Your Signature Needed: Tell Congress To Support Organic Farmers

Like a lot of other families, we’ve been buying more and more organic foods over the last few years. We buy about 90% of our meat and chicken organic {I’m a vegetarian, but the rest of my family are meat eaters} and we’ve been buying only organic milk and eggs for the last two years. We often purchase organic produce as well. We’re currently buying 75% more organic food than we were two years ago.

Anyone with an internet connection can do the research on how our food is grown, and what’s in it. Social media sites are buzzing with information on GMO’s, pesticides and food ingredients. It’s a topic people are talking about, and that’s a very good thing.

Take it one step further and your signature to this TakePart petition. By signing this, you will make a statement that you want your tax dollars to go towards organic research and family farms.

Congress will soon vote on a new farm bill, which has the greatest impact on the foods we eat. Last month over sixty independent family farmers from across the country met with their legislators in Washington. They shared their stories and urged Congress to restore funding for sustainable agricultural programs.

This petition will be sent to Frank D. Lucas, Chairmain of the House Committee on Agriculture and Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.

Please sign and be heard! All our signatures are needed. Thank you, from my family to yours.
