Endorse our 2018 Farm Bill Platform

Congress is already getting to work writing the 2018 Farm Bill. As a member organization of the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), we are signed on to the coalition's agenda. The Agenda for the 2018 Farm Bill is a blueprint for positive change. It reflects the real, urgent needs of farmers, ranchers, and communities across the country.

We need your help! Let's show Congress that farmers and families from around the country are calling for change.

Join us: sign on as an individual endorser of NSAC’s Agenda for the 2018 Farm Bill!
