What farmers are saying about CAFF:
“At Bloomfield Organics it’s rare to find a true partner that helps our family farm survive and thrive. And CAFF is one of the few organizations that we truly call a partner. As a member of CAFF we receive a ton of value, both measurable and immeasurable.
First, CAFF helps us sell! We have recently forged a partnership with the Santa Rosa City Schools which is incorporating our produce into their farm-2-school meal program. As a farm looking to make a difference in the community and make a living this partnership is great because we are able to earn consistent high-volume business at a fair price and, at the same time, make sure the next generation is getting the good stuff!
Next, CAFF listens. Through their regular meetings as well as personal, on-farm visits CAFF listens to our needs. And pretty much everytime we see those needs reflected in the work the CAFF team does to create value for our farm and others in the region. And this isn’t just sales but legislative advocacy, first-class activism and a continually improving educational program. How many organizations can you say that about?
Through its many programs, CAFF helped us improve our operations immensely. The training programs such as the Food Safety Plan Certification involves trusted, farm-friendly experts coming out to the farm to help us evaluate our operations and in a non-judgmental way, help us identify ways to improve. This is a big deal. It’s hard to find affordable, trusted partners who can help us become the best farm possible. And CAFF is getting it done for us.
For a small farm like ours, we see CAFF as a long term partner instrumental in our growth and development. Out of all the organizations asking for annual membership fees, a CAFF membership, along with a few others, is a total no-brainer.”
