We believe that the heart of sustainable agriculture is in the integrity of the farmer.
The Farmer’s PledgeTM is a commitment to a broad set of farming principles that address labor issues, production practices, community values, and marketing. Currently, more than 100 farmers within New York State have made a commitment to these principles by signing The Farmer’s PledgeTM.
