Agriculture is one of Arizona’s top industries, and our agriculture workforce is aging. The average age of an Arizona farmer is 61. SB 1206 would establish a state-funded program that would provide paid internships for beginning farmers and ranchers. This program will not only help beginning farmers and ranchers enter a critical industry in Arizona, it will also help sustain farmers and ranchers of all sizes, large and small, across the state.
