This bill is long overdue - and hopefully includes easier procedures and eliminates fees for small farmers to register as an 'Organic Production'.

Small-scale farming and buying local are the only answers to changing the inhumane treatments of animals of Big Corps.

The small farmer is heading toward extinction, unfortunately.

We can all do our part, to help prevent this, by purchasing from locals farm stands, as soon as they open. I am in anxious anticipation. You can't question the freshness.

I was raised on a small family farm - they have my support 100%! It's a way of life. I support small farmers by buying their produce whenever I find it, even though it sometimes is a little more money. I find that generally it is worth the slightly extra cost.
