Organized by the Real Food Consumer Coalition (RFCC) and partnering groups, A Taste of Small Farm America is an annual grassroots lobby day and legislative reception focused on removing the barriers of access for direct farmer-to-consumer sales.
This event celebrates the abundance of the land and the fruits of our labors. An innovator in the meeting of politics and food, it is a farmers market-style event, including a small-bites reception for our legislators, staffers, and event attendees. This event connects small farmers and consumers with our legislators providing a face and voice to “small farms” and “local foods.”
This year it was held on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 on Capitol Hill, Washington DC conducting meetings with Congressional Representatives and Senators all day and then celebrating our farmers, consumers and lawmakers hard work with a Local Foods Reception in the Senate Dirksen building.

RFCC's mission is to unite communities in preserving access to healthy, safe food
produced by farmers working to restore natural ecosystems.
"We envision farmers—both rural and urban—peacefully feeding and nourishing
their communities from the gifts of the land and, in turn, consumers supporting our
farmers, the land and each other through these inherent connections."
