Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund
For Farmers and Consumers Defending the Right to Buy and Protecting the
Right to Sell Nutritious Food Directly from the Farm

The Fund will provide legal representation for -

  • farmers whose ability to engage in direct commerce with consumers is threatened by local, state and federal government interference, including but not limited to health and zoning regulations;
  • consumer and consumer groups whose access to grass-based farm products is threatened by local, state, and federal government interference.

FTCLDF does not provide legal representation for members in matters involving personal liability where those matters are unrelated to FTCLDF's mission statement.

Consistent with Internal Revenue Service regulations, we cannot guarantee representation in every case. However, in practice, we will come to the aid of our members to protect and advance the rights all to grow, raise, prepare, provide or purchase and consume nutrient dense foods.
