What is a producing farm? How does it differ and what are its advantages over the appropriating economy? Make a comparison table.

A producing economy is an economy where the main source of human life is domestic animals and cultivated plants. An appropriating economy is an economy with a predominant economic role of hunting, gathering and partly fishing, which corresponds to the most ancient stage of the economic and cultural history of mankind.
