|    NORTH CENTRAL REGION SMALL FARM TASK FORCE|
Small farm families clearly need this information so they can explore alternatives to traditional enterprises and ways to fit new alternatives into sustainable whole- farm systems. The 1997 USDA Commission on Small Farms hearings confirmed that traditional agricultural extension programs are not meeting the needs of those on small farms. One of the Commission's major recommendations was to Emphasize Sustainable Agriculture as a Profitable, Ecological and Socially Sound Strategy for Small Farms. The Sustainable Small Farm Information Network will represent a significant positive response to this recommendation in the North Central region.
