OFRF to Congress: Support Organic Farmers!

April 14, 2015 - OFRF’s policy team is off and running! Looking ahead to the coming year, OFRF Policy Associate Jane Shey has submitted Fiscal Year 2016 funding requests to Congress, seeking increased federal funding for the Organic Transitions Program, National Organic Program, Organic Data Initiative, Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education, Food Safety Outreach Program, and other vital programs supporting U.S. organic farmers.

OFRF is also seeking increased support for non-GMO and non-biotech plant and animal breeding programs, reversing decades of dwindling support for public cultivar development tailored to regional growing conditions and freely available to all farmers.
