French Agriculture in Crisis: A Challenge for tomorrow’s Farmers

High-tech and old-school organic methods

While #France​ is still Europe’s agricultural powerhouse, the number of #farmers​ is steadily falling, by almost 2 percent every year. Worse, an ageing workforce and a lack of new blood mean that around 15 percent of the current contingent is set to retire within the next five years, leaving many a homestead with no one to take over. But training schools have adapted to the times and are now prepping would-be farmers with a tasty combination of high-tech and old-school organic methods. We take a closer look and meet one young organic farmer.
