USDA has launched a new campaign: "Farming for Profit, Stewardship and Community." The educational program offers small-scale farmers and ranchers information on ways to increase farm profits, cut cost, broaden marketing alternatives, protect natural resources and sustain their rural communities.

You can learn more about the concepts from 10 tip sheets available on the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Web site. The tip sheets offer basic information and list resources where you can get more in-depth coverage of topics, like improving soil quality, managing weeds, and adding value through marketing.
