As the farm bill moves closer to completion, an ad campaign depicting life on the farm is under way to show Washington the importance of agriculture in America.

Farm Policy Facts, a diverse coalition of agricultural organizations, launched the “Real Farms, Real Families.” campaign last week, with ads running in Roll Call, The National Journal, the Washington Post, The Hill, and Financial Times.

Instead of using actors, the coalition’s campaign uses photos taken by farmers and farming advocates to show how important American farmers are to economic recovery and national security.
