1000EcoFarms is helping break barriers for direct farm-to-consumer sales

1000EcoFarms' mission since the company's founding was to help farmers sell directly to the consumers. Unfortunately, many obstacles exist for such sales, including some that are artificially created by inefficient federal laws and regulations. To help improve the situation, 1000EcoFarms with several partners is organizing A Taste of Small Farm America - an event on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC to connect small farmers and consumers with federal legislators.

A Taste of Small Farm America is a National Grassroots Lobby Day and Legislative Reception that will take place on September 26th, 2018. It's organized by Real Food Consumer Coalition, Organic Consumers Association with the support of Organic and Natural Association, 1000EcoFarms and several other partners. The goal of the event is to inform federal legislators about the issues faced by small sustainable farmers and to help consumers get easy access to safe and nutritional food they want from local sources. The event aims to bring the tastes and experiences of small farmers and food producers to Congress.
