As you know, national and state policy supports large operations yet places major obstacles in the way of independent farmers and food producers simply trying to provide healthy locally produced foods to their communities.
You can help bridge this gap and participate in paving the way for food freedom. Join our expanding base of farmer, artisanal producer, and consumer members. Membership provides exciting benefits and is also vital in providing support to others trying to improve the U.S. food supply.
From now through March 15, 2022, we are offering some great discounts, prizes, and extras to our new members as well as our existing members.
Have you been thinking about joining our community, or know someone else who might benefit from membership, like an independent farmer, cottage food producer, chef, or concerned consumer? Now’s the time to join!
All NEW members will be automatically entered into a drawing for prizes from our supporters, Serenity Kids Baby Food and Dry Farm Wines!
Grand Prize – Dry Farm Wines Mix and Match Case (Valued at $323)!
Dry Farm Wines case of wine of your choice! All reds, all whites, or mix and match.
Every bottle of Dry Farm Wines is:
- From Organically/Biodynamically Grown Grapes
- Lower Alcohol (less than 12.5%)

- Lower Sulfites (less than 75ppm)

First Prize – Serenity Kids Baby Food Gift Certificate (Valued at $100)!
Serenity Kids recipes mimic the macronutrients of breast milk, offering the right balance of fat, protein and carbohydrates for babies over six months old. They use grass fed and pasture raised meats from small American family farms, that never use antibiotics, hormones, or GMO feed and blend in organic vegetables and healthy fats that leave baby nourished and satiated. Their ingredients are carefully sourced from farms that use regenerative agricultural techniques to improve soil microbial growth, reduce water runoff, and sequester carbon. Their products never contain potentially harmful ingredients like artificial sweeteners, chemicals, sugar, or GMOs. Serenity Kids further supports small farmers by donating a portion of their profits to us at FTCLDF!
