FARFA is working hard to protect our local farmers and food producers — please help us keep up this fight by donating during our holiday fundraising drive!
If you join or donate by December 31, your donation and your membership dues will be doubled. Thanks to our generous donors — Hugh Fitzsimons; Pam Walker, author of Growing Good Things to Eat; and Texas Farmers Market (Cedar Park & Mueller) — donations and memberships will be matched up to $4,500!
Please join or renew your membership, or make an additional donation today. Help us reach our $9,000 goal before the end of the year…we’re 87% of the way there!
As we wrap up this year, we’re reflecting on what we’ve achieved in the last twelve months and the people who make our work possible. FARFA doesn’t get money from the government or Agribusiness — we are supported by and answer only to the grassroots we represent: our farmers, food producers, and concerned consumers.
Please help keep us going as a voice for independent agriculture by joining or donating today!
If you make a donation before the end of the year, you also get your choice of a special thank you gift: a FARFA t-shirt or DVDs from several of the panels at our 2014 Farm & Food Leadership Conference.
Although only donations above and beyond the membership dues qualify for the end of year gifts, membership dues count towards the matching donation!

Support Your Local Food System
We need to change the rules that favor Big Agribusiness and Big Food over small-scale, local producers. FARFA works to change the laws at the local, state and federal levels to support our local food system!

Please consider making a donation to FARFA for the work we do to support independent family farmers and protect a healthy and productive food supply for American consumers.
Our work depends entirely on the financial support of grassroots supporters like you: farmers, ranchers, small-business owners, home food producers, and local food advocates. Help us continue to make sure that the voice of independent agriculture is heard loud and clear!
