Re: We're all getting old...but too old?

Shaggy, I agree with you 100%. I work 12 hour shifts in a warehouse. In the winter months Ill go 3 days without seeing the light of day. I look at farming like it is the ultimate business challenge, and its a labor of love. Most farms in my area seem to be in a generational shift. The older farmers are getting too old or sick to continue running the farm on their own. If no younger generation is there to take on the farm, the large operations simply absorb the older farmers farm, and that family farm is nothing but a memory.
