The Rules of the Game
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Fisher joins the FTCLDF website as a monthly contributor. Dr. Fisher is a retired USDA Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) veterinarian, bringing decades of experience enforcing FSIS regulations during the slaughter and processing of animals for which the USDA provides inspection services.
Every Monday is Member Photo Monday where we feature a member photo on our Instagramand Facebook pages. Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is proud of our members, and we take great pleasure in highlighting their operations and the awesome work they are conducting in sustainable farming, animal husbandry, artisanal production, and homesteading. We also publish the photos once a month on the FTCLDF website.
We hope you enjoyed reading The Suburban Micro-Farm by Amy Stross.
The next book we are featuring is a soon-to-be classic, Your Successful Farm Business by Joel Salatin. Your Successful Farm Business is a followup to Salatin's You Can Farm, published over twenty years ago. Everyone who read and enjoyed Joel's previous work will benefit from the additional information in Your Successful Farm Business, considered a graduate-level course in farming.
