Family Farms are Under Attack!

Did you know that a proposed ruling from our wonderful government has told us that our children cannot work on our own farms?  Seriously, no joke.  There are 85 regulations written on this ruling, 85!  Thankfully, we have some that are fighting for us in this uphill battle.  The proposed ruling has now exempted the children who work on their own parent's farm.  But, it isn't over yet!  This is still up for commenting and it is not a done deal.

What is happening to America?  Where did our freedom go?  For the Department of Labor to even make a ruling that would tell parents that their kids can't work on their farm, that they can't trim hooves, ride a horse, work in the fields, use an electric screwdriver, help with hay baling, be with animals over six months of age, the list goes on and on, is a little to socialistic don't you think?

Watch this video below from Fox News.  Then, watch Senator John Thune bring up some great points that we can all agree with!  Thanks to him and Senator Jerry Moran for introducing a bill called Preserving America's Family Farm Act, which gives back our parental rights on our own farms.

It is time we put our feet firmly down on our land, put up a fight, and speak out against such unconstitutional acts from the government!  Family farms are at risk.  They are being shut down more than I care to hear about.  Why?  Because they didn't follow some silly regulation or because a new regulation came along making it impossible for the farm to survive!

Did you know that in New Zealand, they are pushing for a new law that states that people cannot grow their own vegetables, all in the name of safety?  It's coming, folks.  It's here, now.  And if we don't take a stand and speak up, who will?

  2. Yes, they are trying to close down all the small guys so that the big government owned farms run the show and make us totally reliable upon them. So very sad and how Americans are allowing this is most devastating. People are too worn out when they get home to care for much of these matters...

  3. This is horrific! As someone who lives in rural Heartland country in America, either these people who are making these rules have never been on a farm, or want to destroy our country from the inside out. Or Both. My 12 year old helps with everything and I am hoping as my little ones grow up they will also learn how to be more self-sufficient than being able to write a grocery list and head to a controlled grocery store. I dont know-----this smacks of dictatorship to me, and that is horrible.
    The only reason so many people were able to keep families together during the depression was the family working together, keeping their gardens, animals, and farms going. If that is eliminated, then we are a society are just plain doomed.

  4. Thanks so much for posting this! I will contact my representatives. We are beef farmers and have two sons who dairy farm. This is just totally outrageous ~ Washington doesn't have a clue. JES above is totally right on too ~ government run everything and everyone living in the cities.
    Lord help us!

  5. Thanks, Susie for posting this--when will we wake up? I was amazed when I put this up on FB that people care so little about what is happening--we'll lose our freedoms one at a time because people care so little--thankfully, you have some readers here who do care--that's encouraging to see:)

  6. doomed=prog goal. :( Senator Thune defined the problem: the family farm fosters and instills the qualities and characteristics that made this country great--responsibility, integrity, self-reliance, resourcefulness. None of these qualities is of particular use in the Statists' version of utopia.

  7. It is troubling times we live in for sure. We must cry out for mercy from God, and do what ever we can. We have found that the best place to really get involved is on the local level. County officials don't realize how much authority they really have concerning many federally mandated issues.

  9. During the depression the government pushed for Victory gardens and growing our own food, Michelle Obama has pushed for growing your own food and had a garden put in at the white house and now they want to tell us we can't grow a garden and our children can't help with it and livestock? It doesnt make sense and there is a lot at stake here folks!

  10. Thanks for sharing this information. Our family has been pushing this regulation and talking with our representatives at all levels for months now. People who would like to show their support can go to http://www.keepfamiliesfarming.com/ my son and husband are the ones feeding the dairy calves in the header. We are a family owned farm in SC and produce about 300,000 gallons of milk each year because of the way the rule is presented even with the "exemption" my son will still not be able to work on our farm. We are not majority owners (my in-laws are) and we operate as an LLC. This is not over yet and could get worse. Thanks again for sharing!

    1. OH my! What part of the ruling is it that states your son cannot work on your farm? Is it because you are not majority owned? Isn't that crazy! It is hard to believe America is losing her freedoms! Thank you for sharing, Caci!
