About Save Family Farming:
Save Family Farming, a 501(c)(5) non-profit organization, is the unified voice of Washington’s family farmers. Our unique role is to reach out to the non-farming public to build a better understanding of what our family farmers are doing to grow and produce great food in a way that consumers today expect. Our farmers, with very few exceptions, are environmental stewards and leaders, excellent employers who care for and protect the interests of their employees, and caretakers who treat animals with respect and dignity. As more voices in our polarized world speak out against “industrial agriculture” and “factory farming”, we work to set the record straight at the statewide level and with our local affiliates.
