USA Today has a great story about the increase in young people becoming farmers that's worth a click.
My friend Dan Mays bought land in nearby Scarborough, Maine just a couple of years ago and started Frith Farm, a small but growing organic farm that's already offering vegetables and humanely raised meat to its CSA members. Dan went to college with my girlfriend Lindsay and is a proud member of an increasingly large group of people under 30 who are taking to the land and choosing the demanding life of a farmer.
The world needs young farmers.
