    Question "It's just another section they have to go to"

    Hello,

    The following is from a news story about the steep price rise of American farmland.

    "You have mega farmers that have no sense of the history of the land and little care for it," said David W. Baker, a farm transition specialist at Iowa State University Extension. "It's just another section they have to go to."

    What is the meaning of 'section' here? Does it mean another part of the farm, or another farm?

    Thank you

    Yes, a part of the mega-farm. It was at one time the entirely of someone's farm, but it is now just one part of a larger mega-farm.
