Many young Americans with no farming

2
00:00:03,198 --> 00:00:06,082
experience are entering agriculture.

3
00:00:06,117 --> 00:00:10,749
They are learning about agriculture in college.

4
00:00:10,784 --> 00:00:15,711
Emily Sloss is showing visitors around Duke University’s

5
00:00:15,799 --> 00:00:19,317
new campus farm in North Carolina.

6
00:00:19,352 --> 00:00:23,631
“We don’t use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.”

7
00:00:23,666 --> 00:00:27,830
Emily Sloss studied public policy at Duke.

8
00:00:27,865 --> 00:00:32,732
Now, she supervises the university’s new campus farm.

9
00:00:32,767 --> 00:00:35,360
“Now I’ m a farmer. Yeah. Believe it or not.”

10
00:00:35,395 --> 00:00:39,378
In its first year, the farm has provided more

11
00:00:39,413 --> 00:00:43,551
than two tons of fresh vegetables for student meals.

12
00:00:43,586 --> 00:00:48,149
Nate Peterson directs the dining halls at Duke.

13
00:00:48,184 --> 00:00:51,255
“It’s phenomenal. The produce that is coming out

14
00:00:51,387 --> 00:00:54,930
of the Duke Farm and coming into
our cafés ... is excellent quality.”

15
00:00:54,965 --> 00:00:57,914
Maureen Moody has studied what makes

16
00:00:57,949 --> 00:01:00,352
young people want to become farmers.

17
00:01:00,387 --> 00:01:03,874
Now, she herself is a farmer,

18
00:01:03,909 --> 00:01:07,519
at the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food

19
00:01:07,554 --> 00:01:10,358
and Agriculture near Washington, D.C.

20
00:01:10,393 --> 00:01:13,369
“A lot of people that are becoming farmers now are not

21
00:01:13,404 --> 00:01:16,095
the people you would traditionally think of as farmers.

22
00:01:16,130 --> 00:01:18,922
Me and a lot of people I know,
we didn’t grow up on farms.”

23
00:01:19,123 --> 00:01:21,441
“I’ve been eating this food all my life

24
00:01:21,476 --> 00:01:23,782
without having any idea where it comes from.”

25
00:01:23,817 --> 00:01:29,000
Movies like “Food Inc.” and books critical of American

26
00:01:29,035 --> 00:01:33,040
food production have led some young people to consider

27
00:01:33,075 --> 00:01:38,434
a career in agriculture. But Maureen Moody says many

28
00:01:38,469 --> 00:01:42,284
who become farmers have difficulty succeeding.

29
00:01:42,319 --> 00:01:45,602
“It’s really hard to stick with it after a few years.

30
00:01:45,637 --> 00:01:49,495
Some do, and I think, you know,
they figure out a way to make it work.

31
00:01:49,530 --> 00:01:52,851
But it’s really hard to make any money and to make a living.”
