One thing that’s for sure about farming is that you learn as you go: the more years you’ve been driving a horse, fixing a tractor or planning a season, the more skilled you become. Some of the most valuable lessons that farmers learn are simply from experience. That’s why the young farmers coalition is encouraging farmers to share what they’re learning in the fields through Farm Hack.
