In search of protocols to promote a healthy world, FAIM is constantly reminded of the importance of nutrient rich foods which can only come from soils high in minerals. The world is as healthy as the food it can consume.

FAIM investigates agricultural methods to help replenish the soil and create nutrient dense foods. There are several organizations which stand out when it comes to reclamation and successful farming practices. Soil stewards of the world can now replenish major minerals, micro nutrients and trace elements needed for microorganisms, plants, animals, and humans to sustain optimum biological life.

FDA Proposing Rules That Could Cripple Small Scale Farms

The FDA is proposing rules that would make it very easy for the agency to force even small-scale farmers to comply with the onerous FSMA regulations, and all but impossible for these vulnerable farmers to protect themselves.

In practical terms, under the agency's proposed rules, the FDA will be able to target small farms and food producers one-by-one and put them out of business, with little to no recourse for the farmers.

Please sign on to a joint letter by December 12, 2014 to tell FDA to implement the Tester-Hagan exemption fairly!

Preserving our Heritage
