Milk Moonshiner – Whey Jude

Oct 5, 2012 by

Here is a comical song poking fun of the government’s efforts to harass farmers as they try to provide milk as it came out of the cow – raw and unpasteurized – to families who want to drink it that way because of the health benefits. The author and performer of this song, Whey Jude, was nice enough to join us in Washington DC for our Lemonade Freedom Day event. Enjoy!

Lemonade Freedom Day 2012 Was a Huge Success!

Aug 23, 2012 by

I am still taking everything in from this year’s Lemonade Freedom Day. This year’s event was such a huge success. People all over the country participated in Lemonade Freedom Day this year. In Washington, D.C. over a hundred people showed up to support the right to voluntary exchange. We were selling lemonade and raw milk (which is illegal in DC) on the lawn of the Capitol where 3 peaceful individuals were arrested last year for selling lemonade. We stood our ground for 2 hours and sold lots of raw milk and lemonade with no arrests this time around.

Freedom loving folks from Philly to Houston to California to Vancouver, British Columbia organized events and individuals all over the country set up stands and sold lemonade or raw milk without licenses or permits. Please enjoy the pictures and videos below. If you would like to share your own videos or photos with the world, please contact me and I will let you know where to send them.

Thanks to everyone who participated this year and remember. Lemonade Freedom isn’t just one day. It is every day. So, get out there and set up a stand… Sell lemonade or raw milk or cookies, or whatever you can think of.Because this is what lemonade freedom day is about. It is about your right to voluntary exchange. Exercise your rights!

Also.. Stay tuned to this site for updates on future events.

Celebrate Lemonade Freedom Day by Teaching Personal Finance Lessons

Aug 20, 2012 by

The NFEC encourages educators and families to leverage Lemonade Freedom Day to engage kids in a financial literacy education discussion.

Click here to go to the Lemonade Freedom Day Activity Page

Financial literacy education on Lemonade Freedom Day.

Lemonade Freedom Day offers educators and families a specific time to provide kids a financial literacy education in an engaging way. To celebrate the occasion, the National Financial Educators Council is giving away a project based learning activity that will help kids start their own lemonade stand and pick up important business and personal finance skills in the process.

The NFEC has developed financial literacy lesson plans that will help families and others start a lemonade stand. This activity is being given away complimentary to celebrate Lemonade Freedom Day as a part of the NFEC’s Financial EduNation Campaign. To receive this activity visit the Lemonade Freedom Day Activity page.

The Financial EduNation Campaign was developed by the NFEC to encourage people to gain the personal finance skills that can help them secure their future and make a positive difference in the world. Providing money management for students and kids through the Lemonade Stand activity can be a positive first step down the path to financial responsibility.

Robert Fernandes of LemonadeFreedom.com states, “Lemonade Freedom Day is about much more than just lemonade stands. It is about freedom and individual responsibility. When children set up lemonade stands, they are learning valuable lessons. It teaches them about finances, money, and responsibility. They learn how to set up and operate a small business. Throughout the process they learn how to be productive members of society. They learn about providing a service to the public.”

The Lemonade Stand activity helps kids learn essential business basics like: marketing, branding, cost of goods, profit, break-even points, risk, reward, budgeting, setting goals, accounting and the importance of location. All of these are taught through a simple lemonade stand.

The NFEC suggest having an adult on site ensure safety while giving them ownership and freedom to run their business. Adults should step away from their role as ‘parent’ or ‘educator’ and act as business mentors. Allow the children to make mistakes and give them positive guidance along the way.

According to Fernandes, “Children, by nature, want to be productive, creative members of society. This is what leads to future entrepreneurs. As a society we need to encourage this, not destroy it.”

The National Financial Educators Councils’ Financial EduNation campaign provides free personal finance training and material. Through collaborative efforts across the country, the NFEC is helping to improve the financial capability of our nation’s youth. The complimentary financial literacy lesson plans are made available according to the NFEC’s social enterprise business model, which provides free personal finance products or training for every service purchased.

Natural News: Join us for the biggest food freedom event of 2012 – Lemonade Freedom Day

Aug 14, 2012 by

Visit the link: http://www.naturalnews.com/036799_Lemonade_Freedom_Day_food_awareness.html

(NaturalNews) Coming up in just a few short days is an amazing opportunity to join thousands of other like-minded individuals in taking a unified stand for health and food freedom. From Friday, August 17, to Saturday, August 18, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders (RMFR) will help co-host Lemonade Freedom Day, a special two-day event in the Washington, D.C., area that aims to educate the public about how to demonstrate peaceful non-compliance in the face of tyranny, as well as how to rally and organize others to do the same.

In the tradition of earlier raw milk freedom rides, which drew attention to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s continued assault on raw milk sales and consumption (http://www.naturalnews.com/033904_raw_milk_Freedom_Riders.html), Lemonade Freedom Day will raise awareness about the importance of defending our collective freedom of voluntary exchange, or the freedom to peacefully buy and sell the foods of our choice from the producers of our choice without government oppression.

Raw milk dairies, lemonade stands, home gardens, and various other independent food suppliers and producers have been the target of an increasing number of government crackdowns in recent years. Citing things like lack of permits and various other violations of the law, local and federal agents have made it their new priority to threaten, fine, and even raid the properties of individuals that buy and sell food outside the system, including young children that are simply trying to make a few extra bucks selling refreshing beverages to their neighbors on hot days.

“Two groups of activists known as the Raw Milk Freedom Riders and Lemonade Freedom Day are taking their raw milk and lemonade to the lawn of the U.S. Capitol to celebrate what they call their right to ‘voluntary exchange,’” says the official announcement by Lemonade Freedom Day, which is headed by health freedom activist Robert Fernandes.

“Recent shut downs of children’s lemonade stands and SWAT-style raids on small farmers have inspired these mothers and other activists to take their message to the Capitol where they plan to risk criminal charges, and possibly jail, by gathering for a picnic with these illicit foods. Media are invited to witness the peaceful exchange.”

Beginning at 2:00 pm on Friday, August 17, a workshop entitled “Knowing Your Rights” will take place in the D.C. area, followed by a farm-fresh dinner. Speakers will include Farm Food Freedom Coalition co-founder Liz Reitzig, Executive Producer of FarmFoodFreedom.org Max Kane, and many others. The suggested donation cost for the workshop and dinner is $30 per person.

Day two of the event will commence at 12:00 pm at 3rd Street Southwest between Maryland and Jefferson Streets near the Capitol Reflecting Pool. Event attendees will practice civil disobedience by drinking fresh milk, lemonade, and other foods and beverages that have been the target of government officials.

Where Will You Be For Lemonade Freedom Day – August 18, 2012?

Aug 13, 2012 by

There has been a lot of talk recently about our Lemonade and Raw Milk Freedom Day in Washington, D.C. on August 18th, 2012.   If there is any possibility that you can make it to the event in D.C, then I highly recommend it. This issue is about much more than just lemonade or raw milk. This issue is about the right to self ownership. You own your body. You have the right to do what you want to do with your body, just as long as you are not harming someone else or someone’s  property. Lemonade Freedom Day is about freedom. This is why it is so important for you to attend. If you can not make it to D.C., then you need to get out there and set up a stand.  Open one up in front of your house, or in the park, or in front of city hall. If you cherish freedom, then be free. Be the freedom that you want to see in the world. Don’t just sit around and talk about freedom… Be freedom!

If you are opening a stand this year, please take pictures and videos. Sent them to us so we can post them to the site. Have fun!

 

Please feel free to download and print these flyers for distribution:
