CONNECTING PEOPLE BACK TO FARMS
Helping farmers and ranchers tell their stories
Consumers are more interested in how their food is grown, processed and brought to market than ever before. We simply want to make sure that consumers — in an environment where they are bombarded with contradictions — have the balanced information they need about food to make informed choices that are right for them and their families.
