NEWS DIGEST - Government Restricts Access to Snails & Raw Milk!

Government Restricts Access to Snails & Raw Milk
Dear Food Freedom Fan, 

The government and big ag are trying to restrict consumer choice and the ability of small food businesses to thrive, from raw milk on the East Coast, snails on the West Coast, and many in between (see stories below).

Do your part to unshackle these restrictions: become a member, donate, share our posts, and/or attend our August 19-21 fundraisers, including the last year in the foreseeable future for the Deluxe Tour of Polyface Farm led by Joel Salatin himself. Save $40 on this epic tour, now through August 12, with coupon code "FFF40"!

Warm regards,

FTCLDF Team
