Entrepreneurs in their field

What motivates young entrepreneurs to return to the family farm?

Instead of following many millenials to urban centers, brothers Braden, Brittan and Cameron Gruhlkey each decided to return to the family farm. The Gruhlkey brothers now farm alongside their father, Bill, while also expanding the family business and making their own mark.

Adopting new, innovative practices, including soil and water conservation, is key to advancing their farm business and securing its success for their generation – and those that follow. The technical and financial assistance from USDA – Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) enables young farmers to establish successful operations that make viable business and conservice vital resources.
