Have you been thinking about joining our community? It’s a great time to join!
If you or someone you love is an independent farmer, cottage food producer, chef, or concerned consumer, take advantage of all the great discounts, offers, and prizes during our 2024 Membership Drive! TIP: Look for our advertisement in the Stockman Grass Farmer’s February Issue for a discount on your first year of membership!
From Feb. 1 through Mar. 15, 2024, several of our members and supporters are offering great discounts, prizes, and extras to our new and current members.
As you know, independent farmers and food producers face major obstacles simply trying to provide healthy locally produced foods to their communities.
In 16 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 strength 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.
(Best to join through your computer or tablet rather than your phone, or simply call our office at (703) 208-3276.)
