“Empower farmers and get the government off their backs instead of subsidizing them.”—Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky)
Last summer, The Liberty Loft brought you the story of Amos Miller, an Amish farmer who operates Miller’s Organic Farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Miller has been a target of an ongoing campaign by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to destroy small family farms as the government agency acts as a protection racket for the corporate powers.
Going through the government’s case and the corporate propogandist, you’ll find that there was no crime committed by Miller. His crime was having happy customers who want organic food. Not one customer had a complaint. There are no victims, except the corporate farms that don’t want to compete against local farmers who are independent.
Still, Miller was ordered to pay $250,000 last summer by a federal judge, was threatened with arrest and prohibited from operating some of his farming as he was told not to slaughter animals at his farm. This, all despite Miller’s attempts to work with the USDA, willing to pay a $25,000 fine despite not committing a crime.
Miller’s legal battle continues including a recent court appearance this month. Daily Newz 365 described Miller’s “crimes”: “Slaughtering and processing the meat he raises on his own farm and selling it fresh-frozen to members of his private food buying club, who’ve all signed contracts stating they understand the meat is not processed in USDA-inspected plants, or treated with USDA-required chemical preservatives… because that’s how they want it, and the very reason they are willing to go to such great lengths to get it. But the USDA thinks his customers are too stupid to think for themselves and need them to come in and protect them from themselves. You probably don’t know… that all USDA-licensed processing plants are required to treat ALL meat (even the local, grass-fed, organic variety) with synthetic preservatives.”
Miller told Daily Newz 365: “Often they use citric acid, which you’d think comes from oranges or lemons, but it’s a modified substance made from corn… and they don’t even have to label it on the meat.”
The costs are piling up for Miller and is facing the end of his business, according to Daily Newz 365. A GoFundMe page update stated Miller “will go through a period of several weeks during which we will be required by Court Order to halt our sales of meat and poultry products,” and with “the combination of greatly reduced sales and significantly increased debts, the farm is facing a crisis in financing.”
And the end of a small, independent farmer may just be what the government wants. Remember the strange rise in food processing facilities going up in flames as a food crisis worsens.
Since 2020 and the rise of the medical tyranny, farmers have had to cull herds and destroy the food we rely on because of the supply chain crisis. And the amount of fires at food facilities worldwide since 2020 is in the hundreds, according to The COVID Blog:
“Of course, vaccines are the leading cause of coincidences. But there’s no way all these food processing plant and barn fires, along with strange new laws incentivizing farmers not to work since 2020, can’t be coincidences. It appears most of the food processing plants and farms, especially in the chicken industry, were destroyed in 2020, while the new laws took effect in 2021-22.”
If anyone believe this is all coincidence, that the government is just incompetent and really wants to help us, I’d like to talk with you. I might just have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
