Norm: WAH! WAH! WAH! WAH! Definition to MANUFACTORY from Wikipedia: a manufacturing PLANT. A PLANT indeed manufactures - one being products we need or desire, another oxygen AND foods we consume.

No. Factory is short for manufactory. Factory also evolved independently from a place where a factor, or business representative, was located as in Moose Factory, Ontario. Plant, applied to manufacturing, derived from the verb plant, not the noun. But farming is no longer farming and no longer a way of life. It is industry, but that doesn't make even big farms factories except metaphorically. And,yes, you will find a lot more bearing than baring on the farm. Sloppy writing; sloppy thinking.
