I'm sorry to report that the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act has now passed both the Senate and the House and will become law after the President's signature. You can read the details here on how this bill was passed in spite of all the controversy surrounding it.
Thank you to everyone who sent e-mails and made phone calls letting our representatives know how we feel about protecting our local food supply. There are varying opinions on the danger this measure poses to our small local farmers. One of the best things we can do now is to keep the demand for fresh quality local food high.
