If you thought that playing FarmVille and Harvest Moon were the closest you could get to real farming, consider an interesting idea from farming enthusiast Richard Morris: Why not invite internet users to run a real farm? MyFarm, a promising online farming project, targeted 10,000 online participants with the desire to reconnect with the process of producing food and eventually understand and appreciate various farming dynamics by voting once a month on how the farm — located at the National Trust’s Wimpole Estate — should be run.
