Young, idealistic farmers help keep land in production

"They tend to be very interested in local, they tend to be very interested in organic as the future path they want to travel on," said Kathleen Merrigan, who traveled extensively when she was deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "They tend to be college graduates, and from a whole lot of different disciplines."
