NOFA's 2023 Farm Bill Principles Platform

The NOFA state chapters have developed six Farm Bill principles advocating for a Farm Bill that:


  1. Invests in and protects the integrity of organic and agroecological practices as a core solution to our climate and biological crises.

  2. Ensures fair treatment and just livelihoods for farmers and workers throughout the food and farming system.

  3. Invests in rural communities, increases fairness and resilience of local and regional supply chains and breaks up consolidation in agriculture.

  4. Centers racial justice across all programs and repairs past and ongoing racialized harm.

  5. Promotes food sovereignty for disadvantaged communities and ensures nutrition security for all.

  6. Eliminates the use of toxic substances on farmland and in our food system while supporting a just transition for farmers.
