Tell your member of Congress to sponsor the Beginning Farmer and Ranchers Opportunity Act of 2011!
In partnership with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, the National Young Farmers' Coalition is advocating for the Beginning Farmers and Ranchers Opportunity Act of 2011.
This package of legislation fixes, funds and improves USDA programs, as well as adds new programs to help young and beginning farmers succeed.
To build support for the bill, we're asking our network of farmers and supporters to contact their local members of Congress and Senators to ask them to sponsor the bill.
Here's a sample letter to get you started. All you need to do is edit (or not), fill in your contact info and hit 'send.'
