Add Your Voice to the Young Farmer Success Act of 2015!
Student Loan Debt Is an Obstacle For Many Americans, But Often an Insurmountable One for Young Farmers
America needs 100,000 young farmers!
Bringing young people back to the farm or ranch is a national priority. The average age of the American farmer is increasing, and farmers over the age of 65 outnumber farmers under the age of 35 by a margin of 6-to-1. Young people are ready to farm, but student loan debt is keeping them from starting.
Send your Representative an email today, and tell him/her to support the Young Farmer Success Act of 2015. If they’ve already sponsored the bill, they’ll get a thank you note.
