Farmers face more challenges than ever

Young farmers may do things the hard way, but it’s the right way. They understand the importance of sustainable and ethical farming but are also facing new problems like climate change and the cost of new technology. But the main barrier that’s holding them back is the access to land to build and grow their farms.
