Who We Are

The vision of Our Family Farms is simple -­ we work to create thriving communities by promoting and protecting family farms and traditional seeds from the threats of genetically engineered (GE) crops.

Our Family Farms is an advocate for family farms and traditional seed crops. We work to strengthen local communities by supporting collaboration, legislation and education to create GE-free agricultural zones in the United States and around the world.
