Rhonda Perry, MRCC Executive Director and 5th generation livestock and grain farmer, tells it like it is in Newsweek:

“We deserve robust protections that limit corporate control of our farm and food system and create an open, fair, and competitive market for family farmers, new and beginning farmers, and local food systems. Owning a family farm and being able to make a fair living off the land should be the norm in our country, not an unattainable dream.

If our representatives won’t use the Farm Bill to help rural communities, then they don’t deserve our support. It’s time to stand up to them, and their corporate backers, and demand an end to the corporate takeover of our farms and food.”
