Michigan Loses ‘Right To Farm’ This Week

Jun 21, 2016

Michigan residents lost their “right to farm” this week thanks to a new ruling by the Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development. Gail Philburn of the Michigan Sierra Club told Michigan Live, the news changes “effectively remove Right to Farm Act protection for many urban and suburban backyard farmers raising small numbers of animals.”

Backyard and urban farming were previously protected by Michigan’s Right to Farm Act. The Commission ruled that the Right to Farm Act protections no longer apply to many homeowners who keep small numbers of livestock.

Kim White, who raises chickens and rabbits, said, “They don’t want us little guys feeding ourselves. They want us to go all to the big farms. They want to do away with small farms and I believe that is what’s motivating it.”

This is simply the control Monsanto and other big pharma have on the legislators.  They want to to consume the "doctored" stuff!  Healthy living has become a sin and is contrary to the agenda wishing to control the physical and mental health of people.  Here there are many "subsistence" farmers in the black rural communities - funny thing is that during the recent drought these subsistence farmers were the only ones who could request financial help from government.. Go figure!
