Farm Food Fest 2014

As you know, urban and suburban sprawl, unwieldy rules and agribusiness interests continue to be threats to the small scale, humane farming enterprise. That is where Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund comes to the rescue.

Their 24/7 legal hotline and team of attorneys are helping farmers, farm markets and artisan producers in their hour of need. Since they are totally funded by the generosity of their members and friends, they are once again asking for your help during the Annual Fundraising Appeal.

As usual, they have great gifts for the generous donors! These gifts are carefully selected, to expand public awareness of the value of buying local.  Please consider helping out to be able to continue to have access to nutrient-dense foods from small, sustainable farms!

The Great GMO Debate: Dr. Mercola vs. Farmer Salatin

Standard

If you were not able to attend the GMO labeling debate between Dr. Joe Mercola and Joel Salatin early this month, here is a link to a smart synopsis from ‘The Grass- Fed Anarchist’. He recently guest posted at “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Healthiness”  We wished we could have attended the event ourselves that was held in Atlanta at the Wise Traditions Conference. Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund sponsored the debate.

Genetically Modified Organisms should not be included in our human food consumption. Messing around in the laboratory with the genes of the stuff that keeps us alive, is a dangerous game. But should the Federal Government get involved by legally mandating that all seeds and foods be labeled as containing GMO’s? Dr. Mercola and Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm take different sides.

A Review of the Mercola vs. Salatin Debate (and why I’m still against government mandated labeling of GMOs) |.

Quote

.The Great GMO Labeling Debate « Hartke Is Online! Hartke Is Online!.

For anyone who can attend the Weston A. Price, Wise Traditions conference in Atlanta, Georgia: This should be a good debate and the conference has an amazing line up of speakers and workshops. Joel says ‘No’ to USDA labeling of Genetically Modified Organisms ( too much government oversight and more costs and policing of businesses, etc.). Dr. Mercola says ‘Yes’ to all foods being labeled as GMO to inform and protect the consumer. Listen in to the debate and decide for your selves. Please read the above link of Kim Hartke’s from the Weston A Price foundation and of Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund.
