Every farmer should tell the FDA how these rules will influence his/her farm because this will have the greatest effect. This workshop is designed to help farmers understand the proposed rules and learn how to comment.
  • Discuss some of the potential impact of these rules on small farms, organic farms, sustainable agriculture, mixed crop/livestock farms and CSAs.
