We see and hear the question all the time: “I want to be a farmer, but I have no money, no acreage, no tractor, and no experience. How do I start?” Very few other industries are as attractive to newcomers, and as difficult to break into, as production agriculture. And even though the number of farms is decreasing, we still need young people to be interested in coming into...or back to...the farm life. Join Larry Reichenberger and Dean Houghton, field editors for John Deere's The Furrow and Homestead magazines, for a discussion on what it takes to be a farmer.
