Agripreneurship

 

Around the world

Making a decent living out of agriculture is increasingly becoming a challenge.

As more young people migrate to cities, the average age of farmers increases. Climate change makes farming even more challenging and impacts the entire food system.

We are supporting farmers to meet these challenges. To ensure the long-term quality and sustainability of our supplies, we are helping young people to make agriculture a profitable and sustainable activity.

I work on my family farm here in Eden Valley with my mum, my dad and my uncle. It's just something I always wanted to do. It's a difficult time for dairy farmers, we need to look to young people to help secure a future in the dairy industry.

My dad started the farm from nothing. He was a patriarch, very well-known in my village. He went on to create this profitable farm. I love agriculture, I love the earth, this ground. I wanted to contribute to bringing a modern outlook to farming.

I always knew this is what I wanted to do, and it was very important for me to continue the farm. Growing up I was helping out from a very early age. I had little time for myself, but I liked doing the work. It made me the person I am today. Harvesting the crop has always been my favorite part of the job, when you literally get to see the fruit of your labor.
