The Farmer & The City Girl – Big Ag, Hobby Farms and Birthrights

The Farmer & The City Girl – Big Ag, Hobby Farms and Birthrights

In this episode, Carrie is trying to understand and Rob is trying to explain, the farmer mentality when it comes to hobby farms, intermediate size farms, big ag and corporate farms.

They talk about everything from the size of your tractor, the types of farm entities, BTO (Big Time Operator), how and why “big ag” can be extremely intimidating to the intermediate/small farmer, and Rob’s obsession with Old McDonald.

And then they drill deep into the farmer’s unique entitlement/failure mentality when it comes to what defines them and the lengths they will go to in order to keep farming.

FEEDBACK REQUESTED:
• Farmers: Have you ever had to take a non-farming job in order to keep food on your table? Did you feel like a failure because of it? Or did you feel like you had to do what you had to do to make it through the rough times?
