Our Founding Fathers saw family farms as the very backbone of American society. Yet today small farmers are an endangered species because of government laws and regulations that serve big agri-business and make it difficult for small farms to be profitable. …
"Farmers across the land are either being forced into producing factory-quality industrial food and selling it through a corporate channels or just closing down the farm," says Minneapolis activist Will Winter, DVM. "Some who’ve tried to do it the old- fashioned way have found themselves faced with huge fines and even jail time."
The FTCLDF provides affordable legal counsel to farmers and consumers in need, it will make the needs of the small farmer and the concerned consumer known to our government, and it will promote our shared vision: Sustainable farming and direct farm-to-consumer transactions.
The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization recognized under the Internal Revenue Code as a Section 501(c)(4) organization.
A worthy cause. If you’d like to help, they’re calling for donations.
