3 CA Bills Supporting Family Farms Head to Sacramento

This year, we at CAFF & The Farmers Guild are co-sponsoring and supporting three bills that, if passed, would help family farmers thrive, ensure healthy local food and promote sustainable agriculture. Will you join us in telling your state representatives to support these import bills? It only takes a moment. Find the contact info of your assembly member below.
