This Friday, on Independence Day, Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund turns 7 years old! That means 7 years of defending our rights to farm fresh, organic and beyond organic foods! And 7 years of helping small farmers through their worst nightmare, a farm shut down, seizure or raid. And, of course working on the federal and state level to pass farm friendly policies like the one that became law this week (See yesterday’s press release, Landmark Agricultural Bill Becomes Law in Virginia.

Day of Action to Support Federal Food Freedom Bills: May 6, 2014

The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is asking those who believe in food freedom and consumer choice to make their voices heard during a Day of Action on Tuesday, May 6.

If you believe that Americans have the right to buy wholesome, natural foods from local farms, please contact your state representatives on Tuesday, May 6 and urge them to support bills HB 4307 and HB 4308 to end federal crackdown on the distribution of raw milk.

A short video by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund provides a brief glimpse into the contentious history between public health officials and raw milk producers, and explains what these two bills will do to alleviate the persecution of raw milk producers.

“You don’t need to drink raw milk to support others’ rights to peacefully procure the foods of their choice from the producer of their choice,” urges the narrator in the video. “Please call your Congressperson and ask them to support these two bills.”
