Community Alliance with Family Farms

Sustainable communities are rooted in local farms and food production -- fresh, sustaining, organic, soil conserving -- local and urban agriculture are vital to California's sustainability.

Find green business solutions
Community Alliance with Family Farms (CAFF), partners with the National Food Routes Network Buy Local Learning Community, to develop the Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign. This program is designed to strengthen regional markets for family farms in California.

Local Ventura County Citrus

Citrus growers in Ventura County, including CAFF’s regional coordinator, are looking into ways to help growers survive the influx of cheap foreign citrus through a local identity campaign. Community Alliance with Family Farms is also working with local growers and the Ventura Unified School District to implement long-term school district sourcing of local citrus, apples and vegetables.

Sonoma County Buy Local Program

The focus of Community Alliance with Family Farms’ fledgling Sonoma County Buy Local campaign is to educate both farmers and consumers about the benefits of local community support for small-scale farmers. Community Alliance with Family Farms’ regional coordinator in Sonoma County has produced a “Buy Local” flyer for distribution in local retail outlets, farmers’ markets and at public events and is working closely with Community Alliance with Family Farms members and local conservation groups.

Community Alliance with Family Farms’ most critical work is to help small and mid-sized farmers survive the consolidation and globalization of the food system.

Restoration of Local Natural Resources

These farmers provide the essential knowledge, local experience and farming ability to protect and manage natural resources – soil, water, air, land – in the most environmentally appropriate manner.

This irreplaceable knowledge base about our vital environment erodes with every family farm that goes out of business.
