Biden administration targets Amish farmer with armed raid and $300K fine

Miller’s Organic Farm is located in the remote Amish village of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. The farm supplies everything from grass-fed beef and cheese, to raw milk and organic eggs, to dairy from grass-fed water buffalo and all types of produce, all to roughly 4,000 private food club members who pay top dollar for high quality whole food.

 The private food club members appreciate their freedom to get food from an independent farmer that isn’t processing his meat and dairy at U.S. Department of Agriculture facilities, which mandates that food be prepared in ways that Miller’s Organic Farm believe make it less nutritious.

 Amos Miller, the farm’s owner, contends that he’s preparing food the way God intended — but the U.S. government doesn’t see things that way. They recently sent armed federal agents to the farm and demanded he cease operations. The government is also looking to issue more than $300,000 in fines — a request so steep, it would put the farm out of business.

They’re quoted as stating they’re targeting him as a “lesson” to others, despite that he is far more eco-friendly than nearly all food producers – he doesn’t even use gasoline on his premises. 

What do you think?

Their customer base should pool together to pay off the fine for them ~ I know I would.

But that doesn’t solve the problem of going forward. Once the government gets their teeth into someone “subversive” or “threatening” (per their agendas), it’s doubtful they’ll ever let go.

Also: shouldn’t the Amish be able to divide off their own territories, like the Native Americans do? Or at least some exceptions to the standard requirements, under the umbrella of religious freedom, kinda like churches don’t have to pay taxes, etc . Their lifestyle is just so different, it seems unfair to subject them to some of these modernized rules ~ they really don’t even apply. They should take it to court under a religious freedom case.

I used to buy cheese from this farm. The government has been harassing them for many years with lawsuits and fines. They have been surviving with financial donations from their co-op members, but the fines are continuous, steep, and designed to ruin them.

I’m surprised the Feds waited so long to raid considering how they shut down the Rawsome Food Co-op in Santa Monica over 10 years ago over an alleged goat milk issue which was not even valid.

Healthful nutrition is antithetical to the oligarchy’s agenda.

They should file bankruptcy after selling their farm for pennies to their Amish friends under a new name then continue as usual. Call it a religion if they have to. Play the system like the gov politicians do themselves.

They believe you don’t have the right to eat top quality food. But they also worship fertility gods which is who they give human and animal sacrifices too. Fertility gods often have links to vegetation. So if many of them claim they don’t believe in Satan. Aren’t they angering their vegetation gods?

Just hope that GoFundMe doesn’t confiscate the money.
