Here is a story to be inspired about. Those hoping to become organic farmers in New York can take advantage of a new state program intended to support agriculture.

The Beginning Farmers Fund will provide new farmers with grants of up to $50,000. Organic farmers and those who plan to grow specialty crops will be given priority for the grants.

Here in our state the number of farms is growing every year, and the average age of farmers has began to drop. Younger farmers are getting into it :)

Hopefully with programs like this we will be seeing more farms down South.
