Beginning Farmers and Ranchers
The landscape of farm ownership is changing.
While the number of farms in the U.S. continues to decrease, the average farm size is increasing. This, along with growing farm ownership by farmers over age 55, makes it challenging for entry level farmers to get a foothold with their new operations.
Serving farmers and area agri-businesses is our top priority, and that includes the newest and youngest farmers as well as established operators.
