The Agribusiness Freedom Foundation (AFF) is a tax-exempt organization that promotes "free market principles throughout the agricultural food chain." The 501(c)(4) group describes itself as a "communications and educational initiative striving to preserve the freedom of the agricultural food chain to operate and innovate in order to continue the success of American agriculture."[1]

Steve Dittmer is the group's executive vice president and the only person listed on their website.

Dittmer was a co-published CALF News magazine and member of Beef Industry Council Advertising Committee. Dittmer has written op-ed articles on "liberal activist groups" targeting the beef industry

Funding

The AFF does not disclose its funders but notes on its website that "Contributions may be a business deduction, but you must consult your tax professional. Contributions are not deductible as a charitable contribution. The names of contributors are kept confidential." [2]
