Congressional Candidate Kahn (G) Delivers Plan for Vibrant Family Farm Economy
SCHROON LAKE, N.Y. - July 10, 2018 -- Agriculture is a major component of our economy, history and culture. Sadly, our family farms and rural businesses are losing the battle against falling commodity prices, well-funded industrial and international farming, federal supports below the cost of production, and both infrastructure and bureaucratic failures. We need creative solutions and community input to build a vibrant family farm economy or an entire way of life in our rural communities will disappear along with local control and consumer choice.
Kahn's Strategic Plan is organized around four goals:
Goal 1: Grow Vibrant Family Farm Economy calls for emergency government relief; legislative hearings; a Family Farm Economic Plan; and funds to deliver and staff tables with Adirondack products at major New York fairs and festivals.
Goal 2: Strengthen Community Support and Resources intends to map and expand banking resources and mental health services specifically for family farms and related local businesses.
Goal 3: Strengthen Partnerships with Community, Government and Business seeks stronger presence in restaurants and food markets.
Goal 4: Improve Communication includes educational and marketing actions.
