Who wants to be a farmer?

Nobody, is the short answer [1]. But Jen Leavy and I still managed to spin it out for another 40 pages.

who wants to farm?

[1] The long answer is nobody wants to because its risky, poorly paid, kids of farmers have seen their parents suffer, everyone wants a job that pays a regular cash income that lets you buy and wear nice clothes and can get you a phone, smart if poss., and mainly because people on low and precarious incomes can’t get the land, agri inputs or credit to farm on the scale you need to make a living in volatile globalising times.
