We advocate for fair farm and food policies.

We work to change agriculture laws and regulations to benefit local and organic small and mid-sized farms.

Our activities and programming include:

  • Grassroots campaigns to¬†change local, state and federal policy, including our 2012¬†Barn Storm Tour,
  • Public service to inform leadership and strategic direction of state and local councils, agencies, and agricultural institutions, and
  • Coalition-building, including the Sustainable Food NC Coalition, for expanded access to healthy foods and preservation of farms and natural resources.
