The Age Old and Old Age Issue

The problem here is two fold. We have plenty of young people in our FFA programs who wish to farm when they graduate from high school or college; but the cost of getting started has become prohibitive. Even when they are looking to take over from their parents or relatives. One of the major costs is land and when they have to compete with larger well established operations for acres. On the other hand we have a farming population whose average age is approaching the mid-60’s. How do we get this land into the hands of the next generation? This is the problem that must be solved.
