Just Foods


The consensus is that times have changed in recent years, but our values haven’t. We believe in a world where everyone has the opportunity to succeed. Our nation was founded on that principle, and we’ve worked hard to make it a reality as we build a society that values everyone equally. As an agricultural nonprofit organization, we work everyday to make sure those fundamental principles hold true for thousands of family farmers. But we know first hand that our work is far from over.

A Friend to Farmers in All Seasons

We also appreciate their willingness to let us use their farm as a living, natural laboratory to experiment with incorporating these types of crops onto working farmland.

This has been a crucial year for the fight against an agribusiness-dominated food system. Looking back over 2014, we are reminded of how many people have come together to help create the just and sustainable agricultural community that we envision. We are proud of the accomplishments that came out of our work this year, and we will continue to work together to cultivate markets, policies, and communities that support thriving, socially just, and environmentally sound family farms. 2015 will be essential in our efforts to challenge the influence of big agribusiness and sustain our growing movement for just and sustainable agriculture. This will require courage and persistence across the board, on all levels...
