We wanted to share an action alert from the folks at Farm & Ranch Freedom Alliance.
The Alliance “supports independent family farmers … protects a healthy and productive food supply for American consumers [and] promotes common sense policies for local, diversified agricultural systems”.
Here’s what they want us to know and act on … click here for the full story and instructions:
Say No to GMO Apples and Agent Orange Soy!
The USDA is flooding the pipeline with proposals to approve a dozen different new genetically engineered crops.
Some of these crops are in the final stage of the approval process, while others are in the initial stage of a new "fast-track" system.
This alert focuses on what we think are the two worst dangers – Agent-Orange Soy and the GMO Apple.
The onslaught of GMO crops can be overwhelming, but more and more people - from organic consumers to conventional farmers - are speaking up against them.
Please join us in this effort! Submit comments to USDA by September 11, and tell the agency to say no to these GMOs!
