Farmer Advisory Council

Our Farmer Advisory Council

Fair Farms appreciates the time and input of its Farmer Advisory Council. These farmers embody the principles of sustainability and work to educate the Campaign on the unique challenges facing farmers in their efforts to be responsible stewards of animals, land, water and air. They also provide feedback and guidance on campaign goals, objectives, and strategies and alert us to opportunities to support the sustainable farming community.
