Second Annual Gathering
Thursday, June 15
Charlottsville, VA
5:30 – 9:30pm

Weston A. Price Foundation – Charlottesville VA Chapter and the Virginia Independent Consumers and Farmers Association (VICFA) are holding their second annual FARM FOOD VOICES event on Thursday, June 15 . This year the topic is local pastured meats and the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). Guest speakers include Sally Fallon, Nina Planck and Mary Zanoni, NAIS activist. It will be a good opportunity to learn about NAIS that is threatening small farmers, as well as anybody who owns livestock or horses.

This promises to be an exceptional evening of delicious food, informative and inspiring speakers and a chance to connect with like minded Virginians.

Last year both organizations signed up a considerable number of new members. Your attendance can help with this effort. And, if you are so inclined, please bring some food to share.

Eat Farm Fresh Food, meet local producers, hear dynamic speakers, win a door prize or raffle, and browse the book and information tables. Childcare available on site.
