Seems the food NAZI's in Michigan are on the war path once again. This time it is dairy, eggs, and cheese.
By: David Gumpert
The Complete Patient blog
Jenny Samuelson was all set to do the deal dictated by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development: Dispose of nearly $5,000 worth of raw milk, cream, butter, eggs, and cheese. Under MDARD supervision, she was to bring the 250 gallons of milk to a neighboring farm, where the farmer would use it for fertilizer. The 10 gallons of cream and 20 pounds of butter would go in a dumpster. And the 100 dozen beautiful unwashed and unrefrigerated pastured eggs (raised without soy feed) would be smashed and turned into compost.
She would also discontinue all deliveries of cream and butter to herdshare members, despite their serious unhappiness about losing access to these foods.
But then the MDARD agents canceled out on the Saturday morning arrangements whereby they would observe the disposal of the food. They have now agreed to show up first thing Monday morning to watch the dirty deed.
Samuelson is pretty upset, as you might expect. She was trying to be an obedient citizen so she could have unfettered access to her refrigerated delivery truck and resume deliveries of raw milk. She had made the hard decision to go against what she feels is right and just, because she didn’t want to risk any further interruption in deliveries for the more than 600 families around Michigan that depend on her food.
She is still smarting from last Tuesday’s raid on her delivery truck in Washington Township, which saw agents from MDARD swarm aboard the delivery truck while it was stopped in a private parking lot, with her brother as driver. She thinks they had been following her and the truck for a number of day beforehand, and picked last Tuesday morning to do the raid instead of when she was driving, because they knew her brother likely wouldn’t know to demand a search warrant, and the presence of the local sheriff or police before being allowed (or possibly not being allowed) to take people's food.
They told her brother it would take an hour to look through the Co-Op’s inventory—instead it took six-and-a-half hours.
Later, the MDARD told her she was prohibited from giving the food to a farmer as feed for his pigs, since she didn’t have a feed license.
Perhaps most significant, she doesn’t feel they had the right to prevent the food from being delivered in the first place. “They didn’t seize my products,” she says. “They seized the consumers’ products.”
Samuelson has been doing this drill for more than six years--during which time her co-op has grown from 20 members to more than 600-- and knows the rules well. She says the cream and butter the MDARD was supposedly targeting were produced separately by the farmer from milk the members obtained as herdshare members, under contract to them individually. She also faults the special policy group that agreed with the MDARD last year in its policy statement that sanctioned herdshares for raw milk, but disallowed other raw dairy products. "I wasn't allowed to have a voice in that," despite her requests.
Now she finds herself wondering what to do if the MDARD doesn’t show up Monday morning as well. She wants the seized food off the truck .
“If they don’t show, we will be heading to Mark Baker’s farm to dump it with him” so he can feed it to his pigs. Baker is the Michigan farmer who continued raising pigs the state considered wild, and he got the state to agree that he could continue raising the pigs after he sued the the Department of Natural Resources.
But regardless of how she disposes of the food, Samuelson is going to have some members who are very unhappy because of her inability to continue delivering the raw cream and butter. “They are very pissed,” she says.
She is encouraging them to sue the state much like Mark Baker did. In the meantime, she is encouraging them to flood the MDARD with calls. Here are people she urges her members and sympathizers to contact:
Kevin Besey, director of the Food and Dairy Division, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (phone 517-582-1156 or e-mail email@example.com)
Tim Slawinski, Compliance Manager, Food and Dairy Division (phone 517-420-5364 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
In a letter to her members today, she said: “The only way we can get cream and butter back is to WIN this war! You the people can do it!”

Author/speaker and former Sheriff Richard Mack has served in a wide variety of roles over the course of his nearly twenty year career in law enforcement, which began in Provo, Utah.
Mack began his career with the Provo Police Department as a parking enforcement cadet while attending BYU. A couple of years later he became a full-time officer and was soon promoted to Corporal, Sergeant, and Detective. After nearly 11 years at Provo PD, Mack decided to return to his childhood turf in Arizona and run for Graham County Sheriff. His campaign took off and he was elected in 1988.
He was sheriff for two terms until 1997. He was named Elected Official of the Year by the Arizona-NewMexico Coalition of Counties in 1994, received the NRA Law Officer of the Year, inducted into the NRA Hall of Fame, 1995 Cicero Award, Samuel Adams Leadership Award from the Local Sovereignty Coalition, and Gun Owners of America Defender of the Second Amendment Award.
During his tenure, federal officers informed the sheriffs of the state that they would be required to enforce the so-called “Brady Bill” and run background checks at their expense under the law. In 1994, Mack and six other sheriffs from across the country, challenged the constitutionality of the Brady Bill and ultimately, fought it all the way to the United States Supreme Court, where they won a monumental decision for freedom in a landmark 5-4 split decision based on the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Mack has been a consultant on numerous cases regarding police abuse, brutality, and other misconduct by public officials. He has joined with other members of the law enforcement community to speak out in favor of drug policy reform.
The Bakers hope to see you on the farm Sunday, July 20 for a fun and educational time!

An aspiring singer and songwriter, Deanna Miller, would like to share with you, the readers at FoodFreedomUSA.org, a rap song she wrote to educate people on the difference between Big Ag's factory-farm pigs and the pigs raised on pasture in family farms. This easy listening rap song informs the listener of what the DNR was doing in Michigan to an American farmer, Mark Baker, of Bakers Green Acres in Michigan. The author hopes this song motivates you to donate to Baker's Green Acres cause.
Enjoy. You can also visit Deanna's site at:
Farmers and Ranchers flee their homes.
Use the above pledgie button and vote for freedom, and use your dollars to support a real American tried and true farmer, Mark Baker, in his battle with the tyrannical powers of the Michigan DNR. Facing a fine of nearly three quarters of a million dollars, Mark Baker refused to lie down and allow his pigs to be shot and our Constitution to be violated. His stoic defense of our Constitutional Rights, private property rights, and individual rights, is remarkable.
As anyone can see the war on for our food is only escalating. Most farmers in the Texas border towns are fleeing and leaving their farms and ranches, just to save their families lives from threats of death and transference communicable diseases that the current invasion of illegal aliens has brought to their towns. A lot of our food sources are being lost to these invaders whom are being turned loose on our streets by a totalitarian dictator in the district of criminals.
If you think throwing flowers and rainbows at the aggressors is the answer then you might as well throw your money to the wind. You need to support the historic American men of our day like Mark Baker, Cliven Bundy, and Vernon Hershberger, just to name a few. In numerous states there are many farmers and ranchers engaged in battles with an out of control, power crazed, behemoth, government. So Mark Baker is just one of a brave many.
Most of our founding fathers were farmers and ranchers. Just like Thomas jefferson and George Washington, Mark Baker has drawn a line in the sand and is currently doing more for your Constitutional Rights than any politician in Washington D.C.. Mark Baker is even throwing his hat into the ring for the Office of Sheriff in Missaukee County Michigan. Show him your support and donate to his pledgie campaign today, tomorrow may be too late.

Food Freedom Discussion on Down the Rabbit Hole with Popeye; Guest: Pete Kennedy of the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund
On this edition of DTRH spends the first hour talking with Peter Kennedy, President and founding Board Member of the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. They discuss the legal case of Farmer Mark Baker, a farmer who was suing the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) over the legality of its swine Invasive Species Order. The two of them also get into raw milk and food raids; How everyone is affected by food freedom, and the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund itself.
"The Bill of Rights is to protect citizenry from government."
"We need to put Constitutional people in place, it's worked for a lot of years in our country, it will continue to work."
Mark Baker of Baker's Green Acres has always refused the offer to back down when it came to the state of Michigan and the DNR ordering fines of $700,000 and the destruction of his heritage pigs - because they looked different. For nearly three years, the Bakers have been hanging on by a thread while pushed by aggressive tactics from three agencies - Michigan, the DNR and the USDA - which had embargoed and closed in on them, even threatening them with a raid and bullying their friends and buyers. While Michigan finally retreated, it doesn't change the situation for anyone else or arbitrary attacks in the future.
This compelling video recaps what happened, provides an update and encouragement for what we can do help farmers facing the same situation. Mark isn't just fighting for himself. See more below.
From Randy Buchler, publicist for Baker's Green Acres:
As a publicist for Baker's Green Acres, I am asking for your help. Their domestic family farm operation has been all but destroyed over the last 2+ years due to government harassment, threats and an unconstitutional Invasive Species Order and Declaratory Ruling from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
However, on February 26th, 2014, the DNR and Attorney General's office conceded that Baker's pigs are no longer illegal. Their reversal on their stance with Baker's pigs was a move to avoid going to trial where they would have been forced to explain their selective enforcement under oath. It also resulted in a ruling that there would be no damages awarded to Mark and his family. But, that doesn't mean it's over. Now is the time to hold our leaders of the State of Michigan responsible for their actions. From the DNR to the Attorney General's office to the Governor's office, we have been let down time and time again. The elected officials and bureaucrats that are not representing the Constitution of the people must be replaced. The agenda's they are serving are that of Corporate and self interests, not that of the people. We the People have the power to change that, as this is an election year. But, we must act now! Please watch this powerful video put together by Baker's Green Acres to understand where this issue stands today. If you prepay $25 now, you will receive a DVD of Hogwash The American Pig Tale before this year's elections. Just click on the "Buy Now" button at http://bakersgreenacres.com/. Your help is necessary to finish the documentary and to continue our work toward preserving our constitutional rights in Michigan. Thank you in advance for helping protect the people!
LOCUST GROVE, Va. — Martha Boneta, a big-spirited small farmer, calls newly enacted land-use legislation a “landmark event” that will boost agricultural entrepreneurs in Virginia.
“No Virginian should be forced to lose everything when they fight city hall,” said Boneta, who is locked in a costly legal battle with Fauquier County officials over use of her farmland.
State lawmakers sided with Boneta this year, giving farmers protection from overreaching bureaucrats.
Bills by state Sen. Richard Stuart, R-Montross, and state Delegate Bobby Orrock, R-Thornburg, shield “agricultural operations from local regulation” and restrict government’s ability to require “special-use permits” for farm activities.
“Now farmers can farm without fear or fees,” Boneta told Watchdog.org in an interview. “It gives hope to farmers and landholders in the fight for property rights.”
Collectively dubbed the “Boneta Bill,” Senate Bill 51 and House Bill 268 cleared the General Assembly with bipartisan support and await Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s signature.
“In all my years running to Richmond for relief of some injustice, I’ve never seen a piece of legislation receive the traction and broad support,” said Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface Farm in rural Swoope, Va.
“To have Virginia agribusiness, the Farm Bureau and VICFA (Virginia Independent Consumers and Farmers Association), to name a few, on the same side is truly a feat for the record books.”
Boneta’s battle in Fauquier, as first reported by Watchdog, exposed inconsistent, even oppressive, local zoning and permitting rules in a state that prizes its “freedom to farm.”
“Corn mazes and pumpkin carvings were considered ‘events’ that required site plans and a mile-long list of red tape that can be suffocating,” Boneta noted.
For conducting a children’s birthday party on her Paris Barns property, Boneta was threatened with thousands of dollars in fines by Fauquier officials. She has countersued for $2 million.
The Virginia Association of Counties complains the Boneta legislation “continues the trend toward more land-use decisions being made in Richmond, rather than localities, where land-use issues are more appropriately worked out.”
Another state bill, meanwhile, strengthened landowners’ hand.
SB 578, by state Sen. Mark Obenshain, R-Harrisonburg, entitles property owners to compensatory damages, and allows the award of attorney fees, upon successfully challenging the constitutionality of local land-use decisions.
Obenshain’s bill passed the House and Senate by a combined 138-1.
Flush with property-rights victories, small farmers vow to push farther.
Bernadette Barber, founder of Virginia Food Freedom, said, “There is an illusion that farmers are allowed to (direct) sell all their products because there are farmers markets and one-day bake sales.
“Fact is, these are exemptions” granted at the whim of government, she noted.
“I have 33 acres, with cows. If I had the ability to sell all my farm products (including raw milk) directly to the public, I could make $56,000 a year,” Barber figures.
But not under existing regulations.
With Delegate Rob Bell, R-Charlottesville, Barber continues to promote a Virginia Farm Freedom Bill — an expansive measure granting production rights to home kitchens.
“Martha’s bill prevents counties from imposing a $100 fee to grow tomatoes. We would love to make spinach into spinach lasagna,” Barber told Watchdog.
The Bell initiative ran into killer opposition from the Virginia Farm Bureau and medical experts who branded it a competitive threat and a potential public-health hazard.
But Barber said Boneta’s victory opened the barn door for the blossoming farm-to-table movement.
“We don’t want to be the next Kraft or Little Debbie shop. We want local consumers to be able to shake the hands of the person who make our food,” she said.
Salatin, a national leader in the food-freedom campaign, called the Boneta bill “a sign of things to come because it means the integrity-food side is gaining clout.”
Randall Anderson, owner of Wicked Oak Farms & Vineyard, in Star Tannery, Va., agreed.
“I hope this adds to the momentum for recovering or protecting even more individual freedoms.”
Michigan Assistant Attorney General Gets Cocky with the General Public and Sits on His Hind End During the Pledge of Allegiance

The Assistant A.G, Martin tells the audience that the court was adjourned last week by the judge because 'he (the judge) was concerned for my (AAG Martin's) safety".
Bagaduce Farm Facebook comment:
"Boy, they just don't make arrogant butt-brains quite like they used to.
Dirty Harry: your inappropriate verbal attack on a most polite Mark Baker reveals exactly how intimidated you and the rest of your career bureaucrap buddies are. You simply can't take the pressure of dealing face-to-face with The People can you.
Get used to it Harry. We The People are standing up to you and making our voices heard, louder and louder - at courthouses, at rallys, on the phone, in letters and emails, in internet posts and especially in choice video clips like this one. What a performance.
Yes, we see you Harry, and across the country we ALL see you - the Biggest Looser on a loosing team."
Missaukee County's Chief Circuit Court judge, William M. Fagerman, dismissed lawsuits Wednesday between the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and a farmer who challenged the department's invasive species order that barred his practice of cross breeding Russian boars, forbidden under the order, with heritage Mangalitsa pigs.
The judge let me down today, big time,"
"Ed Golder is happy because he doesn't have to explain that he is defending the illegal actions by his government," Baker said in a telephone interview Wednesday night with MLive.
Baker said his lawsuit, had it proceeded to trial, would have forced the DNR to explain details of the invasive species order that are contradictory and vague.
"I am back in business," Baker said. "The sad part is I am OK but the rest of you are not."
Harry gets excited.
There was a 10 minute delay in the proceedings of Mark Baker's trial yesterday, and one older gentleman from the courtroom which was packed with Patriots, suggested they all stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Everyone in the courtroom stood and recited the Pledge, except for one individual, Michigan's Assistant Attorney General Harold J. Martin, he was the ONLY person that did not stand and recite the Pledge of Allegience. The assistant A.G. Martin actually snarled at an older gentleman in the courtroom who respectfully asked why he did not stand for the pledge. Martin snarled "are you questioning my patriotism?" and the elder man replied "yes I am". Then the A.A.G. Martin turns to the crowded courtroom and says "you guys got a problem with me?"
It gets more intense as the Patriots question the assistant A.G. some more, watch the video as Mark Baker describes the scene as it unfolds.
Here is the contact info if you want to voice your concerns over this Assistant A.G.'s public display of a child-like temper tantrum.

"If we win this war a lot of things will change." from the movie 'The Patriot'
We would not even have the chance to be fighting for farmers, consumers, and food freedom if the pacifist non-aggression policy had held front and center stage during the Revolutionary War for Independence from England.
There is a war on for your food, but what will you do? Defend the family farm? Would you allow your homestead to be overrun and destroyed by a totalitarian regime? Do you realize that we would not have ever won independence from England if America was a land of only peaceful farmers? Why the push in this day in age for farmers to be pacifists, Quaker like, and resist verbally, but not to defend their property from these modern day domestic terrorists of the alphabet soup agencies of a dictatorial government? Why is it that pacifists detest and dislike patriots?
George Orwell said it best:
“Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me'.”
Watch 'The Patriot' and hopefully you will understand what America's original farmers had to go through to gain our independence and create this great Republic.
The Quaker settlers who founded Pennsylvania were pacifists, bound by their faith not to engage in violence or take up arms. These are the same things we presently hear from many in the food freedom movement who are afraid of angering their global masters. Courage is lost and they do not even realize that they are being relegated to slave status. What would have become of this nation if our founders only practiced peaceful non-compliance? What if our founding farmers refused to take up arms?
Be like a little lamb if you want, wolves find them to be an easy and most delicious meal. Are you going to let your farm go to the wolves? What would Thomas Jefferson have done if he was in peaceful Pennsylvania farmer, Dan Allgyer's shoes? Would Jefferson have just hung up a 'Going Out of Business' sign? I don't think so. Our founders pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to ordain and establish our Republic and the Constitution. Are there any great men left that would be as bold and brave as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson in todays totalitarian police state?
The American Revolution forced the Society of Friends to do some serious soul-searching. Once a year all the Pennsylvania Quakers gathered at the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting to conduct business and address questions of faith.
In 1776, the meeting, operating by Quaker consensus, (sound familiar?) expelled Quaker men who chose to fight in the war for independence. Outraged by their neutrality, and suspicious that many Quakers hid behind their pacifism to make money and disguise their loyalty to the Crown, the Pennsylvania assembly instituted a loyalty oath that prevented Quakers and other pacifists from voting (in 1779). As the war dragged on, patriots became increasingly suspicious and angry at their Quaker neighbors. How many foodie activists today are hiding behind their pacifism, and the non-aggression principle to make money and disguise their filial loyalty to the powers that be?
During the American Revolution, people had to decide which side to support. Colonists for independence from England were usually called revolutionaries or whigs. But some Americans thought that to break away from the British government would not be right; they usually were called loyalists or tories. (Whig and tory were the names of rival political parties in Britain, so they were familiar nicknames in the colonies.) Americans today call the revolutionaries patriots, a word meaning “those who love their country.” Because we cherish our country’s independence, we value the revolutionaries as heroes.
Because of your pacifism America is now a nation that is run by Monsanto. All the while your fellow man is being soft-killed by the GMO foods, you fear being to brave or bold in defense of your farm. Why do you fear standing up to the Fascist Agricultural Industrial Complex? Are you happy living in a Fascist, Socialist, Communist, nation? Thank your fellow pacifist if you do.
Today it is easy for use to see why people wanted independence for the American colonies. We can even imagine ourselves joining in the fight against British rule. It is not so easy to understand why people who had lived in America for all or most of their lives would be opposed to the Revolution. Sometimes colonists were forced to make a choice for one side or the other, and they made choices they later regretted. Some people changed their minds and switched sides during the war, sometimes more than once.
As the war for your food escalates and the jackboots continue their oppression of raw milk, heritage breed hogs, local food clubs, hemp, backyard chickens, front yard gardens, and medical marijuana; all these things that were lawful and necessary in our infant Republic; will you be like the Quakers? Pacifists? Or will you be the brave and heroic farmers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were?
If you are looking for peaceful warm and fuzzy rainbows and unicorns you won't find them here. This is America land of the free and home of the brave; not the utopian new order of conquered pacifists.
Infowars Nightly News talks to Mark Baker of Baker's Green Acres, a family farmer who has been under attack for almost 3 years from factory farms using their political clout to shut down their competition from small family farms that raise a premium product.
In December 2011, the State of Michigan declared heritage pig breeds that had been raised by farmers for decades to be 'feral' pigs. The designation was based simply upon physical description, not upon the behavior of the pigs or health issues with the meat. In fact, Mark Baker raises his pigs in a way where they can free range on his farm getting exercise and sunshine just like grass fed beef or free range chickens.

Mark Baker updates the situation in Michigan thirty-two days before the trial.
Mark Baker received an email from a friend on January 17. This friend has a co-worker that had a conversation with a USDA official (at their work place) where this USDA official was asked his opinion about the Mark Baker case. This person apparently became very unsettled and replied "there is no way in hell that I am going to his [Baker's] place, nor any other person from the Michigan Dept. of Agriculture and Rural Development. We have been briefed by our chain of command that the only people allowed to go to his (Baker's Green Acres) place are armed DNR agents". He continued, "We were also told that he [Mark Baker] is a gun waiving lunatic". Nothing could be further from the truth!
Farmer Threatened with Ruby Ridge Like Raid pt 1
Farmer Threatened with Ruby Ridge Like Raid pt 2
By: Andrew Mastrocola
February 2, 2014
When an administrative rule or legislative statute is repugnant to your God given Constitutional rights, as recognized under both the Constitutions of your State and Federal Governments, you must act in a timely manner to stop these unconstitutional Acts of abusive government agencies and their agents.
Baker's Green Acres family farm in rural Michigan, has been under duress, because of a state of Michigan declaratory ruling stating that the breed of hogs they are raising are a threat to neighboring croplands. In truth, the Big Pork Industry has been planning this campaign to take down all family farms with hopes to eventually seize complete control of the American Food Supply. So when your freedom and liberty are threatened what do you do? You turn to your local Sheriff's Office to protect you and your family. But instead of the Sheriff doing his obliged duty he turns a blind eye to the oppressive domestic enemy attacking this U.S. Veteran and his family.
Mission Statement of the Missaukee, Michigan County Sheriffs Office
Why would a county sheriff not defend the people of their county? This is just the case in Missaukee County Michigan. Baker's Green Acres has been threatened with excessive force by the Michigan DNR. In response to the leaked USDA memo the Baker family had asked their local county sheriff, Sheriff James D. Bosscher, to protect them from a militarized domestic enemy, the Michigan DNR. The county sheriff is the last line of defense when it comes to upholding and defending the Constitution. The sheriff’s duties and obligations go far beyond writing tickets, arresting criminals and operating jails. The county sheriff also has an obligation to protect the Constitutional rights of the citizens in his or her jurisdiction. This includes the right to free speech, the right to assemble, the right to bear arms, the right to feed your fellow man, and the right to be secure in and on your property from enemies both foreign and domestic.
Remember the sacred oath of office. The sheriff takes an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, from enemies both foreign and domestic.
James D. Bosscher, Sheriff of Missaukee County in Michigan has declined to do what he supposedly swore an oath to do in the case of the Baker family. So why does Sheriff Bosscher refuse to give the Baker family their just protection they are due under the U.S. Constitution?
All actions by Government agents should conform strictly and implicitly with the principles expressed within the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. Does Sheriff Bosscher, just not care about these founding documents that he swore an oath to uphold and defend against all enemies both foreign and domestic? Or is the Sheriff's Office in Missaukee County subservient to the Michigan DNR and not the constituents of Missaukee County? Has Sheriff Bosscher sold his soul and his office to fascist corporations? Is the Missaukee County Sheriff's Office going to assist the Michigan DNR if they plan to go ahead with a 'Ruby Ridge' style siege on the Baker family? One can only assume they are prepared to do just that, since Sheriff Bosscher has turned his back on Mark Baker's pleas for protection.
There is no greater obligation or responsibility of any government officer than to protect the rights of the people. Thus, any conduct contrary to the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, or the Bill of Rights should be dealt with as criminal activity. If the Sheriff refuses to protect the Baker family from an overreaching government agency they are then complicit and violating the oath of office. Does violating his sworn oath of office and refusing to give the Baker's the Constitutionally guaranteed protections of your Office seem criminal to you in any way?
In the history of our world, it is government tyranny that has violated the freedoms granted to us by our Creator more than any other. And it is the duty of the sheriff to protect their counties from those that would take away our freedoms, both foreign AND domestic – whether it is a terrorist from Yemen or a bureaucrat from Washington, DC.
A family farm in rural Michigan may be shut down by a Government Entity who has passed a law stating that the breed of hogs they are raising are a threat to neighboring croplands. In truth, the Big Pork Industry has been planning this campaign to take down all family farms with hopes to eventually seize complete control of the American Food Supply.
"the pork industry in Michigan
Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is in bed with Monsanto just as they are also with the Michigan Pork Producers Association. What everyone needs to do is find out what companies and stores are now doing business with Michigan Pork Producers Association and stop buying their pork. Let everyone know they are eating Monsanto's poison diseased pigs and people need to boycott them.

Editors note: Sheriff Bosscher was contacted via phone and email to comment on this article. No reply was given by him or his office, which makes this Sheriff complicit in assisting the Michigan DNR, Monsanto, and the Michigan Pork Producers Association, in their fascist efforts to destroy the family farm of Mark and Jill Baker and their eight wonderful children. This refusal to protect this family makes Sheriff Bosscher derelict in his sworn duty and he should either, resign, face a recall, or hopefully face a pro-constitutional opponent in the next Missaukee county election for sheriff.
Mark Baker, of Baker's Green Acres, introduces you to the Invasive Species Order and the attached Declaratory Ruling. To support the Bakers you can visit their website and purchase some of their products. You can also make a donation to the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund to aid in Mark's legal defense.
