The author comments on the use of the set-aside farmland of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) in Great Britain for food production. He asserts that RSPB farm is evidently very sustainable as a working unit. He cites that it is easy to be sustainable when one is a charity and the livelihood of its employees do not depend completely on the farm. He states that any payment would not be as rewarding as growing an adequate crop on the land.
