That's what I mean though. You can have a farm that supplies adjuncts, fruits, etc no problem. But 'farm brewery' implies a brewery that grows the majority of its ingredients - something that's fairly difficult in reality. Though, in reality, many small wineries also grow only a portion of their grapes.
Lots of states help ag businesses out, though I think a state supporting farm breweries is sort of dumb given that you'd need to malt any grain you grow and few areas are great for hops. It doesn't seem really reasonable. And I'd rather see them just support small breweries.
You can use almost any raw grain as an adjunct. That's the epitome of farmhouse brewing!
