Welcome to The National Latino Farmers & Ranchers
National Latino Farmers Association & Ranchers Trade Association
The National Latino Farmers & Ranchers Trade ASSOCIATION was founded in August of 2004 in Washington, D.C as the National Association of Latino/Hispanic Farmers & Ranchers. This alliance of Latino advocacy groups evolved from a long soul searching ordeal & after working with many farmer and farmworker advocacy groups for several years.
