The New York Times published a wonderful story about a newer, younger generation of farmers that are starting to change the American landscape. There are now younger farmers, spurred on by the local food movement, that have jumped into farming and trying to make this their livelihood. The are also facing a lot of difficulties too. It is hard to find and buy land and equipment. They also need to learn the basics of farming, which, as you can guess, is not easy. While the article focuses on the Eugene, Oregon, you can see how this is being repeated across the country and our area. A really good read if you want to learn a little about what new farmers are facing.
