EarthNews Radio: Family Farms
Family farms are a centuries-old tradition that has seen farms passed down from generation to generation. One organization is working to preserve the tradition of the family farm.
Jerry Kay spoke to Steve Schwartz, founder of California FarmLink:
Schwartz says that the mission of the organization help the next generation of farmers. He says that the organization pairs retiring farmers who have no heirs, or whose children aren't interested in maintaining the farm, with people who want to get into the business.
California FarmLink also supports farmland preservation by working with landowners and local governments. You can learn more about the organization by visiting its website at
