Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
We ask that if you are in or near Harris County, please support this woman & local food consumers by appearing at the trial in Pasadena next Wednesday, June 14. Details are below.

News from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
Texas Legislative Update as of February 6, 2017
A fifth bill that we’ve been working on has been filed by Sen. Judith Zaffirini (D-Laredo). The Agriculture & Rural Ombudsman Bill provides assistance with the maze of regulations from multiple agencies that small-scale farmers must navigate.
SB 656 would establish an office of agriculture & rural ombudsman within the Department of Economic Development & Tourism, to help farmers and food producers understand what is required of them and to communicate with the agencies when there are conflicting interpretations.
News from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
Local Foods Awareness Day at the Capitol on Thursday, March 9
Please help us promote the passage of bills that will enhance the ability of small farmers to make a living … and that increase consumer access to local foods! Join us for our Local Foods Awareness Day at the Capitol on Thursday, March 9.
Together with farmers and local food consumers from around the state, you’ll be on the front lines educating legislators about the issues important to our movement.
You have probably heard of the movie VAXXED. Houston officials banned the movie from being shown at the WorldFest Houston International Film Festival in April. It was also banned at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
It is now being shown in theaters around the country, often to sell-out crowds. It has widely been called “anti-vaccine” by the mainstream media; however, that is not the message of the film. VAXXED is primarily about the coverup at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) of a significant study of a potential link between the MMR vaccine combination and autism.
