We build sustainable food and farming systems through policy advocacy and on-the-ground programs that create more resilient family farms, communities and ecosystems.

FARM-TO-MARKET

We connect farms with businesses, providing growers with a suite of practical services—from food safety assistance to coordinating institutional purchasing—to ensure supply and demand grow together.

ECOLOGICAL FARMING

We work with farms to reduce the ag sector’s carbon footprint by promoting a suite of on-farm practices—from cover crops to reduced tillage to hedgerows—that lower emissions and sequester carbon.

POLICY

We are the voice of sustainable agriculture in Sacramento. For 40 years, we've been advocating for state and national policies that create more resilient family farms, communities and ecosystems.

SMALL FARM CONFERENCE

Since 1982, the California Small Farm Conference has convened farmers and ag advocates to share resources, trade best practices, learn, and collectively advocate for family farms in their community.

OUR COMMUNITY

From the grassroots up, our organization is built by the community for the community, from farmers in the field to citizens fighting for a more just, regenerative food system, from fourth generation ranchers to the farmworkers who make our food system possible. Members comprise the foundation of our work; we are guided and empowered by people like you to continue our efforts supporting family farms throughout California.
