NEFU works on federal, state and local policy issues for the benefit of our members and of family agriculture.
On the federal farm bill we seek effective policies and programs that serve the small, mid-sized and diversified family farms of New England. NEFU works on the annual agricultural appropriations process to ensure adequate funding for working lands conservation and many of the programs essential to support a local and regional food system. We also comment on proposed rules, meet with USDA officials and communicate with our delegation about how programs and policies are being implemented on the ground.
We participate in state and local issues that serve our members and meet our policy goals.
