Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund
Protecting, defending, and broadening the rights and viability of independent farmers, artisanal food producers, and their consumers.
Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce through legal representation and policy work. Our members receive help drafting the agreements they need to provide food directly to consumers. We are there for farmers facing inspection and regulatory issues and may provide representation of members facing litigation if it fits our mission. We work to influence state and local policy to ease the regulatory burden placed on independent farmers.
Member rates are low so all small farmers can get the legal representation they need: please consider helping with a donation today.
