If all the farmers would band together and shut off the food supply to the cities and Washington D.C. for a few months I bet most of the problems would disappear pretty quickly. Farmers have the power, they just don't use it.

The NFO (National Farmer's Organization?) tried to unionize farmers in the 1960's. It made headlines, but it didn't have much impact.

Few farms sell directly to consumers. Most farms sell raw inputs that are widely available from so many sources they are considered commodities.

To actually start to control prices you need to get down to eight or fewer suppliers so it's easier to cooperate i.e.:
air lines (still consolidating),
oil companies,
meat packing companies,
and grain companies.

Been tried before with miserable results.
As soon as the price starts to move, your neighbor will take the advantage to sell while you sit on yours. Jimmy Carter proved that with his grain embargo. All the other countries sold while the american farmer sucked the hind teat.
He also gave us double digit inflation, double digit interest rates and double digit unemployment but hey, maybe it was Bush's fault.
