I was one of those guys 10 years ago.

Too bad you can't make a living farming without inheriting the land and equipment. I did put myself through college throwing hay in the summers (the guy hossing the hay bale could use some lessons from a missouri boy) threw over a quarter million by the time I was 22. Makes you remember to study when you are at college..... Another 15 or 20 years of working as an engineer and I may be able to afford enough land that my 3 sons; 2, 11 months, and due at Christmas can afford to farm. At any rate I plan to afford enough land to at least retire as a hobby farmer.
