The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is often the only thing standing between our farmers and governmental overreach of power.
They help support farmers like Mark Baker who faced $700,000 in fines just because he raised a heritage pork breed that competes with big, industrial pork farmers.
By entering this raffle, you'll be:
- helping our nation's farmers fight unjust laws,
- preserving our right to get foods of our choice from farmers of our choice,
- expanding legal raw milk sales from grass-based dairies, and
- equipping farmers with the information they need to navigate abusive raids and government regulations.
Keep in mind that 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund.
