Do you grow or raise food? Do you love to eat locally and sustainably produced food?
We need you to join our fight. (Join today and take advantage of our special membership perks.)
At the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA), we are dedicated to supporting independent farmers and protecting a healthy and productive food supply for American consumers.
Why do we do this? Why isn’t it enough for farmers to “fly under the radar,” or for consumers to “vote with their fork”?
We need a voice for farmers and consumers because the laws and policies are written by and for Big Agribusiness. And whether those laws are enforced today, tomorrow, or a year from now, they put many small farmers at risk of being put out of business. At a minimum, they discourage farmers from expanding and increased the cost of production, ultimately raising prices for healthy local food.
We may not have the money power that corporate agriculture and their lobbyists have, but we can outnumber them! We need our membership to reflect the incredible number of farmers and consumers who care about the future of our food.
What Your Membership Helps Us Accomplish
Your membership is vital to building our strength and having FARFA’s voice heard in state legislatures and Congress. With your help, we can promote common sense policies for local, diversified agricultural systems that produce healthy food.
By becoming a member, you will not only strengthen our voice, but you will also help us:
- Continue our successful fight to prevent the imposition of unworkable new federal food safety regulations.
- Expand our work in fighting genetically modified foods (GMOs).
- Expand our activism training to increase people’s access to tools and multiply our effectiveness.
- Provide more education about legal issues that may affect your farms and your food choices.
- Support grassroots efforts across the country to pass local foods legislation at the state level.
We keep our membership fees as low as possible, starting at $20 or $35 per year, so everyone can participate! We trust that those who can, will support us at higher levels. JOIN TODAY!
