Shrinking Farmland

I was reading a blog today that stated that the number of farms in the USA mostly including Ohio and and Penn. is trending downwards. We are loosing an acre every 30 years. Sizes of farms is going up, but the amount of farmland compared to our population is decreasing. We are down to 0.6 acres of acrable farmland per person and that number is shrinking quickly.
So the call for more organic farmers is out there.
We need to stop sprawling! Reinvest in the city homes the suburbs keep moving away from. Stop building more and fix the houses we have!

Our family still hear the call to have farmland outside our urban little starter farm, but its not as easy as it sounds.
Soon I pray!
Just looking for that special farmer ready to retire, ready to pass on the tradition!
is that you? Call me!
