Are you looking for farms and fresh local food?
Are you looking for on-farm education?
Are you a struggling farmer looking for help?
Are you wanting to connect with other farmers?
We want to help you with all those things and more but we need you to tell us exactly what you need. Please contact us here.
Small Farms have always been the most efficient sector of agriculture and today they constitute the system best prepared and endowed to answer the pressing need to expand the world’s food supply in sustainable, safe, healthy and flavorful ways. Yet small farmers often work in isolation and neglect, while their needs for information, support and community exchange go unmet. The small farmer has an ongoing need for education and an exchange of ideas on matters practical and theoretical. The small farmer also needs access to insurance, legal aid, financing, marketing assistance, appropriate equipment, techniques and tools. The Small Farms Conservancy recognizes the critical importance of craftsmanship, appropriate technologies and ‘village’ sufficiencies to the survival and growth of farming on a human scale.
Having identified needs of small farmers, and the dependency of the world on a growing healthy small farm community, the Small Farms Conservancy is dedicated to working on behalf of small farmers everywhere.
Your contributions make the Conservancy’s effort possible. Your support broadens the base and brings us that much closer to our goals. Thank you for considering the Small Farms Conservancy and its critical work.
HELP US SPREAD THE WORD
We have received a donation of 50,000 back issue copies of the Small Farmer’s Journal with the stipulation that they be distributed primarily to community and/or group-based agricultural efforts in developing regions all over the planet
The widespread offering of Small Farmer’s Journal, a working partner of the Small Farms Conservancy, will serve to offer appropriate technologies and community outreach to struggling and nascent small farmers world wide. Such a dramatic effort will assist building the self reliance and self sufficiency of rural economies as it works to help feed the world. It will also serve to familiarize people with the efforts of SFC.
The Small Farms Conservancy is launching a fund raising campaign to build an account to cover the shipping and handling costs of this distribution. United Parcel Service (UPS) is offering SFC a discount as contribution! We are asking that anyone able and willing consider making an earmarked, tax-deductible, donation, of whatever amount, to our “Spread the Journal” fund. Thank you for considering this important effort.
