The Federal government has long been legislating in an
effort to eliminate the small farmer, and increasingly local governments
are doing so as well.
The government’s efforts—under the guise of making our food
safer—have all but put off limits good, healthful foods like whole raw
milk and truly organic meats and vegetables grown by local farmers. The
Federal government, through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA),
the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other alphabet
soup organizations are constantly banning natural, good-for-you foods
and inventing new restrictions that hurt the small farmer for the
benefit of Monsanto, Archer Daniels Midland and other large farm
entities.
And local governments are constantly devising zoning and other
restrictions to hinder small farms, just like Lake Elmo, Minn., is
doing here. This is not just a Minnesota problem, it’s a national
problem.
