FCS Diversity and Inclusion - PROPOSED RULE - MARCH 2011 Dear Mr. Van Meter,
As a small-scale vegetable farmer a am very supportive of the idea of expanding farm financing to farmers and producers who sell locally.
A large percentage of the new generation of farmers who sell locally are first generation and don't inherit the costly infrastructure and land. We are starting from scratch. Thank you for your consideration, Dan Phelps Lawrence, KS
