FCS Diversity and Inclusion - PROPOSED RULE - MARCH 2011
Mr. Van Meter,
Please change your rules such that smaller farmers who sell their produce locally can get assistance.
Small market farming is ideal for stay-at-home Moms so that they can manage their own schedules, take better care of their children, and feed their family better, rather than dealing with daycare and bosses who fail to promote talented women who have family responsibilities.
Also, it is imperative that we produce more food locally and not rely on the few major food companies that are now international monopolies that couldn’t care less about the little guy. Being able to produce our own food is more important than having guns to protect ourselves.
