From the Guelph Mercury – Full Story
Tarrah Young knows that most kids don’t dream of growing up to be farmers.
But this 30-year-old from the suburbs is about to make that leap.
She admits it’s an unusual career choice in an era of factory farms. But the idea came to her in an epiphany, via a fourth-year organic agriculture class at the University of Guelph.
It’s been a long and winding road. Next growing season, Young will quit her day job and set out as the first graduate of the FarmStart program at Ignatius Jesuit Centre.
