Want more access to local meat? We need your help!
On this special time-sensitive episode of the Thriving Farmer Podcast, Michael is joined by Pete Kennedy of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Pete is sharing about the PRIME Act which is an important piece of legislation that will empower states to decide their meat inspection protocols. The ultimate aim? Making local meat procurement simpler and cost-effective.
Tune in today to hear how you can help small farmers to push this PRIME Act through with this year’s Farm Bill.
We’re encouraging all of our US listeners to make three calls – one to your Representative and a call to each of your Senators. Mention your support for H.R. 2814 and Senate bill is S.907 respectively.
