Prioritize Family Farmers in the 2023 Farm Bill!
Tell Congress to keep their promises to family farmers!
This is a deciding moment for your voice to be heard ahead of the 2023 Farm Bill. NOW is your chance to let your legislators know that you want their support for the success of all family-scale farmers and ranchers across the US.
The Farm Bill has far-reaching impacts on food and agriculture and could fulfill crucial outcomes like achieving fair prices and agricultural credit for farmers prices, enforcing antitrust safeguards to curb corporate control, supporting conservation practices, and creating affordable access to land. Discussions for the 2023 Farm Bill have already begun! With your help, we can ensure that this Farm Bill includes transformative, justice-focused policies that help small family farmers thrive.
Contact your legislators today and urge them to ensure that the independent producers who feed us are prioritized in the 2023 Farm Bill!
Ask your legislators to support the Farmland for Farmers Act!
