neighbours made the local paper

They’re retiring the farm. We retired our ranch now several years ago and the farm behind us retired a couple years ago but the next generation is considering starting up again.

  1. So many farmers retiring. After growing up next to one I have an understanding of the massive amount of work that has to go into it. So they have my sympathies. Especially in our time when everything has to be cheap cheap cheap and all the prices being squeezed.
    Though then this ironic voice in my heads pops up and asks “with everyone doing white collar jobs – where will our food eventually come from?” :-p
