Notice The Attacks On Farmers

Attacking Family Farms Business as Usuall

Attacking Family Farms Business as Usual

I though with all this in the news, and what I am seeing and hearing. I should bring to light the attack on farmers. With the recent legislation passed. With the teaming up of alphabet agencies. The war on small farms and self sufficiency is a mighty one. Using Drones and everything at their disposal in their efforts to stifle growth.

Link To 2011 NASS Agriculture Statistics

The amount of family owned and small farms has dropped massively. The rate of foreclosures and bankruptcy has sky rocketed. The past 5 years are the worst in history. Their was a slight climb in 2010 when the markets were significantly manipulated. Soon after plummeted below what was expected.  Also way below were they stood before the injection of fake money and mass manipulation.

The Food and Safety act is yet another tactic used in this war against sustainability,private property and other rights/ freedoms. The only farms soon to be left are large commercial semi or completely government owned. Receiving tax deductions and cheap property. Most likely stolen by the government. Stolen From legal Constitutionally protected citizens. Yet this is left out of the national media. Barely covered by local media. Usually only when affecting the community. With massive job loss. Or when a local favorite business or supplier is targeted.

Raw milk is under attack. The Amish have continually been attacked. Farmers being attacked by Monsanto. For cross contamination. When factually Monsanto is at fault. There crops have a way of infesting the surrounding crops. Then Monsanto swoops in and tests or sometimes even secretly tests local crops. If they even find one product sharing genetic makeup they confiscate all the harvest. Shut down the farm and even sometimes have fines imposed.

Local farmers opposed to Executive Order 13575 Rural Council — Agenda 21


The Department of Labor’s proposed changes to child labor laws are designed to improve safety, but as YNN’s Matt Hunter reports, farmers believe they’ll do more harm than good.

WASHINGTON COUNTY, N.Y. — Besides running their families’ more than century old farms in Washington County, John Hand and Neal Rea have a few more things in common: they both started work on the farm as youngsters and both have relied on their kids to get through a day’s labor.

“I was operating a tractor at 12 years old and that was a very valuable lesson for me,” said Hand, who runs the 100-year-old Hand Melon Farm in Greenwich.

Agenda 21 Coming To A Farm Near You As Federal Government Moves To Ban Family Farms

The U.S. Department of Transportation, in an Agenda 21 style order, has moved to essentially ban a large part of family farms.

For hundreds of years family farms have been passed from generation to generation and it has been a way of life for younger family members to learn and work on their farms.

New rules being prepared in Washington could change that forever.

Apparently discussions are now under way to require farmers to have a commercial drivers license to operate farming equipment. This would require farm owners to hire expensive commercial drivers instead of using members of their family.

A proposal from the Obama administration to prevent children from doing farm chores has drawn plenty of criticism from rural-district members of Congress. But now it’s attracting barbs from farm kids themselves.

The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.

Under the rules, children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.”

“Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”

Farmaid an organization dedicated to helping farmers under such attacks. Had this to say

“If current trends continue, we risk losing 20,000 of our nation’s 60,000 dairy farmers by year’s end.* And if this level of devastation weren’t enough, reports of farmer suicides have begun to surface, further adding to the unconscionable impacts of the crisis, and punctuating the need for immediate action.”

    “[The rule] is more overreach of the federal government .. and if you think the new regs will stop at family farms think again,” Palin wrote.
