Why is no farmer as famous as Tom Cruise?

I have a lot of affection/appreciation for moviemakers, actors, directors, crew. I really value movies and think they're important. However, I think food is even more important because you will live without movies, but without food you will die. Therefore, I wonder, why is no farmer as famous as Tom Cruise?

    Mar 14 2013: Hi Greg, Can you imagine what farming is going to be in the future? Are we going to need farms?

      Mar 16 2013: I'm not an expert. I live in a suburb of L.A. called Glendale. What I see here is movement towards more organic, and also towards "urban farming," where people are getting plots in a communal garden and growing some of their own produce. So I'd see those changes.

      Why do you ask, John? How could we ever not need farms?
