Young farmers face challenges
Planting dreams Madyson Versteeg and Jorge Cano chased their dream to a rented, 6-acre plot off the Palouse Highway. With altruistic aims and about $15,000 in savings, they planted their initial crop in long rows on an old horse pasture. Onions. Peppers. Kale. Collard greens. The couple went to college for this, studying sustainable agriculture at the University of Montana before moving back to Spokane to start the farm. Now, at the end of their first season, they’re just hoping to break even.
