We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker, Debra Eschmeyer, Vice President of Communications & Community Affairs, Danone North America.

As Executive Director of Let's Move!, Debra led First Lady Michelle Obama's work to help America raise a healthier generation of kids. During her tenure as Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy, she advised the Obama Administration on food, agriculture, and nutrition issues. An organic farmer and recipient of the James Beard Foundation Leadership Award in 2011, Debra will share her infectious vision for changing the way we eat and think about food and organic farming.

Organic Voices on the Hill

As the Farm Bill debate continues, OFRF has been working to ensure that the voices of organic farmers, and those that support organic farming, are being heard by members of Congress. With several key programs that support organic farming without permanent funding, it is vital that members of Congress hear from constituents about the importance of supporting organic agriculture in the upcoming Farm Bill.

New Videos from NRCS Focus on Organic Practices

A new series of videos is now available from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) on organic farming topics, ranging from healthy soil to pasture management. The first video in the series provides an overview of organic agriculture and the assistance NRCS offers to organic and transitioning farmers and ranchers.
