‘Direct From the Farmer’ Gains Ground!
The new government in Poland is responding to our campaign to free-up the drastically repressive food and hygiene regulations that have dogged the Country’s small and medium sized farmers for decades.

However, an International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside campaign to change this position and to free-up Poland’s 1.3 million small family farms to operate autonomously – and to direct-sell their produce locally – is gaining momentum and is not, thus far, seen as being at odds with the agenda of the new government.Read more
