Mission, Vision, Values
As an organization, Practical Farmers' mission, vision and values are central to the work we do each day.
Strengthening farms and communities through farmer-led investigation and information sharing.
Farms that are prized for their diversity of crops and livestock, their wildlife, healthy soils, innovations, beauty and productivity
Their connection to a rich past and a fulfilling present where individuals and families are earning a good living
Food celebrated for its connections to local farmers, to seasons, to hard work, and good stewardship
Communities alive with diverse connections between farmers and friends of farmers
Places where commerce, cooperation, creativity and spirituality are thriving
Places where the working landscape, the fresh air and the clean water remind us of all that is good about Iowa.
Creativity, collaboration, and community
Viable farms now and for future generations
Stewardship and ecology
