Are you planning your life ahead and thinking you might want to try farming? Is this going to be a viable and fulfilling option, you wonder? The answer, it seems , can vary widely. In the US, a recent article with the somewhat dismal title “Don’t Let Your Children Grow Up to be Farmers” has been gaining a lot of attention. The discussion throws up concerns over scale of farming, credit etc. In contrast, young farmers in Kenya are presented with farming as a great opportunity to contribute to their country’s development, earn a good living and even, be “cool”! What is your opinion?
