"Recently, a short drive through Vernon County led me past three failing barns. These graying, partially collapsed heaps of pine and paint highlight a huge challenge frequently facing the next wave of beginning farmers. Not just because they’ll be without some valuable storage but because those outbuildings are often an indication of the state of even more precious resources. If the sad, old barn is falling in, then the soil, wells, field roads and woodlots have all probably endured the same disrepair. The work and resources necessary to restore some of these places to a semblance of wholeness is Herculean.
Regardless, 'contrary farmers' are pouring their hearts into the task. They bring in money from off the farm, which they then apply to amending the soils and repairing or improving the infrastructure of the farm. For some, their farm business is never intended to provide a full-time income; but for many others, the time at an off-farm job is preparation, biding their time as they slowly develop the carrying capacity of their farm ecosystem and business. It’s an exhausting task, though, and many beginning farmers burn themselves out physically and emotionally before their farmstead is ready to support their family. We have to find ways to responsibly help these farmers catch up on the maintenance backlog." ---- Want more? Keep reading about these "Contrary Farmers" on our website! .

#Agriculture is often seen as a man’s world, but in fact, women are leading the #futureoffarming. According to the 2017 National Young Farmer Survey by @youngfarmers, they make up 60% of farmers under the age of 40. While access to land, student loan debt, and access to health insurance are huge barriers for any young farmer, adequate farming education, resources and simple emotional support are also huge factors to success. We're proud to recognize the excellent women-farmer groups that are helping ensure Southern Wisconsin’s young farmer population continues to grow! Like @soilsisterswisco, @womenfoodagnet, and the numerous Women in Sustainable Ag groups in our region (https://mosesorganic.org/in-her-boots/networking/). .
