The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) is a nationwide nonprofit organization that started in 2007 to assist small food producers with government regulation of food. The FTCLDF protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce; it protects the rights of farmers to sell the products of the farm and the rights of consumers to access the foods of their choice from the source of their choice. Its main sources of revenue are membership fees, individual donations, and grants for specific public interest litigation. This grassroots nonprofit also works on policy changes and education for the public. Membership types include homesteader, farmer, artisan food producer, consumer, and affiliate.
Homesteader members often consult with FTCLDF regarding zoning problems, alleged ordinance violations, and very small-scale production of items such as eggs or cottage foods.

Don’t just take our word for it – join more than 2 million people in over 80 countries who have discovered the advantages of owning Europe’s most popular two-wheel tractors.
Brinsea® was established in 1976 in Great Britain by an engineer with an interest in breeding birds. The interest became a passion, and the engineering knowledge channeled his enthusiasm to produce the most innovative egg incubators and brooders available. The intervening years have seen the successful application of more patents than the rest of the small incubator industry combined, culminating in 2003 with the introduction of the world’s first Contact Incubator.
Brinsea®’s products are designed to be simple to operate and simple to service. They are designed to be long lasting and energy efficient. Good insulation ensures minimum power consumption, careful air flow design ensures uniform temperature within cabinets and optimum response to controls. Incubators and brooders are washable to withstand scrubbing and antimicrobial.
