SEEKING INPUT

The Farmers & Institutional Purchasing Policy Action Team is looking for farmers who are willing to share their views and experiences about the Farm Bill.

The Farm Bill has a tremendous effect on how food is grown, the environment, and the food economy, including programs that cover commodities, conservation, trade, nutrition, credit, rural development, research, forestry, energy, specialty crops, and crop insurance.

This Policy Action Team aims to create a series of short (5 minute or less) video clips intended to educate the public, congressional leaders, fellow farmers, and other food systems activists about local farmers’ perspectives on the Farm Bill and food policy.

If you would like to share your views and experiences, please contact Jae Gerhart at gerhart1@anr.msu.edu or Stephanie Willette at steph.willette@gmail.com.
