Description

How can we feed our people without damaging the environment or threatening human health? Local, sustainably run farms can help protect our health and the health of our communities while stimulating local economies. While industrial farming can negatively impact the environment in myriad ways (e.g., by polluting the groundwater), adversely affects the health of farm workers, and degrades the socioeconomic fabric of surrounding communities, small family farms are more likely to spend their dollars in the community, and local processing and distribution generates jobs and helps stimulate local economies.
