THE END OF SMALL FARMERS, CSA, ORCHARDS AND FARMERS MARKETS
H.R. 2749: Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009
This will allow the government to regulate how food and seed is grown, harvested, packaged, shipped and sold. They can change the standards at will and set guidelines that only billion dollar companies can meet. Essentially, if the local farmer, farmers markets, CSA donít invest in million dollar processing facilities, they will be shut down. Food grown locally will be outlawed. They can also set guidelines so strict that it will be impossible to grow food organically. Say goodbye to heirloom vegetables since only large corps will be able to clean the seeds appropriately and they will only sell their own patented seeds. This has already passed the House and is going to Senate. Read up on it and help stop it. Section 104 is extremely nasty.
