Stand With Farmers

The people who grow our food deserve to make a fair living. But that’s out of reach for the livestock and poultry farmers working in an industry where the power of giant corporations leaves them trapped in a rigged marketplace, vulnerable to abusive business practices.

We’ve partnered with other farm and rural advocates to stand with farmers by creating a petition for the USDA with four simple demands. This week, we’ll deliver the petition and we hope you’ll add your name to the more than 80,000 people who have signed on so far.


On the Farm Aid hotline, we hear from many farmers and ranchers who are barely hanging on in this system. They work hard to grow our food, yet they struggle to feed their own families.

In the coming weeks, the USDA will release a rule aimed at protecting basic rights for livestock and poultry farmers that most of us take for granted – rights like the freedom of speech and the freedom to join together in association.

We’re asking you to stand by farmers and let the USDA know you want strong safeguards to give farmers a fighting chance against corporate power.
