Fight for a farm bill that invests in our future.
The average age of farmers in the U.S. is approaching 60 years old and roughly ⅔ of U.S. farmland is expected to transition and need a new farmer as this older generation retires. The future of our food system depends on supporting the next generation of farmers and ranchers.
The farm bill is our greatest opportunity to address the barriers young people face in launching careers in agriculture. Congress is working now to pass a farm bill before the current bill expires on September 30th - they need to hear from their constituents (YOU!) today to encourage them to support young farmers.
