Save Vital Family Farm Programs

  • by:

Family farms are in trouble. Congress is considering cutting the subsidies that make up the safety net crucial for non-corporate farms to survive.

Drafts of the farm bill have proposed cutting $19 billion from family farm subsidies, all but guaranteeing the end of many of these small businesses.

Write to your Senators and insist that midrange farms are not driven into the ground by corporate powerhouses like Monsanto.

The subsidies collected by large farming enterprises make it more difficult for family farms to stay in business. Now, they may be forced to close their doors permanently.

Tell the United States Senate to level the playing field. Don't cut vital subsidies from the farm bill!
Dear Senator,

The farm bill provides crucial subsidies to help struggling family farms over large corporations like Monsanto. In order to keep the playing field level, it is essential that the midrange farms are given the support they need to stay open for business and boost their local economies.

If the projected cuts to the farm bill were to take place, they would secure the dominance of corporate powerhouses in the farming industry and all but guarantee the downfall of their smaller counterparts. Americans cannot afford a monopoly on their food.
