Growing young farmers

North Side farmer Rolin Chisholm says if Cayman wants to see future generations of farmers, it needs to plant the seeds in the hearts of the younger generation.

Mr. Chisholm grew a huge 26 pound sweet potato on his rugged farm land in North Side. He says he first fell in love with Cayman’s rich soil when he was a young boy in school, and believes we should teach the youth to grow from now.

He told Cayman 27, “As a young boy going to school, we had something called blotting paper. We took a corn seed or a bean, and put it in a jar with water and blotting paper, and in a couple of days it was very intriguing for us to watch the beans sport. So Cayman if you want to encourage the younger generation you have to do it from the schools.”

Mr. Chisholm is in the process of getting his sweet potato officially weighed, in the hopes that he may have broken the world record.
