donate-onlineWe appreciate donations of any amount – every bit helps, even $5 or $10. Donations help pay for researching and printing educational materials, having booths at events, organizing citizen lobbying days, traveling to Washington, D.C. for lobbying, and all of the other activities involved in advocating for our farms and our food.

We are funded completely by our grassroots: people, farmers, small businesses, and organizations like you who care about protecting our access to a healthy and productive food supply.

If you wish to make a donation of any amount, THANK YOU!

If you are interested directing your donation to the Larry Butler Scholarship Fund, please make your donation through the Council for Healthy Food Systems by selecting “Larry Butler Scholarship Fund” in the “use this donation for” dropdown menu.

Please note: FARFA is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)4 organization due to our lobbying work in support of our farmers, local food producers, and consumers. Donations to 501(c)4 non-profits are not tax-deductible. FARFA’s sister organization, the Council for Healthy Food Systems, is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to promote local and regional food systems through education and research. Please also consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Council for Healthy Food Systems.

If you are not yet a member of FARFA, please also consider membership. More members means the government pays more attention to what we have to say. Membership starts at $20 and includes a variety of perks and benefits. Learn more about membership.

If you would like to speak to someone about a major gift, please contact Executive Director, Judith McGeary, at to discuss. As we continue to grow as an organization and expand the scope of our work, we rely on gifts from our generous donors to remain financially sustainable.

“During the years that we’ve been farming, our family has become more aware of how important a supportive community is to our ability to farm and how necessary it is for us all to work together to preserve our right to food freedom.
FARFA is essential to these efforts, and we need everyone to support their work for the future so that we can keep providing good food for our community.”

“Eating is so much more than food. We see our customers as environmental activists who are passionate about their health and community. By choosing local, organic foods, they ensure that all Texans have excellent food options, much in the same way FARFA is ensuring the survival of small, family farms.”

citizen-lobbying2“FARFA played a critical role in the passage of the Texas cottage food law. Prior to 2011, the cottage food movement was comprised of mostly enthusiastic home bakers with no political experience. FARFA added much-needed political muscle, know-how, connections, and finesse to the cottage food movement. Ultimately the passage of the bill in 2011, and its expansion in 2013, can be directly attributed to FARFA’s involvement.”
