The people have spoken and we are demanding that farming in America be done by families with a sincere connection to the land, not billion-dollar multinational companies. And this year is a Farm Bill year, so it has to start NOW.
Last Friday, at Farm Aid’s People’s Hearing on the Farm Bill, MRCC made it clear: Farmers, consumers, rural communities, the environment and “everything we value” paid a heavy price to make way for industrialized, corporate farming.
Speaker after speaker hammered home the need for the 2023 Farm Bill to support a decentralized food system that allows family farmers and communities to thrive and that addresses climate change and racial justice.
