and those of you watching Food Inc. know that food safety regulations are a high priority for the obama administration. Unfortunately, to be quite succinct about it, the fox is still in the henhouse and anti- organic, anti-small farm wording is all too common. Those of you who live in california might remember the leafy green debacle where essentially all riparian vegetation (read: natural stream buffers, butterfly habitat)  were to be banned.  Its complicated, and these food safety regulations are moving forward and have a real potential of impacting your farm business.  Here is the source to learn more and take action, and encourage your CSA members to get informed and take action as well:  www.nationalorganiccoalition.org
