Young and ambitious? Here’s how to get ahead
High grain prices haven’t just strengthened the balance sheet, but brought an infusion of youth into a sector where 40-year-olds are considered young farmers.
But with prices down, will ambitious young people find dad and mom aren’t so open to new ideas?
Mike Fata hopes not.
“Farming is no different than any other business — innovate or perish,” says the CEO of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods. “The younger generation isn’t intimidated by change and are willing to try new things and innovate. So it’s good to see farmers in their 20s and 30s being aggressive in pursuing growth opportunities.”
