Please support your local family farmers and farmers markets! Most are happy to tell you exactly how your food was grown and many will allow visitors to their farm if you just ask! Plus, you’ll know your food is freshest since it only had to travel a few short miles.
From seed to plate, we should know if our food was genetically modified (GMO) or chemically treated (Non-Organic).
Ninety-three percent of soybeans and 80 percent of corn grown in the United States are under the control of just one company (Monsanto). Currently, four companies control up to 90 percent of the global trade in grain.
Despite the odds family famers are up against, they still persevere. Each and every day they work hard to sustain a much better alternative. This is an agricultural system that guarantees farmers a fair living, strengthens our communities, protects our natural resources and delivers good food for all.
Nothing is more important than the food we eat and the family farmers who grow it. Always choose organic for all food! Corporate control of our food system has led to the loss of millions of family farmers, destruction of our soil, pollution of our water and health epidemics of obesity and diabetes. So, let’s agree to support our local family farmers, always choosing organic and say NO to GMO!
