Bannock County Farmers of the Year. John and Karen McNabb have so many ideas concerning why the farm life is a good life. They admit there are challenges for young people who are trying to get into farming but have solutions. You know, it's hard to get going as a young person in farming because of the cost. But it's possible. Like so many other ways of life, you start out from the bottom, you be willing to do whatever it is, do the cleanup work, do the chores. You start out with a little bit of equipment operation and learn how to repair it. And you just you stick with it and eventually opportunities can come. But it requires a lot of commitment and desire to be there. There are definitely things in life that financially are probably more appealing to people, but the way of life on a farm and the opportunity to work together and suffer the hard times and enjoy the good times together, there are great experiences and a great place to raise a family. You know, I hope that our future generations will feel a responsibility to preserve the way of life, and we need to save and preserve our farmlands in this country. And it's a big concern of losing good farm ground, farm ground that especially that with irrigation. And we need to be proactive about taking care of farming in the future.
