A Twitter party with the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) – 3/21/12

Before I give you any details about the Twitter party, let me give you some very important details about the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA).



  • The U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance is a coalition of more than 70 farmer- and rancher-led organizations and agricultural partners who have come together to open a conversation about how our food is grown and raised.
  • It marks the first time farming and ranching groups at the national, regional and state levels, and our partners, have collaborated to lead the dialogue and answer Americans’ questions about how we raise our food.
  • American farmers and ranchers are stewards of the environment who responsibly care for our land, our animals, and our communities.
  • We believe in farming and ranching that is sustainable, and that continuously improves the health of our planet and grows strong American businesses.
  • Most important, USFRA is committed to solutions that provide healthy choices for people everywhere.
  • The stories and experiences of real farmers and ranchers are often left out of the conversations happening around America about food – USFRA is committed to helping consumers connect with farmers and ranchers to enrich the information available.

About Food Dialogues

  • The USFRA Food Dialogues program involves public forums, local and national events, and an ongoing discussion on the website – all with the goal of creating an open conversation.
  • The Food Dialogues website is managed by USFRA and was created to answer Americans’ questions about how our food is grown and raised.
  • USFRA hopes to bring together differing viewpoints on farming and ranching and the future of food to solve our most challenging problems.
  • Anyone is welcomed to post comments, participate in online conversations, and use hash tag #FoodD to join in the Food Dialogues discussion.
