Virginia  Food  Freedom

Virginia is experiencing a serious economic downturn
in the independent job sector.

Virginians are also seeking locally produced healthy foods by
people and farms they know.

Virginians can create their own jobs and determine
the healthfulness and safety of the foods of their choosing
without government interference.

For the sales of foods that are
are processed in the home or on a farm and are directly sold to the consumer, there should be no restrictions as long as it has a label that states the name of the producer, address, ingredients and the disclosure
*not government inspected*


The key is the transparency.  If for some reason one could not visit a food production facility, and would like third party verification, that is a wonderful element, but not a guarantee. Most incidents of food poisoning come from government inspected facilities.





The reasons we need this.

The nature of the farm has changed over the years.  Industrialized agriculture ( agribusiness) has steam rolled, through acts of legislation and regulation, the smaller units of food production because they know the profit is in the processing.
Many people in powers of authority believed bigger, cheaper, faster was the way to go. 

We have since learned as a nation, that bigger, cheaper, faster means more chemicals in your foods, reduced nutrient value, and loss of regional flavor and loss of independent food systems.  The rise of cancer, childhood obesity, and allergies have increased immensely. 

We used to be a chronically healthy nation, we are now a chronically ill nation.  Recognizing the simple fact that  what we eat determines our health is key.  

We want our health back by deciding for ourselves what kinds of food we want. 
We want our livelihoods back by profiting from
our own kitchens, our own labor and our own land.



Please join us today in regaining those rights.
