Community Alliance with Family Farmers

The <a href="http://www.caff.org" target="_blank" style="color:#c08434;"><b>Community Alliance with Family Farmers</b></a> is building a movement of rural and urban people to foster family-scale agriculture that cares for the land, sustains local economies and promotes social justice. CAFF, in partnership with the National Food Routes Network, has developed the Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign campaign as a pilot program to strengthen regional markets for family farms. <br><br> Regional Buy Local campaigns address many of the problems faced by family owned farms. These include economic viability and creating market linkages. CAFF is working with schools, farmers markets, retailers, institutions, CSAs and restaurants to increase the visibility and viability of local food systems. <br><br> For more information, please visit <a href="http://www.caff.org" target="_blank" style="color:#c08434;"><b>caff.org</b></a>
