In Your Community


The effects of our local farmers and ranchers can be seen in all of our communities. From urban farms in Sacramento, to strawberry stands in Folsom, and the downtown Farmers Market, we are touched by what is grown and raised right here. Family farmers continue to face economic and urban pressures and many are forced to leave the land. When family farms leave the land, the quality of our food, the health of our soil and water, and the strength of our local economy are at stake. You can help with putting the food on your fork by joining our farm community. Join today as an Associate Member!
