Did you know that every time you drink a bottle of Buchi Sovereign, you're supporting the critical work of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund? FTCLDF (for short) is a grassroots social profit protecting our food sovereignty by defending the legal rights of small farmers. Artisan food producers who make raw foods like Buchi are at risk every day of being shut down or stifled by regulators who don't understand kombucha or the benefit of consuming living foods.
If you're passionate about food sovereignty and food security, please take a moment to learn more about this incredible organization whose work is supported by the Weston A. Price Foundation, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Joel Salatin Birke Baehr and many others.
The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is a 501 (c) (4) protecting the rights of farmers and artisanal producers to make their products available -- and the rights of consumers to access the foods of their choice from the source of their choice.
Why do we need a FTCLDF? Our food sovereignty is at risk! Regulations from federal, state and local government agencies often make it too expensive or even illegal to sell some locally produced or artisan foods.
Tragically, "food safety" laws meant to reign in large industrial food operations often unnecessarily hobble the small farmer, hindering them from feeding their neighbors, shuttering family farms by the thousands.
When small farmers, cheese-makers and others were raided, fined or regulated out of business, a vocal and vibrant national "food rights community" came together to provide essential legal resources so that they could navigate the regulations. They pooled their money to create the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund.
Buchi Kombucha is a proud member of this vibrant food rights community and supports the work of the FTCLDF with every bottle of Sovereign sold. We hope you'll make a toast to "food sovereignty" the next time you enjoy this delicious artisan beverage.
