Alternet - 1/24/2013.
By Katherine Paul, Ronnie Cummins - How do you keep consumers in the dark about the horrors of factory farms?

National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition - 1/24/2013.
On Thursday, USDA published a notice in the Federal Register reminding the 16 states eligible for the Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) program to submit their application by February 7 for federal assistance in order to be able to provide cost-share assistance to their certified organic farmers. Those 16 states - the 12 Northeast states plus HI, NV, UT, and WY - will divide $1.5 million among their State Departments of Agriculture. Farmers in the 34 states not eligible for the AMA program are out of luck.
