Routes to Farm strives to help organizations help farmers.
We are comprised of organizations that directly serve farmers and which offer programming or services that nurture, train and/or promote the viability of farms by:
- Providing assistance to farmers in the Chicago foodshed, defined as farmers within 400 miles of Chicago;
- Defragmenting the resources that are available to farmers through close collaboration and coordination; and
- Highlighting farming practices that are healthy, humane, fair, sustainable, and products that are locally sourced and sold.
