Membership is open to family farms throughout the United States that engage in non-toxic and/or grass-based farming and do not engage in practices that endanger the environment or harm the health of others.
Non-Member Consulting Agreements are also available for those who have a philosophical objection to membership in an organization that engages in litigation. See sidebar for details

Membership provides farmers with the following:
Potential legal representation to defend distribution of raw milk and other farm products directly to the consumer.
Consistent with Internal Revenue Service regulations, we cannot guarantee representation in every case. However, in practice, we will come to the aid of our members to protect and advance the rights of all to grow, raise, prepare, provide, purchase and consume nutrient-dense foods.
Our 24-hour hotline for legal emergencies any time of day or night.
Participation in direct commerce knowing that lobbying and advocacy are available in the event of government interference.
Advice on federal, state and local agriculture and health department regulations affecting direct distribution of farm products.
Access to information on legal and regulatory issues that could affect your right to provide and obtain nutritious farm products. This includes access to the Members Only site, which includes other educational items and example documents. Future plans include developing a legal clearinghouse.
In addition, all Farmer members receive a copy of the Raw Milk Production Handbook by Tim Wightman.
