Please join us Tuesday as we bring the voices of Kansas Family Farms to Topeka!
It is important for farmers, ranchers, and rural Kansans to advocate on behalf of legislation that benefits family farms and rural communities.
It is equally important for those individuals to speak out against legislation that does direct harm to those same family farms and rural communities.
As our legislators debate the direction of our state, we need YOUR VOICE to be heard.
