Over 90% of California's farms and ranches are family-owned businesses; however, many struggle to keep their farms in existence. To help resolve this issue, the Community Alliance with Family Farmers works directly with regional members, particularly family farmers, to increase the use and consumption of fresh, healthy, local food, and to help growers prosper. The connections CAFF creates between farmers and the food chain network focus not only on building relationships between sellers and buyers, but also provide technical support through production planning, relationship brokering, local product line development, and food safety plans. Ultimately, CAFF's goal is to strengthen family farms, which are the cornerstone of healthy and economically viable communities.
