Calyb Hare is a young farmer with long-standing family ties to the land. He grows a variety of vegetables for his CSA on a small, diversified farm in coastal North Carolina. In 2015, he received a grant from our Agricultural Reinvestment Fund to help expand his production of heirloom beans and create a shelf-stable dried and packaged bean product for local and regional markets.
RAFI brought 10 farmers to Capitol Hill to debut a preview version of our documentary that features their stories, Under Contract. Farmers also met with their legislators to demand fairness and urge their support of the Farmer Fair Practice Rules, aka GIPSA rules.
