Small Family Farms: The Heart of the Midwest
(Page 3 of 3)
Instead of looking at the negative aspects, let us instead look at the solution. Not to ban large operations, but to support small family farms. So we need to let people know what family farms mean to America. Recognize farming as an important, productive profession so that young people will be encouraged to become directly involved with agriculture. We need to help family farms stay competitive in this changing time. We need more young agricultural entrepreneurs that would be encouraged to continue the family farm through young farmer loan programs. We also need educational tools that would assist them in marketing and financial planning. Small family farms and ranches need our support so that we can help to ensure that there will be family operations in the future. So America’s future generations will have access not only to nutritious, safe, abundant food, but also to the heritage of our heartland.
