So just like virtually everybody else, I’m a sucker for babies and puppies. If you are, too, you’ll want to watch Clay Masters’ excellent video feature about Bart Hall, a Kansas farmer who has taken on an apprentice. (The babies and puppies you'll have to discover yourself.)
Actually, this video could be viewed as a trailer for a documentary that Clay is working on about the farmer of the future.
It’s an interesting question: who will feed the nine billion people expected to populate the world by 2050?
Bart has an interesting story and it hooked me with another thing I’ll always read about – family farms. He and his wife, Margit, are worried that their 11-month-old daughter won’t be ready to take over for them soon enough. So they found an apprentice.
Watch Clay’s piece to meet an interesting young man from the ‘burbs, as the apprentice puts it, who feels grateful to have a gig in farming. And expect Clay’s documentary to be aired sometime this Spring.
