Farming & the Environment

If you’ve driven around Iowa, you’ve noticed row after row of long metal buildings. These are factory farms run by giant corporations. Decades ago, these were all small family farms.

Today, Iowans are in a pitched battle to save our family farms and ensure that our state has good local food and vibrant communities for generations to come.

We can’t sit this battle out.

It’s time to choose between family farms or low-wage, corporate factories run by absentee investors; between healthy food or salmonella outbreaks; between clean water or polluted rivers.
