News Digest: Long Shadow Farm Open Rescue and Save the Dates for Nourish!
Happy Thursday food freedom community! This week we are featuring a story from Colorado about an open rescue that occurred on a FTCLDF member's farm. Open rescues are becoming a common tactic animal rights activists are utilizing, and it is important to be aware of this disruptive behavior and how to protect yourself and your farm. In legislation news, the North Dakota Department of Health has proposed rules that would negatively affect food freedom in the state while there's a bill in Kentucky that would increase food freedom.
It is also time for us to announce the dates for our Profitable Farm Workshops featuring Joel Salatin! This year we are holding TWO workshops: one in Oregon and one in Kentucky. Click the link below to join the waiting list and you will be the first to know when tickets go on sale!
Lastly, we are seeking to increase our attorney base in all 50 states. Working with the FTCLDF is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic nonprofit that seeks real and lasting change in the food freedom movement. Click HERE to learn more.
Have a great week!

Open Rescue on Long Shadow Farm
Long Shadow Farm lies in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies in Berthoud, Colorado. An idyllic setting for owners Larry and Kristin Ramey to practice their passion—animal husbandry. On September 17, 2017 the Rameys were preparing for a Sunday workshop. People were trickling onto the farm and settling in to learn about chicken processing. Unbeknownst to the Rameys, among their eager students was a group of animal rights activists.
