Fair Farms just released our newest video—The Future of Food—in partnership with the Click & Pledge Foundation’s “The Next Generation” project. Campaign Manager Shelby Kalm brings to the screen untold stories of Fair Farms partners who are creating a food system that nourishes the environment and sustainably feeds their communities. The farmers that we spoke with touched on the importance of sourcing local products and how consumers impact rural and urban farmers.
Many of our farm partners are small, family-owned operations. They are committed to farming with sustainability in mind, whether it be through pesticide-free practices, stormwater retention, or other methods. Even though they may have different farming practices, all of these farmers can agree on one thing – consumers have more power than they realize. By supporting local farms, we can ensure that we are working to create a food system that builds up our local economy and improves the health of our communities.
