Wesley Kent works on his 650-acre dairy farm in Weyers Cave, of which he owns 300 acres and rents the rest. An ongoing concern over the dwindling number of people entering the agricultural field has led to the creation of programs aimed at helping future farmers overcome the obstacles standing between them and success. “We really need to do something because if we don’t, a lot of this land is not going to stay in farming,” Kent said.
