This just in from Randy. If you are in the Lansing area and want to learn about what the Farm Bill is about for family farms, organic, and local foods (as well as MANY other ag points) you should come.
You should come also if you would like to voice your opinion of what the Farm Bill should do for US farmers and ag businesses and consumers like all of us!!
