Farmers and Consumers - Don't Wait Until You Need Them

Another story showing how oppressive local government is becoming to small farms.

 The worst time to buy insurance is after you need it. It's like closing the gate after the hogs are out. I taught personal finance for 15 plus years and my counsel was always weigh the risks for insurance, most people are betting they will need insurance and the insurance company is betting you won't.

 The threat to small local farmers is mounting on a daily basis. Your chance of having an issue is greater today than ever before. The Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund is a great resource fighting to help small farms.

 Don't wait until you need them to become a member. I receive nothing in any way from promoting them other than the peace of mind knowing other farmers and consumers are helping fund the resistance to over regulating small farms and your right to food of your choice.


 

 


 


 


 
 

USDA Budget Cuts...You Mean We're Paying For This?

The USDA recently announced they are going to lose 150 Million dollars in a budget cut. Listen to what Tom Vilisack mentions in his announcement. 

I'm always amazed at the waste found when somebody actually looks for it. He mentions office buildings and equipment that are vacant, 700 hundred different cell phone contracts, 70 crop reporting days cut back.

The things we find necessary when the money is flowing!


 



 

 
 

Joel Salatin - Folk's This Ain't Normal

Love him or hate him, Joel Salatin is leading the charge when it comes to small farms.

 I can't wait to read his new book coming out in October. I love the fact that Joel has got the ear of a portion of America that is big enough to help bring about change. 

 Watch the video to get a glimpse into what he'll be covering. While you're at it if you don't know about the Farm to Consumer Legal defense Fund check them out!

 until next time...

A Great Way to See/Share Why to buy from a Local Farm

I love this little video! It really brings home what's going on in the industrial farming sector.

When I go through the grocery store I see so many pretty, pastoral labels all designed to make me think my food is actually coming from a real farm somewhere...

Opt out of that system buy from a local farmer!
