We support the preservation of the family farm from an economic, an environmental, and a public health perspective. Vertical integration of farming (such as control of seeds and livestock) not only leads to more detrimental practices, but also undermines the rural economy. Alternative agriculture (integrated pest management and organic agriculture) can boost farm income and reduce toxic loading into the environment from pesticides. Alternative livestock production also envisions the avoidance of chemical, hormonal and antibiotic inputs. In addition, properly pricing farm products (parity pricing) would keep real farmers in business. Together these policies would provide us a healthy food supply, vastly improve environmental quality and farm income, reduce or eliminate farm subsidies, and set the stage for a strong rural economy. Below are the articles on this site related to family farms.

 

Tell Henry County Officials to Protect Public Health and Quality of Life by Passing Strong Ordinance on Factory Farms!

Last summer the Henry County Commissioners, after failing to agree on new county rules for large industrial farms or confined feeding operations (CFOs) , voted to enact a moratorium on any new or expanded CFOs in the county. Since then, industrial agriculture interests have been pushing for minimal standards that fail to protect everyone in Henry County.

The Downstream Project

Indiana has become a magnet for factory farms. Despite the growing demand for food produced locally and in a sustainable way, the Indiana Department of Agriculture has embraced factory farming as the way of the future.

More than half of Indiana’s 92 counties are home to at least one factory farm. Concerned citizens in those communities have organized to protect their property values, public health, the environment, and quality of life, but face an uphill battle.
