For each of the families of Five Farms, the question looms large: Who will take over the farm? Succession features the next generation — the young people in each farm family. Who will continue to farm; who won’t, and why? Some have gone away to college or to explore work off the farm, and have returned with new ideas and new energy. Others leave farming for good. The program also explores community connections that are part of rural life.
