run a real agricultural operation. The MyFarm project offers 10,000 subscribers the opportunity to participate in the running of a real-life working farm in Cambridgeshire, U.K. for £30 per year. The Wimpole Estate, owned by England's National Trust, currently receives 250,000 visitors per year and has a rich farming history going back centuries. Farmer subscribers will vote on how the farm is run and get to choose crops, livestock, facilities investments, and machinery. It is hoped that the project will raise awareness about how agriculture works.
