We are farmers, farm organizations and others involved in one of the most important sectors to our rural communities and state: farming. We know our farms may look different than they used to, but we share the same values that have guided farmers for generations—producing safe food raised in a responsible way. Our members represent the diverse farming community that provides your families and ours with safe and wholesome meat, milk and eggs.
