To be a catalyst for the development of self-supporting communities through cooperative economic development, land retention, and advocacy.
Family farmers and rural communities tend to suffer disproportionately in times of disaster and economic hardship. Rural communities have less developed infrastructure, greater distance between people & services, and fewer resources. The greatest needs in times of peril are the need for food water and shelter. Farmers, cooperatives, rural communities, and community-based organizations are there to assist and should be recognized as first responders to meet these needs.
