Policy Positions

Last year, New England Farmers Union identified five priority areas for the farm bill: 1) local and regional food systems, 2) dairy policy for New England, 3) conservation and renewable energy, 4) organic agriculture, and 5) beginning farmers. The 2014 Farm Bill funds many of NEFU’s priority programs at record levels. See NEFU’s Farm Bill Priorities and Gains
