Win a Fair Farm Bill & Farm Prizes! 

Here at the National Young Farmers’ Coalition, we’re fighting to protect programs in the Farm Bill that support beginning farmers and ranchers. We’re creating a breeding ground for innovative on-farm problem solving with Farm Hack. And we’re building a national network of local young farmer chapters that share resources and collectively organize.

We need your help to do this work– whether you’re a beginning farmer or rancher, seasoned grower, farm advocate, or conscious consumer. Luckily for you, every supporter who donates to NYFC in the month of December will be entered to win one of over 50 farm prizes!

Here’s what you can win:

 1001-B plants at precise depth, a precise spacing, and covers and packs all in one operation.
