Keeping Farmers on the Land
The ownership of 40 percent of America’s agricultural land will be in transition within the next 15 years.
Both family farmers and the land they steward are at risk. Meanwhile, would-be farmers often can't afford to enter the field. To steward farmland and ranchland well requires knowing it well. We need many eyes on the ground and many hands in the dirt. But farming is a tough job. Farmers and ranchers operate on very slim margins and are often only one hailstorm or dry spell or medical bill away from ruin.
