Support Florida’s Black Farmers & Agriculturialist

The Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association –Florida chapter was formed under the national Black Farmers and Agriculturalist Association or­ganization of Tillary, North Carolina. The Florida chapter was organized as a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) corporation on April 2, 2011.

Where are we now?

Currently, 23 lawsuits have been filed on behalf of more than 35,000 African-American farmers seeking relief under the Farm Bill. All of these actions have been consolidated into a single case called Black Farmers Discrimination Litigation, 08-mc­0511 (D.D.C.), which was initially approved by Judge Paul L. Friedman on May 13, 2011 in the U.S. District Court for the Dis­trict of Columbia.

We sincerely appreciate any tax-deductible contributions you can afford. Our organization is working diligently to recruit new farmers and to help strengthen advocacy for economic and political issues affecting farmers all across the world.

Because You Never Know How Far Your Gift Can Reach . . .

Why Give to Support Your Local Black Farmers & Agriculturialist?

Because we need yor support to expand community gardens and farming for every family in America. Your contributions will help us remain profitable, sustainable and afford us the opportunity to build capaciity for new farmers and inter-generational activities necessary for a mass return to the land to pick up where our ancestors left off.

Network Buyer Club

In 1920, one in every seven farmers in the United States was Black.  Together, they owned nearly 14 million acres. By 1982, however, Black farmers numbered one in 67, together owning only 3.1 million acres.

Racism, violence and massive migration from the rural South to the industrialized North caused a steady decline in the number of Black farmers.

In 2015, after nearly 100 years, a great migration reversal back to the South began.  College grads and retirees are leading the return of blacks to the South. Perhaps, they will return to reclaim the legacy of farming.
