Community Farm Alliance (CFA)

CFA organizes and encourages cooperation among rural and urban citizens, through leadership development and grassroots democratic processes, to ensure an essential, prosperous place for family-scale agriculture in our economies and communities.

CFA members believe that the prosperity of rural and urban communities are linked and that economic development must include rural and urban citizens working together; that agriculture can be founded on traditional values and sustainable farming methods; and that the independent family farmers are the most reliable, efficient, careful producers of food and fiber for our citizens and provide a foundation for strong communities.
