WHO Rules Against Meat Labeling, the Secretive TPP, Texas Water Rights, and Activism Workshopnews from FARFA
As the weather starts to cool down, food and agriculture issues are heating up.
At the federal level, The World Trade Organization (WTO) has ruled that the United States’ mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry are an improper trade barrier. This international power play is a stark reminder of why we need to oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, which may be coming back in the lame duck session after the elections. (And stay tuned for the latest news on food safety regulations, coming next week!)
We hope you will join us for this year’s Farm & Food Leadership Conference on September 15-16 in Bastrop, Texas. Hear the latest news on the laws and regulations that govern our food supply, connect with others who are passionate about our food system, and get the tools you need to make a difference in the coming year!
Registration fees will go up on August 1, so register today to save money!
Houston is lucky this year! The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) has chosen Houston to be the location of one of their two regional conferences for 2014. The WAPF has one major international conference each year (last one was in Atlanta, November 2013) and two regional conferences. We don’t need to travel far to hear national speakers and learn more about eating traditional foods to promote good health.
Although there is much more to come, here is the information we have now about the program and the speakers.
Announcement from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
We hope you will join us for this year’s Farm & Food Leadership Conference on September 22-23 in Bastrop, Texas.
This is an exciting time, with local local and sustainable food becoming a hot topic at both the state and national level. We have important opportunities to change the policies that govern our food system, but we need people – farmers, food producers, chefs, and consumers – who understand the issues and are willing to speak up.
News update from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
Cottage Foods Rule
The cottage foods bill is a wonderful, simple law that we succeeded in passing last session. It allows individuals to make certain low-risk foods (non-hazardous baked goods, canned jams and jellies, and dried herbs) in their home kitchens and sell the foods directly to consumers without being regulated by the local or state health departments. There are a few conditions: sales must be less than $50,000 per year, the sale must occur at the home, and no internet sales are allowed.
I am excited to tell you that I will be speaking at the 16th Rethinking Everything Conference in Dallas, TX, during the Labor Day weekend, August 30 – September 4, 2012. I will be included in two discussion panels, Blogging and Retirement. These are both topics that I AM passionate about.
There will be more about this conference later.
