Organic Farmers Association thanks Farm Aid for their support!





Kutztown, PA — Organic Farmers Association was awarded a $6,500 grant from Farm Aid to support grassroots farmer-led work to build power and consensus among the organic farmer community to preserve organic integrity, support more U.S. organic acres and increase environmental services.


Organic Farmers Association thanks Farm Aid for their continued support of our work to provide organic farmers with a strong voice in Washington, D.C.


Farm Aid’s grantmaking is focused on work that enhances the viability of family farm agriculture in the United States. They issue grants to qualifying nonprofit organizations that serve family farmers in one of three funding areas: growing the good food movement, helping farmers thrive and taking action to change the food and farm system. This grant will allow Organic Farmers Association to provide organic farmers with a strong voice in Washington, D.C. .


“In addition to Farm Aid’s work throughout the year to build a thriving family farm-centered system of agriculture, Farm Aid funds family farm, rural service and urban agriculture organizations through our annual grant program,” said Alicia Harvie, Farm Aid’s Advocacy & Farmer Services Director. “Our grantees around the country are critical on-the-ground partners in the movement to keep family farmers on the land, producing good food for all.”


“Our goal is to create real change in our farm and food system, from the ground up,” said Farm Aid President Willie Nelson. “Farm Aid grantees strengthen family farmers, they build communities that can support each other in hard times, and they organize people to stand up and challenge corporate power in our food system. These are essential activities that benefit everyone — eaters and farmers.”
