Farming can be a family tradition, but not everyone chooses this path. I grew up on a farm, but I developed a keen interest (after my teenage years) to learn as much as I could and change the food system (certain aspects of the foreign and agriculture policies).
My husband grew up in farming and I'm just learning. So far, I love it. I can't believe how much work it is but it is worth it. I'm going to raise our kids to work alongside us so they hopefully love it too.
