Hawaii becomes first state to approve tax credit for organic farmers!

By passing unprecedented legislation that will allocate $2 million in state-funded tax credits for certified organic food production, the Hawai’i state legislature and Governor David Ige stepped up to fulfill their responsibility to support local food self-sufficiency.

This landmark bill would not have been possible without allies in the legislature fighting to ensure a healthy, viable food future for Hawai’i. Click here to support Center for Food Safety Action Fund, so more amazing things can happen for hardworking farmers!
