Katie Jantzen is one such farmer. The fifth generation on her family farm, she grows produce, some of it to sell at farmers markets. Farmers markets stimulate local economies, increase access to fresh, healthy food, promote sustainable farming practices that protect our water and soil, and preserve our farmland. However, none of these benefits are possible without farmers like Katie. For many family farmers to succeed, particularly those new to agriculture, they count on their neighbors to shop regularly at market. Farmers markets provide one of the only low-barrier entry points for new farmers, ranchers, and food entrepreneurs, allowing them to start small and test new products. According to a 2017 National Young Farmers Coalition survey, farmers markets "- and Community-Supported Agriculture represented the highest proportion of new and beginning farmers' sales. This support is important, as there are currently 3.5 times as many U.S. farmers over age 65 as there are under 35. At traditional food outlets, farmers and ranchers receive only 15 cents of every food dollar that consumers spend, according to the Farmers Market Coalition. At a farmers market, 100 percent of your food dollar goes to your local farmer. Find your market in USDA's national directory (there are 8,768 markets across the U.S.) at ams.usda.gov/local-food-directories/farmersmarkets, and join us in supporting farmers like Katie while we celebrate National Farmers Marke Week, which is this week through August 10th. Established in 1973, the Center for Rural Affairs is a private, non-profit organization working to strengthen small businesses, family farms and ranches, and rural communities through action oriented programs addressing social, economic, and environmental issues. 4th Donors The Norwalk Lions Club wishes to thank the following local businesses and individuals who supported our very successful July 4th event, through sponsorships, donations, and raffle prizes to the-Lions Club: 3-D Farms-Tom Dunn 4 Season Nails & Spa 804 Main Accounting & Tax Solutions Ace Cappe] Hardware Ad- 6nture Lighting Airport Signs & Graphics Admre Pets Athletico Hildreth G arage Iowa Cubs Jim Watts Johnson Photography Kansas City Royals Cortum Inc Kelly i.
