Thanks to all of you that watched the beginning farmer and rancher video below and shared it through your social networks! The Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act of 2011 will be introduced in Congress next week! This is our chance to ensure food security for future generations and new farming enterprises that can bring jobs and economic renewal to revitalize our nation’s communities. There are just a few days left to best take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity! Only once every 5 years do you have the opportunity to truly change our food and farm system through the farm bill.
To get the urgent need for beginning farmers and ranchers recognized in the farm bill, we need to show big support from as many legislators as possible for the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act. If you haven’t yet made a call in response to Tuesday’s action alert, there is still time!
Ask your Two Senators and your Member of Congress to Co-sponsor the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act of 2011!
Together we can cultivate a new generation of sustainable farmers and ranchers.
