The sale of GM alfalfa in Ontario will affect many small farms by infiltrating the non GM alfalfa crops through cross pollination. This will affect hay production, honey producers, grass fed beef, dairy operations and beyond. Let put a stop to this and take some action. Please join a rally tomorrow in your area or send an email to the Minister of Agriculture and support the small farmers who need your voice and support.
