Have you been thinking about joining our community, or know someone who might benefit from membership, like an independent farmer, cottage food producer, chef, or concerned consumer? Our annual Membership Drive is a great time to join!
From February 1 through March 15, 2023, we are offering some great discounts, prizes, and extras to our new members as well as our existing members.
As you know, independent farmers and food producers face major obstacles 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.
In 15 years FTCLDF has never raised membership rates. How do we keep rates so low, and provide services to so many? It’s a simple formula – there is power in numbers.
When everybody pitches in we can:
- Provide our members with specialized legal services through our network of attorneys.
- Man our 24-hour hotline in case of legal emergencies or farm raids.
- Represent our members in court (within the scope of our mission.)
- Support food freedom for everyone by challenging unfair local, state, and federal regulations.
- Work to reduce barriers for food freedom through policy work and education.
