It started with a thought one day in 1952 in Atlanta, Texas. Taking a cue from Louis Bromfield's, "Friends of the Land," Robert Rowe, a former broadcaster and farmer, led a group of physicians and laymen, concerned with present -day farming practices and it's relationship to good nutrition and health. After a short stay as the first NFA leader, he passed the baton to Dr. Joe Nichols, who in turn, toured the country and created a powerhouse organization, telling the story of proper farming for healthy nutrition for human consumption. The NFA constitution was adopted on Feb. 21, 1953, in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Joe Nichols, Joe Francis and Thomas Lavin & Royal Lee, DDS, (President of The Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research.) were active in the original organization. The Lee Foundation was a non-profit sales organization dealing in environmentally safe products. We had a chapter of NFA in Everett, Washington, with Dr. Holderby from Goldendale, Wa. as our president. We had weekly meetings and also held conventions in Seattle and Everett. Dr. Holderby brought produce from his large organic garden to our conventions. ~~~~~~~
