ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion about farming without fossil fuels. Some people are concerned that fossil fuels will run out in the future and farming will eventually become hard. The cost of fossil fuels is already affecting the profits of conventional farming. It will have a bigger impact in the future. Plans have been made for alternative sources of fuels. One of the alternatives is using biofuels. Wood chips can also be used as a source of fuel for farming. Farming without fossil fuels should be able to generate profits.
