ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND - OCTOBER 20:  A student from St Andrew's University indulges in a tradition of covering oneself with foam to honour the 'academic family' on October 20, 2014, in St Andrews, Scotland. Every November the 'raisin weekend' which is held in the university's Lower College Lawn, is celebrated and a gift of raisins (now foam) is traditionally given by first year students to their elders as a thank you for their guidance and in exchange they receive a receipt in Latin.

Ninety-four-year-old Charles Bradley has cared for his family’s 450-acre land in Weston, Mo., all his life. “It’s altogether a different situation,” he says of farming as he reflects on the past. “There were many farms up and down the road, but now it’s operated by one fella who has 2,000 to 3,000 acres.
