That surprises me some. It seems a little high, but I guess it makes sense if you consider that many people end up changing careers in midlife, so maybe some people are becoming farmers in their 50s. I was in my 40s before I decided to move from the corporate world to farming.
Well, I am interested to know if this is a global statistic? If so, then we could say that most people opt for farming much later in life. Again, it depends on the nature of farming or the size of the farm(s) in question.
