Hello, I’m Sarah Vogel,
author of The Farmer’s Lawyer, a forthcoming memoir about my historic fight as a young single mother against the federal government on behalf of thousands of farmers who were facing foreclosure and being starved off their land. I’m a lifelong advocate for family farmers, small business, women, and Native Americans. I fight for economic democracy and I pride myself on practicing “good guy” law.
How can we restore connections between the land and the people, city and country, red and blue? I think the answer lies with preserving the family farm system of agriculture. Family farm agriculture impacts so much more than the food we eat. Food and farm policy affects every community (rural and urban), the climate, our health, national defense, communities of color, politics, and even our democracy.
