The Farmer’s Code How Legacies Are Built By Mike C. Young

The different aspects of farming – such as planting, pruning, tilling, tending, fertilizing, cultivating, and harvesting – are words that also can be applied to human beings’ stages of growth, learning, and development. 

In his new book, The Farmer’s Code: How Legacies Are Built, Mike C. Young, the fourth-generation leader of a 100-year-old family-owned agricultural business, shares insights from his experience that can help readers on a path of transformation that will positively impact others. 

Success, Young writes, leaves clues. In following those clues and exploring what they meant in terms of a legacy, he realized that a legacy is a sustained commitment to an idea – and “knowing that your commitment to the future goes way beyond you.” Young emphasizes emotional intelligence as the key ingredient underpinning every resilient legacy and delves into the narrative of four generations of family stories, unveiling the essential components to help the reader live their own code. 

In this book, readers will learn:

  • Tips on resilience, adaptation, and staying optimistic in challenging times
  • Lessons on living well and leaving a legacy from a century-old family business
  • Advice on living with intention and making an impact 
  • Why Young believes we all have wisdom worth passing on to future generations
  • Ways in which Young's farming roots shaped his views on relationships and personal growth
