Sustainable Agriculture

Without farms, we have no food. We rely on agriculture to sustain us and yet we have built a food system that is broken. Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations are unhealthy for humans, animals and the environment. We have let a short-term financial bottom line direct a system that we need to sustain our generation and our great-grandchildren's. Our school lunch programs are built on sugar and calories rather than nutrients and knowledge. We live disconnected from the soil and unaware of the source of many of our social problems. Childhood obesity, unaffordable healthcare costs, global climate change are all issues that connect back to our need for an integrated, sustainable agriculture.

We look to invest in this future.
