I know from personal experience that huge financial barriers exist for family farmers. I think we can help create a better platform for the small family farm.
Put the Farmer back in the DFL Democratic-Farmer-Labor party.
We need representation that understands what farming means to the farm family. It's in our blood, and it's a way of life, a way of living that cares for the land and conserves its resources.
Cutting the Red Tape
We need to cut those barriers and invest in keeping our family farms in the family. We can do that by creating state grants and tax credits for small farms that practice restorative agriculture, expanding the Beginning Farmers Tax Credit, and cut through the red tape that prevents farmers from selling their products and processing them into other goods.
