A Farmer is the Cornerstone to Our Efforts in Healing
A farmer’s work is in every home. Every person needs to eat. It’s not an option, if you want to sustain life. Farmers are the foundation to every meal in this world.
Now what you choose to put into your body is an option. As a parent, each of us has the power to choose how we want to raise our children, including the food we provide. With an epidemic on our hands, and over 50% of our children in a chronic illness, we chose food. My husband and I choose to invest in the way we eat. We see the power of:
- knowing our farmer
- community accountability, economics, relationships
- eating beyond organic
- eating real food
- choosing to eat without harmful chemicals
With our first son having major complications, becoming autistic, and subsequent children facing eczema, ADD, cancer,etc.., we found recovery by eating foods from mindful farmers. We thank them weekly and consider our local farmers in Florida (and everywhere) a very important and respected part of our lives. Furthermore, although we go GFCF to recover, we have seen the power of raw milk for many indications; e.g., raw camel’s milk for autism, raw goat yogurt for eczema, and much, much more.
An Important Time
This is a very important time. Raw milk and beyond organic food is difficult to obtain. I’ve worked tirelessly for my kids and the children we love in foster group homes. Many times, I have to be very creative to give them real food. The choice to have life-less food, packed with sugars and additives are very accessible. Yet the choice to have beyond organic, nutrient-rich food is more difficult and expensive. Unfortunately, these farms are not subsidized by our government in the USA. Additionally, our rights to consume the foods from the farmers we trust is threatened because our government branches have extended their reach into my home. Into your home. The choice to eat real food is becoming harder.
My nature is to work hard, plow through, not ruffle feathers and figure it out. However, I have friends in high places. Really smart and politically experienced friends who can make this world an easier place for moms like me and parents like you.
Inception to Change
My sweet and very strong friend, mom, and raw milk/real food advocate, Liz Reitzig, called me a couple of weeks ago with wonderful news. A new alliance named Real Food Consumer Coalition with Liz, an incredible legal team, and journalism savant, David Gumpert, is now existent to represent every family in United Stated of America.
The goal is to publicize judicially and politically in a synergistic effort in order to push for freedom and access to real food and raw milk from a farmer of your choice. This includes farmers you may choose over the state line.
Your local grocery store does it, so it shouldn’t even be an issue – but it is! Let me personally share that I have an additional level of confidence when I know the farmer and the beyond organic practices. I want to support that farm. It’s just like our grocery stores (which we use), except the food from a farm is; more fresh, functionally packaged, and supports the little and mid-size farmers whom we respect.
I asked Liz to please send a letter explaining what is happening and how we could help! Please note there are three actionables linked at the bottom. I’m giving a little (every bit counts), and I’m sharing. Please feel empowered to copy, support and share this to provide choice even if you choose differently!
This is the letter I received (with “farmer” replacing the actual farmer’s name)…
The Letter Engaging our Freedom
The Real Food Consumer Coalition (RFCC) was founded with the intention of protecting our food rights and bringing transparency to our direct farmer-to-consumer exchanges.
