Why Small Acreages Matter
Thriving small scale agriculture and vibrant local food systems foster small business opportunities, income production, healthy people and increased individual and community food security.
Rural and urban farms, as well as school, home and community gardens provide access to diversified sources of food for consumers and to communities, neighborhoods or individuals with limited access to fresh, healthful and affordable food.
