Stifled by corporate America, the young turn to farming
While fresh demographic information on U.S. farmers won't be available until after the next agricultural census is done next year, there are signs more people in their 20s and 30s are going into farming: Enrollment in university agriculture programs has increased, as has interest in farmer-training programs.

The young entrepreneurs typically cite two reasons for going into farming: Many find the corporate world stifling and see no point in sticking it out when there's little job security; and demand for locally grown and organic foods has been strong enough that even in the downturn they feel confident they can sell their products. ...

Jim, try talking to a subject matter expert, like an organic farmer, before accusing strangers of greed w/o evidence. Organic food is costly because FDA certification is expensive & yield is lower. Anyone living in farm state could find this out easily.

And I've never heard one yet cite religious scruples as a motive. Certified Kosher food, for instance, often has additives in it, like MSG & preservatives; organic principles have nothing to do with it.

No, they wouldn't jpw! Notice I took the quote for the Kentucky Extension Service News Letter, young people there probably have less inhibition to growing barley, (burp ), race horses, or tobacco. Alright they may not grow marijuana.

There is a growing movement towards organic farming, but it has a lot more to do with a high regard for the almighty dollar than for any supposed religious notions about food.

Jim, you may think "farmers should only grow tobacco and marijuana", but the young people returning to farming would find that a bit repulsive, to be honest.

Yes, JPW, if farmers should only grow tobacco and marijuana that can be shown to be uncontaminated with pesticides and unnatural genetically engineering.
Kenny Burdine, Alison Davis, and Greg Halich Editors wrote:
U.S. farm real estate values reached a historical high during 2007, and started to decline during 2008. According to information released by USDA in August, the value of farmland and buildings on farms across the US averaged $2,100 per acre on January 1, 2009. This $2,100 value is 3.2 percent ($70/Ac) less than the record high of $2,170 set last year. The declines were widespread. Crop land values went down by $100 per acre (4.0 percent) to $2,650 per acre. Pasture land declined less, dropping $20 per acre (1.8 percent) to $ 1070 per acre.
from, ECONOMIC AND POLICY UPDATE 10/19/2009 I think the value farm land has continued to rise again, the number of people increases faster than the number of fertile acres.

there is honor and wisdom in this endeavor. support free market, local economies, and sane practices on animals that lead to healthier foods and less chemical additives. end the gmo kabbal leading to disease. tithing was always done in food---and seeds are God's currency.
