Support the Next Generation of Sustainable Farmers

An aging farmer population, a new generation of farmers desperate for access to land, and 4.3 million acres of land about to come out of the Conservation Reserve Program together present an opportunity to transform our food system. 

In the last Farm Bill, the sustainable agriculture community successfully created a new program - the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Transtion Option - that offers incentives to land owners enrolled in the CRP to sell or lease the land to beginning and minority producers using sustainable or organic farming practices at the end of their CRP contracts. 

USDA is planning to delay implementation of the CRP Transition Option
for at least two years. 


Tell USDA we can't waste this opportunity. 

Thank You for signing your name to our petition in support of beginning and minority farmers!
