Farmers Bring Hope for Our Climate and Our Future

by Steve Snyder

“This is a people-powered movement to shift agriculture in ways that benefit farmers, rural communities, our climate, soil and water, and all of us.”

 

– Willie Nelson

We all know that farming is connected to the health of our planet and that agricultural practices and policies have a major impact on the health of our communities, our soil, water and air, and our future. We also know that the family farmers and ranchers we depend upon are on the front lines of climate change, facing new precipitation patterns, severe drought, floods and other extreme weather events.

Family farmers are resourceful, resilient and innovative. They’re developing new crop varieties, livestock breeds, and farm practices and strategies that are specifically designed to help them adapt to our evolving climate realities.

THE STRENGTH OF THE SUN AS THE DAYS GROW LONGER. THE SCENT OF BLOSSOMS AND FRESH GRASS THAT FILL THE AIR AROUND US. AND THE S0NGS OF BIRDS AND BUGS AND PEOPLE GATHERING, AS THE EARTH AWAKENS AGAIN.

Our family farmers and ranchers bring us hope for our climate and our future. When we choose food from family farmers, we’re prioritizing communities above corporations and putting our food dollars to good use by supporting their investments in the health of our planet.

Your gift to support family farmers now makes a real difference for family farmers right when they need it most. Please make a donation today to show them just how much the good food they grow means to you.

As a small token of our thanks, we’ll be glad to send you a 100% recycled American aluminum Farm Aid water bottle with your generous gift of $100 or more (while supplies last) so that you can show your support of family farmers everywhere you go!
