If you buy food from small local farmers, if fresh local food is important to you, then please tell Commissioner Putnam to keep it up and keep going!
The Florida Dept. of Agriculture's Small Farm Subcommittee has recommended changes to minimize costs for small farms while ensuring food safety. This is a great step towards "right-sizing regulations" that impact Florida's small farmers.
We want to thank Commissioner Putnam for paying attention to small farmers and strongly encourage him to implement both Subcommittee recommendations and key input from small farm experts.
By driving Healthy Schools for Healthy Lives and continuing the work of the Food Safety and Food Defense Advisory Council Small Farm Subcommittee, your administration has shown critical support for small farm enterprises. This will ensure that hard working small farmers not only provide safe healthy food to their communities, but also make a healthy profit and sustainable living.
Keep up the good work! Please continue to support opportunities and “right-size” regulations that impact small farm enterprises in our great state.
