Where do Barack Obama and John McCain stand on family farm issues?

Is this election over yet? Not quite, but there’s less than two weeks to go! It seems like the campaigning has been going on for years (and in one way or another, it has!), but do we know everything we need to know to make an informed decision about our next president? Just what are McCain and Obama’s policies on food, agriculture, and the future of our family farms?

Those topics are something we don’t see the candidates address often enough, but they do have opinions and this month’s Ask Hilde column breaks it all down for us with an easy to read chart comparing the positions of both Obama and McCain.

So read up and remember to vote on November 4!
