Education to become a farmer?
I'm 19 years old and interested in sustainable agriculture. I'd like to have a small farm someday, and I'm really inspired by people like Joel Salatin.
As far as my education goes, I began studying economics at a local university. Then, as I learned more about agriculture, I decided to transfer to Ohio State University to study agribusiness. Now that I'm here I see that agribusiness courses aren't really relevant to a small farmer. Basically, the degree is the same as any general business degree.
I'm considering transferring back to my local university because it's cheaper. It seems to me that small farming is something I'm just going to have to read about and experiment with on my own. Can anyone provide any insight or has anyone been in a similar situation? What is the best way to learn about farming?
