The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in the Farm Bill

The National Organic Certification Cost Share Program, the Country of Origin Labeling program, and states’ rights to protect their environment and citizens from pesticides and GMOs are some of the measures threatened by the new version of the Farm Bill, currently in conference committee negotiations.  Those who care deeply about the quality and health of the food we eat and believe in our right to determine what goes into it have much cause for concern.

For more on the good, bad and ugly in the Farm Bill and how you can join the efforts to protect our farm lands, the organic sector, and human rights including our right to know what’s in our food and make choices accordingly – check out this page from the Center for Food Safety and sign the letter to your elected officials.
