Although farming is attracting interest among some younger people , they are often prevented from pursuing it because land is too expensive to buy. On the other hand rural areas which have emptied out, have older farmers who no longer farm the entire land they own but have no children to carry on either. But a program that encourages older farmers to rent out land at low rates to younger farms just starting out might provide a solution that works for everyone.
