NL farmers looking to grow interest among young people

Dec. 7, 2015 - A group of farmers in Newfoundland and Labrador is working to encourage young people to work in the agriculture industry.

Chris Oram, vice chair of the Young Farmer's Forum and a farmer in Wooddale, says that farmers in the province are aging.

He said that the average age is near 64, and farmers across the country are getting older.

Oram said his group is made up of 65 young farmers between the ages of 19 and 40.
