The New Agriculture Census
Every five years, starting way back in 1840, the U.S. Department of Agriculture releases a new ag census.
We've combed through and picked out the top 10 things the new census tells us about family farmers and our food system right now.
Sarah Hoffman & Jacqueline Smith
Our newest Farmer Heroes are the operators of Green Dirt Farm in Missouri.
They're one of only 150 sheep dairies in the country, and talk about how they got into farming, their cheesemaking, and starting a new project to unite sheep dairies transitioning from feeding animals concentrated grains to grass.
What is a family farmer?
The truth is that there is no hard-and-fast definition of what a family farm is. So what does Farm Aid mean when we talk about them?
Learn how many family farmers are on the land now, why we've lost so many over the past few decades, and what Farm Aid is doing to keep family farmers growing good food for all of us.
The Farm Aid Resource Network
Connects family farmers with hundreds of organizations that have ideas for diversifying and strenghtening their farms.
