In today’s technologically-driven society, millennials seem to be more inclined to seek jobs in the cityscape. However, a group of young farmers in our countryside are stepping up, hoping to create a revolution by going against the grain and aiming for the sustainable.

Part of this group is 21-year-old Rudy Concepcion II of Cauayan, Isabela. For him, agriculture is key to securing the future of the next generations, despite what other young people might perceive of it.
