Today, the farmers we know are some of the most powerful, creative people in the valley. However, farming is challenged by many pressures: the economy, real estate values and climate change, just for starters. Farmers can use our help and support--that's why we're doing the Stick to Local Farms project. When you share information about our project, you're helping support local farming, too.

Below are links to background information and photographs of the Stick to Local Foods projects. Please don't hesitate to contact us, we love talking about farming and food.
