Our food and farm future is at risk!

Join Farm Aid and the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition in taking action today.

Everyone has a role to play in keeping our food safe from field to fork but FDA's new rules will unfairly burden family farmers, target sustainable and organic farming, and reduce the availability of fresh, local food in our communities. Now is the time to tell FDA that this is unacceptable TAKE ACTION by signing the petition below today.

To the US Food and Drug Administration:

As concerned citizens, farmers, and business owners, we are asking you to make changes to the proposed rules under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) to ensure that new regulations do not put safe farms out of business, harm farmers' soil, water, and wildlife conservation efforts, or shut down the growth of local and regional healthy food systems.

Because:

  • All people everywhere deserve an abundant, safe and healthy food supply; and
  • All farmers everywhere deserve to make a fair living by producing safe and wholesome food.

The undersigned urge the Food and Drug Administration to write food safety regulations that work for family farmers and:

  • Allow farmers to use sustainable farming practices, including those already allowed and encouraged by existing federal organic standards and conservation programs;
  • Ensure that diversified and innovative farms, particularly those pioneering models for increased access to healthy, local foods, continue to grow and thrive without being stifled; and
  • Provide options that treat family farms fairly, with due process and without excessive costs.

Signed,
