FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (TOFGA) today announced its Disaster Relief Fund to support farmers and ranchers who have suffered due to the recent wildfires and severe drought. "Our members are small family farms and ranches that cannot absorb the losses from these disastrous fires and drought conditions," said Sue Beckwith president of TOFGA.
TOFGA urges every Texan to support sustainable family farmers. "Texas does not have enough farmers who are producing clean and safe food for our families," said Brad Stufflebeam of Home Sweet Farm, a farm in Brenham that supplies fresh produce to families in Houston. "We can't afford to lose any local producers."
Farmers in Iowa are donating certified organic hay to help Texas farmers. "This is an incredible gift," stated Cameron Molberg, General Manager of Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill in Elgin. "We need to raise the money to pay for trucking to get it down here."
