The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is often the only thing standing between our farmers and governmental overreach of power.
By entering this raffle (100% of all proceeds will be donated to the Fund), 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 -- like standing by heritage pork farmer Mark Baker who faces $700,000 in fines just because he raises a heritage pork breed,
- facilitating the expansion of legal raw milk sales from grass-based dairies, and
- equipping farmers with the information they need to navigate abusive raids and government regulations.
You'll also be entering for a chance to win an all-expense paid trip on February 19-24, 2014 to Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, CO to attend Monica Corrado's intense, four day, Learn to Cook program with the Food Renegade, Kristen Michaelis.
All meals will feature traditionally-prepared, locally-sourced, organically-farmed foods. It'll be a foodie paradise (and it's worth $2600!).
Nestled in the foothills of Denver's Rocky Mountains, Sunrise Ranch Retreat & Conference Center is an ideal location for a getaway. And cooking instructor Chef Monica Corrado is an outstanding teacher who knows how to both educate and entertain.
In other words, you will have the time of your life.
And even if you don't win, you'll be certain that your money is going to a fabulous cause.
Who wouldn't want to support our nation's small farmers?
