NEWS DIGEST - What's Behind the Scenes of Your Access to Local Meat?

What's Behind the Scenes of Your Access to Local Meat? + Our 10th Anniversary!
Hello Defender of Food Freedom,

We've been working to either maintain or increase access to local meat and think you may want to know what's going on, too:
  • The Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption Act (PRIME Act) has been reintroduced in the House and the Senate; check out more details about this important legislation and how it would positively affect you.
  • If you care about small-scale, pasture-based meat production, as a farmer or a consumer, please take action on the issue of Animal ID and either attend one of the two meetings or submit written comments.
Also, in case you haven't heard, we've been going strong defending small farmers and consumer choice for 10 years now--learn how and why we got started! Now through this Saturday, July 15 is your last chance to donate and choose a gift during our Annual Fundraiser. Thanks to all of you who have supported us in any way over the last decade!

See more details below.
