Make Sure Ohio’s Budget Supports Beginning Farmers

Make Sure Ohio’s Budget Supports Beginning Farmers
 
This week, Ohio legislators will be deciding on the state’s budget for the next two years. What is—and isn’t—included in that budget has a big impact on our future.
   
We need you now to deliver an important message to ensure that budget supports next generation farmers.
   
Please call your state Senator and ask them to support the Beginning Farmer Tax Credit. 
   
Also known as the Family Farm Regeneration Act, this credit will help next generation farmers overcome hurdles in connecting with farmland and make it easier for existing landowners to make that transfer to beginning farmers. Existing farmers that want to see their land farmed for generations to come would receive a tax credit if they sell or lease agricultural assets to newer farmers.
   
Learn more about this legislation and its benefits to farmers and farmland preservation here.
   
As our farmers age out of agriculture, we need to be proactive in preserving our food security and all of the health, economic, and social benefits that farming provides.
   
Find your state Senator here and call today!
