MEMBERSHIP

From the grassroots up, our organization is built by the community for the community, from farmers in the field to neighbors fighting for a more regenerative food system; from fourth generation ranchers to the farmworkers who make our food system possible. We are guided and empowered by people like you to continue our efforts supporting family farms throughout California. Members transform our hopes and ideals into real-world results. Thank you for joining or renewing your membership.

FARM

Our core constituents, FARMS sit at the center of this organization. CAFF’s programs are specifically designed to support family farms in a variety of ways while giving them an amplified voice in Sacramento and D.C.

INDIVIDUAL

To accomplish CAFF’s mission, we need everyday advocates at the grassroots, INDIVIDUALS both on the farm and off who are committed to promoting sustainable agriculture, helping family farms thrive and ensuring a strong local food system in their own community.

CAFF PARTNER

With a shared vision for our food and farming system, PARTNERS empower CAFF’s work. Through collaboration, financial support and outreach, these mission-driven companies and organizations help transform ideas into realities.
