U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) -- a unique organization that is a collaboration of nearly 80 farmer- and rancher-led organizations and agricultural partners -- has started a movement to bring more local farmers and ranchers together to answer people’s questions about how their food is grown and raised. Many voices are leading conversations about food – and often leaving the people who grow and raise our food out.

It’s time for farmers and ranchers to take center stage and stop letting other people pretend to represent agriculture. We need a national face to be part of these conversations and represent the real farmers and ranchers of America.

You can be one of the national Faces of Farming and Ranching.

USFRA is looking for 4-5 standout farmers and ranchers who are proud of what they do, eager to share their stories of continuous improvement with others and are actively involved today in sharing those stories. Farmers and ranchers who raise a variety of foods differently, at differing scale and in all areas of the country are encouraged to apply as it is important to show American agriculture and all of its diversity.

Go to to enter by September 8. Finalists will be announced during the November Food Dialogues event in New York City. The winners will be announced in early January 2013 and will receive professional media/speaker training, a $10,000 stipend (to help cover expenses at home while they are serving as a 2013 Face of Farming and Ranching), and a $5,000 USFRA-approved donation to an ag-related charity or local charity of their choice in their name.

With your help, we can continue building the movement toward creating a stronger dialogue between farmers/ranchers and people who are interested in where their food comes from.
