I do love farming and will continue to farm as long as it works out financially for me. But the minute my operation would cease to be a financially viable operation I won't hesitate to give it up. I refuse to farm just to break even and barely be able cover my living expenses.....I recently had my eyes opened to how many farms operate like that. I guess that kind of makes me not a real farmer.
If every farmer thought that way no one would be farming.You just hope the good years out number the bad and you get ahead long term.Some years you hit home runs and other years you strike out.Markets,weather.politics and other unforeseen circumstances are all game changers and greatly effect bottom line.
