CAFF is a strong advocate for family-scale agriculture that cares for the land, sustains local economies and promotes social justice. It is CAFF’s goal to change the course of agriculture and to do that, we need to influence institutions like the University of California, commodity boards, state and federal agencies and legislators who set public policy. Each of these institutions has a tremendous impact on food and farming issues. We’re proud of our history of successful legislative efforts.

Currently CAFF’s policy program is addressing the following issues:


CAFF tracks legislation in Sacramento and at times takes positions on bills of interest to our family farmer constituency. To follow current legislation: CA State Legislation

CAFF is developing general policy positions on selected topics: CAFF’s Policy Positions
