Half of the nation's farmers are slated to retire within the next ten years. Now more than ever, we need young people to take up the task of growing our nation's food and agricultural products. However, there are many barriers standing in the way: a generation in debt; astronomical start-up costs; legislation favoring corporate farms; cost of land; etc.
The National Young Farmers' Coalition works to rip down the barriers keeping young folks out of farming. For just $20 you can help.
