Farming 100 Years Ago

Agriculture has changed substantially over the past 100 years. Tractors were just beginning to come into common use and nearly every farm was organic.

Today, farming looks much different, but agriculture faces similar problems: a depleted workforce, a need for education, and a rapid advancement of technology.
