Harris County raw milk case goes to trial Wednesday, June 14, 2017!

Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

Grade A Raw Milk For SaleAfter several delays, Harris County is pressing forward with the prosecution of a woman who picks up raw milk from a licensed farm for herself and others.

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.

While the Texas Department of State Health Services initiated the harassment of raw milk farmers and consumers last summer, it later stated that it will not pursue customers who are making legal purchases, nor the people they hire as agents to pick up milk for them. (Read more here.)

Tell Congress to Support Local Meat Production

Action alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation:

We have an exciting opportunity to expand access to locally produced meat for consumers around the country!  U.S. Representatives Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME) have introduced legislation to make it easier for small farms and ranches to sell locally raised and processed meat to consumers.

H.R. 3187, the Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption (PRIME) Act, would give individual states the freedom to permit intra-state distribution of custom-slaughtered meat to individual consumers and to restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores that directly serve consumers.  Custom-processed beef, pork, lamb, and goat are covered under the bill.

Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Action Alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation: Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Deadline for comments April 8, 2015

The federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has released its draft proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines, and they go even further than the previous ones in attacking nutritious foods like full-fat dairy, red meat, and any food with saturated fat.

The Dietary Guidelines form the basis of federal nutrition policy and food assistance programs, so the effects can be very far-reaching.

Do you want to be kept in the dark about your food?

Action alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation:

HR 4432- GMO Labeling Laws

The biotech companies and Big Food are trying to block your right to know whether the food you’re eating contains genetically modified organisms (GMO).

With their anti-labeling allies such as Monsanto and Dow, the Grocery Manufacturers Association has convinced Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas to introduce a federal bill, HR 4432, which would:

  • Prevent states from adopting their own GMO labeling laws.
  • Block any attempt by states to make it illegal for food companies to put a “natural” label on products that contain GMO ingredients.
