“Farmers have a tremendous impact on the quality of food that we eat. But it takes a lot of effort from the consumer to make that work. The consumer and the family farmer have to work together.” — John Mellencamp
When you eat good food grown by family farmers, you know what you’re getting — honest, real food grown by people who care about their land, their community and their future. There is a groundswell of support for local, organic, humanely-raised, family farm identified food. This is the Good Food Movement.
There is still much work to be done to strengthen and expand the Good Food Movement so that family farm food is affordable and available to all. Farm Aid works to keep our farmers thriving, put new farmers on the land, support connections between farmers and eaters, and secure a future of good food for all.
