2018 Fundraiser- Increase Accessibility of Raw Butter!

2018 Fundraiser- Increase Accessibility of Raw Butter! Details » Donate Online

The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund believes consumers have the right to buy products directly from farmers, but the government disagrees. The government has instead chosen to build a veritable wall of laws. These laws prohibit the sale of nutrient-dense foods and torment farmers with unannounced inspections and piles of paperwork and make it harder for farmers to do what they do best: farm. Your support helps FTCLDF attorneys fight to tear down these walls, brick by brick.

For our 2018 campaign, we have set our sights on raw butter and increasing its accessibility to YOU! Raw butter is an incredible source of vitamins, fats, and proteins and, most likely, you are legally unable to buy it. That is why FTCLDF has begun a fight to change this, and we need your help. Your gift will help us fight this fight and many more.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has a ban on the transportation of raw dairy products, including our favorite toast accompaniment: raw butter. We believe the ban should be lifted because 1) there is no evidence raw dairy is dangerous. The Foodborne Outbreak Online Database, established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 1998, notes that there has not been one foodborne illness outbreak attributed to the consumption of commercially produced raw butter and 2) raw butter is a nutrient dense, value added product that can be beneficial to a dairy farmer’s bottom line.

The FTCLDF has filed a petition and intends to hire attorneys to fight for a repeal of the ban. We are seeking help from our food freedom community to help raise the funds ~ won’t you please join us?

Give today and help us toast goodbye to the butter ban!
