Toast Goodbye to the Raw Butter Ban
For our 2018 campaign, we have set our sights on raw butter and increasing its accessibility to YOU! Raw butter is an incredible source of vitamins, fats, and proteins and, most likely, you are legally unable to buy it. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a ban on the transportation of raw dairy products, including our favorite toast accompaniment: raw butter. We believe the ban should be lifted. FTCLDF has filed a petition and intends to hire attorneys to fight for a repeal of the ban. 

We have a goal of raising at least $50,000 by October 5, 2018 and we need your help to toast goodbye to this ban! Will you join us? 

Selective Science
The attack on the safety and health benefits of raw milk has a deep and rich history. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) robotically use the same selective science that minimizes the dangers present in pasteurized dairy while highlighting the dangers in raw dairy. The alleged safety threats are routinely cited by opponents of raw milk leading to legislative failures across the country. Conventional dairy    
consumption is at an all time low while demand for raw milk is increasing; it is time we encourage dairy farmers to transition their farms to raw milk production. 

Book Club Update 
We hope you enjoyed reading Letter to a Young Farmer by Gene Logsdon. We created a recap of our favorite passages from Gene's essays.

The next book we are featuring is Sharing the Harvest: A Citizen's Guide to Community Supported Agriculture, 2nd Edition 
by Elizabeth Henderson with Robyn Van En. Authors Henderson and Van En provide insight into making CSAs not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike.

This year we are bringing you TWO workshops to help you learn about increasing the profitability of your sustainable farm. Joel Salatin will be speaking along with FTCLDF Executive Director Elizabeth Rich and Charlotte Smith of 3 Cow Marketing.
