Rally for Food and Farm Freedom

011 Rally for Food and Farm Freedom

by Grassfed on The Hill

May 16, 2011, 10AM
Washington DC, Upper Senate Park
Stay tuned to http://grassfedonthehill.com/ for additional details!

For the past year and half, the FDA has conducted an undercover sting operation on dairy farmer Dan Allgyer and his loyal private buying club customers. In response to this affront of our freedoms, the buying club he services and people around the country are organizing a rally in support of Dan and other farmers targeted by the FDA. Please join us and lend your voice. Stings on Amish farms and armed raids against our country’s farmers are NOT an appropriate use of our tax dollars!

Speakers include:

Jonathan Emord, Attorney
Sally Fallon Morell, President, Weston A. Price Foundation
David Gumpert, Author and Real Food Blogger
Mark McAfee, Founder and Owner, Organic Pastures Dairy
Baylen Linnekin, Executive Director, Keep Food Legal
