SUPPORTING AMERICAN FARMS & RANCHES
By becoming a CARE member, you are supporting sustainable, American farms and ranches.
Farmers and Ranchers
While farmland may stretch far and wide, farmers and ranchers themselves make up just 1.3% of the employed U.S. population, totaling around 2.6 million people. Today, there are about 2 million farms in operation in the U.S. a steep decline from 1935, when the number of farms peaked at nearly 7 million.
Farmers and ranchers have long been the backbone of their communities. They are responsible for feeding themselves and many others around them, but because of their close relationship with the local land and water sources they can also have a significant on the regional environment. Do you feel like consumers are totally disconnected from the people that grow and raise their food?

There are many packers, processors, distributors and retailers that are also looking for one simply way to engage with their customers about sustainability. At all points in the supply chain, there is a need for sransparency and integrity to upstream supplier sustainability metrics and data sharing. The CARE COOP will provide all CARE Industry Partners with a seamless supplier certification status and validation for consumers.
