Minority farmers work to keep their family farm legacies alive
The agriculture industry is not a typical profession for many reasons. A major factor that makes agriculture so unique is the process in which farmers and ranchers get their start. For many producers, their passion for agriculture starts at a very young age, oftentimes watching their parents and grandparents work on the farm. However, there is a lot of stress that comes along with farming the family land. Hear from two farmers as they share the trials and triumphs of continuing their family farming legacies.
Ryan Lankford of R.L. Lankford Farms in Dodson, Montana, said “I think my family has farmed and been part of agriculture since the beginning of time, before anybody else was here on this continent. Our family is our legacy and our land will always be part of our family.”
