The Next Generation
I fear for the up and coming generation of farmers that won't have the same base of people to fill the gaps on their operation. It seems like today's society is filled with entitlement without wanting to work. Society "owes" them.
This morning my wife, Rhonda, was on the computer and came across a website http://www.ilovefarmers.org/ . She was so excited about an organization about farming created by young people that I became infected.
Those involved are mainly based in California, the most productive ag land in the world. I applauded these young agriculturists for their enthusiasm and determination to not only take on the challenges of being in agriculture, but to do it in a state that has a history of cruelty towards this crucial industry.
