Photos: Meet one of America's youngest farmers

Meet one of America's youngest farmers. Thomas Neblett, 22, farms 2,400 acres and is surrounded by a crew that parallels his age. Sunrise Planting Co., Clarksdale, Miss., is an extreme exception: “As far as being 22 years old, there’s a lot of guys that work on farms that are my age, but I’m the only guy I know of that’s 22 and running his own farm."
