Agenda Against Local Food, No Chickens on Farm & Food Freedom Fundraisers
Dear Food Freedom Friend,
The rights of regular people like consumers, homesteaders and farmers to purchase, raise and sell the nutrient-dense foods of their choosing are being threatened. We're talking backyard chickens (and much more!) in South Carolina and Virginia and food clubs in several states.
Consider attending the inspiring series of events in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley this August that fundraise for our food-freedom-expanding work that helps the backyard gardener to the small-time farmer. The events even include the very popular Deluxe Tour of Polyface Farm led by Joel Salatin himself! Not able to attend but want to help the cause? Donor gifts are available during our Annual Appeal through June 30.
