We are already in the process of getting a lot of people to think about becoming a farmer, said James Daley, president and CEO of the Texas Association of Rural Agriculture, who said he was encouraged by the amount of people who were interested.
That includes people from all walks of life, he said.
It’s a great opportunity for anyone who’s not interested in farming, he added.
He said he thinks it will be a huge boon for Texas.
The state is also the only place in the nation with an organic program that allows farmers to plant crops from seeds they grow themselves.
