Welcome Apprentices!

After living on a farm in Lockport, Illinois, for 73 years, Harlow Cagwin sold his family land to a subdivision developer. Common Ground takes us on a journey exploring the differences and similarities of life in suburbia and life on the family farm. Click on the image above to see and hear more.

Apprentices, you are the future! We're counting on you to help buck this trend. First however, we could use your aid in securing the future of the Apprenticeship with permanent housing for next year's class. Please encourage your friends, families and each other to donate $ and/or time to the Grow a Farmer: Apprenticeship Housing Campaign.

Have something to share with your fellow farmies? The community at large? Want to post on this blog? Email me to set up an account. Happy farming!

Apprentices are indeed the future, not sure about the US but over in the UK we're investing heavily in apprenticeships.
