About Us


United States food and agriculture policies currently enable a handful of the world’s largest corporations to control our food and farming system at the expense of farmers, workers, and all of us who eat.


Farm Action Fund is building the political muscle to stop corporate monopolies, hold government accountable, and build fair competition in rural America.


We envision a fair, sustainable, and healthy food system that empowers farmers, workers, and rural communities to feed their neighbors.


We are bold in our actions and relentless in our pursuit of a food and agriculture system that works for everyone, not just a handful of powerful corporations. We work collaboratively to build the strength to win this fight, and we act with uncompromising honesty and integrity in our work.

Our Approach

Farm Action Fund team members have a proven track record of success and are tested leaders in the food and farm community. Here’s how we deliver big wins for America’s farmers, workers, and rural communities:

  • Education: Our success rests on a solid foundation of research, and is driven by our ability to develop complex issues into accessible blogs, videos, graphics, and other educational tools for the press and the general public. In the past year, our work was featured in more than 2,500 news stories, including every major media outlet.
  • Collaboration: Farm Action Fund brings together a broad, diverse group of unlikely allies to build the capacity to challenge the world’s largest corporations. We lead and participate in 15 different coalitions to facilitate this collaboration.
  • Leadership: Farm Action Fund’s Local Leaders program trains and empowers individuals to take strategic action. Local Leaders are a reliable resource for national journalists, researchers, policymakers, and their own communities.
  • Policy Reform: Farm Action Fund has earned the respect of key members of Congress and the White House. Our policy recommendations have been developed into 20 different pieces of Congressional legislation, and our policy roadmap for the White House served as the “playbook” for President’s Biden’s agriculture directives in the Executive Order on Competition.

Our Origin Story

Building the Political Muscle to Stop Abusive Corporate Monopoly Power

From unfair agriculture markets to worker abuses, inhumane animal conditions, and environmental degradation, we recognized a common theme in our food and agriculture system: at the root of all these issues lies monopolistic corporate control, impacting every one of us. 

By connecting and supporting unlikely allies, we spread awareness that abusive corporate power is the common adversary to a resilient and just food and agriculture system. Our mission keeps the interconnectedness of the land, animals, workers, farmers, ranchers, and communities at the forefront of this fight.

Farm Action Fund takes the fight to our capitols and the ballot box by supporting policies that dismantle industrial agriculture and shift power into the hands of individuals all along the food supply chain. Headquartered in Missouri, we are a political nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization. Farm Action, a tax-deductible charitable 501(c)(3) organization, is our research and education affiliate.

Together, our two organizations represent a seamless chain of action from research and policy development, to the adoption of the policy through legislative action by elected officials who support our vision.
