Better the farm is a young organization founded in 2017 to replace what was lost when the cherry checkoff program was abolished.  Although initially focused on cherry growers in Montana, we believe our ideas, programs, and events will translate well to other members of the small farming community in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
