The 2008 Farm Bill is set to expire on September 30, 2012.
This is it. It’s make or break time for the 2012 Farm Bill.
What is at stake?
- Hands-on training and tools for beginning farmers and ranchers.
- Support for cutting-edge organic and sustainable research.
- New infrastructure – like ‘food hubs’ and innovative marketing tools – that helps farmers take advantage of ever-growing demand for local and regional food.
- … and more!
P.P.S. Here's the scene from Capitol Hill today, where farmers and ranchers from around the country rallied for a farm bill now! It's critical that any farm bill - or extension - fully fund programs that support sustainable agriculture, economic development, and beginning farmers and ranchers!
