This is the presentation from NIFTI Webinar 15, which explores how local food policy efforts can raise awareness of the needs of beginning farmers and create conditions favorable to help new farm businesses succeed. Advocates from three organizations will describe their recent initiatives and successes to support beginning farmers as well as provide tips on how to make the next generation of farmers and ranchers a policy priority.
