Lastly, as always, it is most important to:
1. If you belong to an organization, please ask them to support.
2. Please contact your legislators. If you don’t know your district, check here.
Tell them this is important to you and the community.
3. Ask your farmers markets to support. Draw connections.
4. Please contact your county commissioners and county executive. They all support farmland preservation. This is a wonderful way to preserve farmland and keep small farmers working the land. Ask for their support. You can tell them this is a sound investment. It keeps farmers on their land, farming the land, producing agricultural products for their communities. Small farmers are the emerging trend in the local farm economy. We need to modernize the tax code to reflect this.
5. Share this webpage http://weneedsmallfarms.wordpress.com/ with your friends. Forward to farmers you know, grocers, restaurants, local papers.
