1043-43 dated July 9, 1997, established the National Commission on
Small Farms (Commission) and further identified the Natural Resources
Conservation Service to provide support to the Commission. The purpose
of the Commission is to gather and analyze information regarding small
farms and ranches and recommend to the Secretary of Agriculture a
national policy and strategy to ensure their continued viability. The
Commission's next meeting is October 14 and 15, 1997.
The USDA/NOP cost may hurt the small organic farmer and handlers and they
should rethink the $5000 and raise add a 0 to the end . They should say
$50000 in farm sells to be fair to the small farmer and handlers
