Friends of Family Farmers works to support not only the livelihood and health of family farmers but the entire community. The health issues related to access and availability of whole, healthy and affordable food has been paramount in our national dialogue but what is often overlooked are the small farmers that allow for this access. Small local farmers can serve small local communities that are often overlooked by large corporate farms given to commodity cropping and export. By the same hand, however, small family farmers do not benefit from the economies of scale or subsidies that many large corporate farms enjoy and, thereby, fall short of the support they need to prosper. THAT is where Friends of Family Farmers shows its greatest strength by advocating for farmers, both as a friendly support and on the legislative level doing the work that small farmers are often too busy to engage in. As a volunteer and strong supporter I can think of very few other organization that work to address the issues of food access, health and farmer advocacy quite so brilliantly. It has been, and remains, and honor to work with them.

Friends of Family Farmers is one of the most well-organized, creative, and effective non-profits I have come across. I discovered them when a friend invited me to an InFARMation session. These sessions happen every month. FoFF invites speakers from all over the region to discuss issues that affect both farmers and consumers. Whether it's Farm Bills, raising urban chickens, food labels, or CSas, the topics are always fascinating, and their website is a great resource for further research. No other group is doing as much great work to support our farmers and to help consumers become more educated and connected to the food system. Thank you, FoFF, for helping to make me a better consumer, cultivator, and member of our community.
