Judith McGeary: Food Freedom: Opportunities and Challenges for Producers
In the face of increasingly burdensome regulations, small-scale producers have been fighting for provisions that promote rather than hinder the local food movement. This session will provide an overview of cottage food and food freedom laws around the country and discuss the outlook for the future — and how producers can get involved. Judith is an attorney, farm activist and organic farmer in central Texas. She is very experienced in the law, government overreach, and what farmers can do to protect their rights.
