FDA farm invasion in Pennsylvania

Here’s an excerpt of the story from Bob Unruh, of World Net Daily:

“Federal agents invaded an Amish farm in Pennsylvania at 5 a.m. to inspect cow-milking facilities then followed up the next day with a written notice that the farmer was engaged in interstate sale of raw milk in violation of the Public Health Services Act.

A failure to correct the situation could result in “seizure and/or injunction,” the warning letter from Kirk Sooter, district director of the Philadelphia office of the Department of Health and Human Services, told farmer Dan Allgyer of Kinzers, Pa., on Wednesday.

The farm invaded Tuesday is the one agents visited in February, driving past “Private Property” signs to demand Allgyer open his property for their inspection, saying, “You have cows. You produce food for human consumption.”

The case is being publicized by the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association, which promotes traditional methods of linking farmers with consumers.

Spokeswoman Deborah Stockton told WND Allgyer “is the type of farmer who exemplifies what we are trying to restore.” On her organization’s website is the commitment “to promote and preserve unregulated direct farmer-to-consumer trade that fosters availability of locally grown or home-produced food products.”

She reported she got details directly from Allgyer of Tuesday’s early morning inspection, which highlights the growing conflict between farmers who want to provide health food locally and federal regulators….”

    David E. Gumpert tries to discern what this raid means in the larger scheme of all things raw milk related in this post from yesterday:

    The muted or rather total lack of OUTRAGE concerning this gross misconduct by “public servants” is indeed very very disappointing to say the least. What chance do the REAL farmers have in our “free” nations when this is accepted practice? Main Street gets PLUNDERED AND LOOTED for WALL STREET and REAL farmers get RAPED for the CAFOs and the FAKE PHOOD producers. Not a pretty picture! IMHO

    So the Feds go after the non-resistant Amish first, eventually they’ll be at your doorstep too. What will it take before the thinking/caring folks rise up in indignation and send these jackboot wannabes packing? Does anyone care about freedom anymore?
