I'm looking to build a list of reasons to agree or disagree... This is all I have so far: Please help!

Jonamac apple farm is the perfict farm-tourism destination outside Chicago +4.5

Background, Context, and Assumptions

Jonamac apple farm is a farm-tourism destination outside Chicago. It is located at 19412 Shabbona Rd Malta, IL 60150. Their phone number is (815) 825-2158.

Best reasons to agree: +3
  1. Its good for kids to see farms. Kids should learn the science of producing food. It is good for all of us to try to produce food.
  2. Joanamac is is a good farm. 
    1. They have a: 
      1. petting zoo with mules, sheep, chickens, and a Lama
      2. apple picking, with a lot of different apple types
      3. pumpkin canon, 
      4. a big thing like a trampoline. 
      5. old-timy-machines
      6. slides
      7. Kids like to play in the corn silo. 
      8. they have an easy corn maze that kids can handle. They have a harder corn maze for adults.
      9. they have a place where you can buy food
      10. they have live music playing
      11. they often have farm equipment on display
  3. Joanamac is close to Chicago. It is 70 miles from Downtown Chicago, and less than that from the suburbs

Best reasons to disagree: -
  1. Jonamac should copy some of the educational stuff from the Lincoln Park Zoo farm display. Jonamac could team up with Illinois Universities to do farm-research or education. They could have signs for stuff. For instance they could say how much corn was a barrel (or bushel?) that day. They could tell you that the corn you let your kids play in won't be wasted because it will be fed to animals, or it was wasted. 
  2. Jonamac could have a place for kite flying. Chicago is almost always windy. They have a lot of open space, and there is usually a crowd. Seems like a good place for kite flying.
  3. Jonamac could be closer to the City. You pass an awful lot of farms on the way to Jonamac. You would think that any of these places could copy them, but get more traffic.
  4. Jonamac could team up with Amish type country knick-knack stuff, to give the whole farm experience. 
  5. They could have a real farmer's market at Jonamac. In the fall it gets enough traffic that they could probably sell more stuff than just apples, and fudge.
