We would love it if you would consider buying one of our brand new t-shirts, which will help to keep us operating and moving forward with our mission. Support small farms and support local food.

Just played a bit of catch up. Below you can see a bunch of blog posts by MSFC President, Wendy Banka, from her personal webpage. She began this group of blogs on March 1st, with the intent of blogging daily leading up to the March 20th meeting where the Ag Commission will vote on proposed GAAMPs changes. I encourage everyone to go check out the blog posts, as well as the other content on her page. She has done a lot of research, and has a ton of good information and documentation related to Michigan Right To Farm issues. Just about anything you could want to know is there.

Additionally, check out our Facebook page. I regret that I haven't kept up with the g+ page as well as Facebook. Lots of good discussions going on there.

Picking Sides, a post on what the arguments are on either side of the debate about whether RTF currently protects small farms in residentially zoned areas, and why it matters in the current debate on the 2014 GAAMPs.
