Advocacy is Essential In Today's Agricultural Climate

Carole and I would like to shed light on the importance of speaking up in support of small farming and new farmers of all creeds and colors. Small-scale farming is not just about growing food; it's about nurturing sustainable communities, preserving biodiversity, and fostering economic resilience. I think we all learned a lot in the pandemic times. Let's take a look at why it's crucial for all of us to lend our voices to this cause.

  1. Preserving Local Agriculture: Small farmers are the backbone of local agriculture. By supporting them, we ensure that our communities have access to fresh, l produce. This reduces our dependence on large, industrialized food systems and the associated environmental costs of long-distance transportation.

  2. Environmental Conservation: Small-scale farming often prioritizes sustainable and eco-friendly practices. These farmers tend to use fewer chemicals, conserve water resources, and implement crop rotation techniques. Supporting small farming helps protect our environment by reducing the negative impact of industrial agriculture.

  3. Biodiversity Preservation: Small farmers often cultivate a wide variety of crops and raise diverse livestock breeds. This diversity promotes genetic variety and resilience in the face of pests and diseases, contributing to global biodiversity conservation efforts.

  4. Cultural Heritage: Small farms are often deeply rooted in local culture and traditions. By supporting them, we preserve unique farming methods, heirloom crops, and regional culinary traditions that make our communities distinctive and rich.

  5. Economic Resilience: Small-scale farming can provide economic opportunities for individuals and communities. By supporting new farmers, we empower the next generation to participate in agriculture and create jobs in rural areas, fostering economic resilience and stability.

  6. Food Security: Small farms play a vital role in ensuring food security. When local farmers thrive, communities are less vulnerable to disruptions in the global food supply chain. Speaking up for small farming helps safeguard our access to nutritious food.

  7. Community Building: Small farms often engage with their local communities through farmers' markets, community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs, and educational initiatives. Supporting these farms helps build stronger, more connected communities.

  8. Advocating for Fair Policies: Speaking up for small farming also means advocating for policies that support these farmers. By raising awareness and lobbying for fair regulations, we can help level the playing field and create a more equitable agricultural landscape.

  9. Innovation and Adaptation: New farmers bring fresh ideas and innovative approaches to agriculture. Supporting them encourages the development of sustainable farming practices and technologies that benefit everyone.

  10. Long-Term Food Security: Small farmers are more likely to invest in long-term sustainability and resilience rather than short-term profit. By supporting them today, we ensure a more secure food future for generations to come.

By speaking up and supporting small-scale agriculture, we can all contribute to a healthier, more sustainable, and more resilient future for our communities and the planet.


The view of a small farmer who sees himself as contributing to the overall health of his local community, and sees himself as a steward of his land is a far cry from the view of the corporate-dominated, monoculture ag farmer who has little regard for their soils or their customer's health.

Removing barriers to local farmers and farming is a win for everyone.
