There was a movement to remove the Jews from their traditional ways and become farmers. Quite a few farming colonies were established in the Ukraine and other countries of the pail. Baron Hirsch established farming colonies in the Americas and Argentina had more than 30000 Jews making a living through farming, starting around 1880. There were Jewish farming schools set up by the the Baron Hirsch organization.
