I would guess that the farm can only support so many people plus the religious leanings of the group there.
They've got way more farmland than they could ever handle with only one or two able-bodied women. I'm betting Hershel's got at least a couple thousand acres which could easily feed a few hundred people.

It's amazing Rick never mentioned that in arguing to stay. Farming without modern equipment sure as hell isn't going to be easy.

And if this show had any decent sort of realism, the baby would more than likely be Shane's. It might seem like it's been a long time since they were together, but I think Rick has only been back with Lori for a little over a week. That's not really enough time for a pregnancy test to be effective.
For anyone who might be curious how the comics handled this:

I think the reason Hershel doesn't want them on the farm is going to be sinister. He's comment about not talking about some of his reasons makes me think that something is up. I don't trust the guy.

I didn't even know about the comic before the show was announced. And since then, I've been avoiding finding out what happens in the comic, to maximize my viewing pleasure. I intend to pick up the comics in one or more volumes after the show is over. (If it's not, or no longer available, in that form by then, screw it.)

Herschel's reasons probably come straight from the comic.

I read on wikipedia what was going on at the farm, and that does seem to be the direction they're going in at this point. I'm curious to see how it's going to play out on the show.

It looked more like he was waterlogged.

Hey, maybe the farm is covered by those little solar powered, low frequency sound pegs that keep gophers out.

Zombie repellent....

He had a pretty big pot belly, I think he was already fat.

That would be hilarious. What a great idea.
