Small farmers in America are under attack. Over the past few years, many responsible, caring farmers have seen their farms quarantined, raided and even shut down by governmental agencies bent on protecting pasteurized milk processors and powerful factory farms.
With all the good small farmers are doing to provide healthy, naturally raised foods to their community, it is a shame they are being hit with lawsuits and put in jail simply for trying to run their businesses without government interference and make a living.
Thanks to The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund small farmers are getting the legal support they need and otherwise couldn’t afford, and the interests of consumers who want to buy fresh foods directly from the farm are also being represented.
The non-profit organization’s is made up of farmers and consumers who pool their resources to protect:
· The constitutional right of family farms to provide fresh foods to consumers
· The right of consumers to buy fresh foods directly from family farms
· Family farms from harassment by federal, state and local government
Along with these important issues, The Legal Defense Fund is currently tackling two major issues that threaten the health and welfare of consumers and farmers across the country – the implementation of a National Animal ID System (NAIS) and the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
