Chasing Unicorns:  A Discussison with the Rare Young Farmer

After a hiatus to recharge, the Food Focus podcast is back.  Everyone has a picture in their head of what a farmer looks like.  In general, that picture isn't of a 20 something young Bachelor of Commerce graduate.  While an aging demographic is the reality in farming, there are actually young people who are keen to get into farming. In this episode Mike chats with two young University of Guelph graduates who aspire to farm.  They talk about what attracts them to farming, what people don't understand about farming and what some of the challenges to getting started are.
