Small Farms Under Attack

April 30, 2012 by  

Small Farms Under Attack
PHOTOS.COM
Small farms are fast becoming a thing of the past in the United States.

Government efforts to do away with the small family farm in the United States to make the populace dependent on large corporate-and-bureaucratic-controlled farming operations for food are becoming increasingly successful.

Last week, the website The Economic Collapse outlined an alarming trend in the Nation: the complete wiping out of the family farm.

From the article:

An entire way of life is rapidly dying right in front of our eyes.  The family farm is being systematically wiped out of existence in America, and big agribusiness and the federal government both have blood all over their hands.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today.  That doesn’t mean that there is less farming going on.  U.S. farms are producing more than ever.  But what it does mean is that farming is increasingly becoming dominated by the big boys.  The rules of the game have been tilted in favor of big agribusiness so dramatically that most small farmers find that they simply cannot compete anymore… Big agribusiness, the food processing conglomerates, and big seed companies such as Monsanto completely dominate the industry.  Unless something dramatic is done, the family farm is going to continue to be wiped out of existence.  Unfortunately, it does not look like things are going to turn around any time soon.

The article is backed up by recent news stories about government regulatory assaults on small farming operations initiated by well-funded corporate lobbies. It is estimated that about 80 percent of food grown in the Nation is linked to Monsanto Co.

In Michigan, farmers have been told that they are not allowed to raise hogs on small family farms that do not meet the State’s approval.

Raw milk farmers are attacked repeatedly by Federal Food and Drug Administration jackboots for peddling their pure products.

Government, in the name of safety (surprise), is working feverishly to make it illegal for children to do certain farm work. They have backed down for now amid public backlash, but probably not for long.

Small food operations throughout the country are under attack from the corporately corrupted FDA.

The results of allowing corporate control to take over the U.S. agriculture industry are lower-quality food and the ruination of naturally occurring crops as genetically modified varieties take over. Another result: communities that lack the ability to produce foodstuffs on their own, making them wholly dependent on the State in the event of societal distress and the disruption of modern food supply.

As government continues in its effort to control every aspect of American life, a statement made by Henry Kissinger in 1970 sums up the reasoning behind taking food production out of the hands of small farms, “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”

    Conservatives know this criminal administration is trying to destroy small farms in Amerika. Beyond that, the EPA seems to be in bed with Monsanto and Bayer. The EPA, it seems, is too damned dumb to understand that the mass killing of bees is a clear and present danger to our food supply. WHERE are the fricking tree-huggers and their floozy bunkies on this issue?
    HOW are the inmates not running this _____ insane asylum?

    • Sirian

      s c,
      Monsanto and Bayer are in bed with the EPA – way to much evidence of that is out there. The EPA understands what’s happening, they’re in full knowledge of the bee problem. But they too are more inclined to work with the major corporations so as to further their control over more than just farms and bees. What more should be expected as long as Sunstein is the czar in power? Need I say? NOPE!! :(

    • Vigilant

      The long range intent of these actions may be as simple as the Feds wanting to consolidate all the money and power in big agribusiness, then manufacturer a crisis so they can step in and “save” (read: nationalize) an industry that’s “too big to fail.”

        Good words, Vigilant! People please learn to layup for hard times. Those that already know how, take some time show others. It WILL become a matter of survival sooner than later. I looked in the store this weekend and a beef steak was $12.99 a pound. Those who can pay it, those who can’t buy hamburger for $3.99. Hell, no wonder half the country is on food stamps. It WILL get worse!

        The U.N.‘s Agenda 21 is a major player in this also Vig. ICLEI may be considered as a back burner issue but it too is working it’s way through local communities – farms included. Especially farms and cattle ranches. Water rights is on their agenda too.

    • eddie47d

      Oh Yes SC “this administration”. So convenient for you when it’s been going on for eons. Corporate America has been monopolizing farms and industry long be before Obama was born(much longer). You are truly clueless on when this all happened and who did it. You try and tie it all into a neat little package and keep coming up with the same results. The “tree huggers” have been shouting from the roof tops about the decimation of bees while it’s business as usual for Corporate America.

    • BigBadJohn

      Wow unbelievable, you blame this administration for a trend that started back when Reagan president. I thought you believed in the free Market? You either survive or die no in between – THAT is pure capitalism. If the small farmer can not compete, too bad so sad….

      Or do you think the government should bail them out?

      • Patriot1776

        It isn’t pure capitalism if the government is regulating the family farm out of business. It is only pure when there is no interference from politicians with crony supporters directing their regulations.

      • eddie47d

        It’s the Corporations who are buying out small farmers and keeping them out of the markets. There is plenty that Corporates can get away with and the government has little power in stopping them.

      • ajax

        Since I have been around longer than most I lived under the Roosevelt Administration. We cut down Roosevelt cotton and neighbors killed hogs,doused them with kerosine and buried them. This was a couple of years before WW2. The purpose of this rationing of farm production was to raise the price of farm goods. People didn’t have the money for 5 cent pork let alone 10 cent pork. We couldn’t pay our planting loan therefore couldn’t get a crop loan the next year, so we worked labor and picked cotton for others. The war started and defense work saved us. The government plan was to centralize farming with hired labor who would spend their money and increase the tax base. It was then as now all about taxes. If you know a farmer now,ask him if his tax return has a spot to put down as income the value of the products he produced. What was the value of the hog he butchered and smoked? It is all about taxes. Truman and Reagan were friends to farmers as was Ike. None had the power to stop Congress in a headlong spending spree and vote getting entitlements.

      • BigBadJohn

        Patriot, I know a lot of farmers, but the closest example of what you are saying comes from a friend who owns a cider mill. He used to buy apples to make his cider and had a very good business. Then the government passed a law that all cider must be pasteurized. He did not have and was not willing to buy the equipment to boil all of his cider so he quit making it. But the law was passed as a public safety issue. Just think about it this way, someone wanders through the apple orchard and has to take a dump. Apple cider is made from ALL apples they can collect – even from the ground. If they scoop up that feces and contaminate all cider with e coli – how many people could you kill?

  • alexa

    The way of life on the farm ended many years ago when farmers began accepting welfare in the form of government subsidies. When I told farmers that accepting welfare would destroy them, they told me I was crazy. Well there aren’t many left to call me crazy now.

  • don

    i’d almost say that the small farms going away to become big business will lead to something like we have in the oil industry. high prices and shortages to keep high prices for big business. we’ll be at their mercy again.

  • T. Jefferson

    Socialism / marxism running rampant in American. We need to get away from corporate / big government America. We need to support small business and small farms. Go to your local produce venders instead of big box stores. The produce if fresher and less likely to contain GMO products.

    • mitakuwe

      Did you know it’s virtually illegal to sell produce & especially meat at local stands? It’s gotta be USAD approved, inspceted and literally have a stamp saying so on most food. My neighbor makes maple syrup. Yes, he CAN get a stamp that says it’s not inspected & USDA approved but he cannot sell it in any store, roadside stand or on the internet w/o breaking the law.It’s also illegal to sell cattle that do not have a GPS tracking device implanted…….. great place we live, eh comrade?

      • Chisna

        If that’s true mitakuwe. Then how come thousands upon thousands of small farmers in Washington State are allowed to break the law ? And none of the ranchers I know implant a GPS tracking device in their cattle. And I buy their beef all the time. Including in the local general store. Where do you hear about these things ?

      • Karolyn

        Where do you live? Glad I don’t live there.

    • eddie47d

      You should have been concerned about the GMO problem about 30 years ago before Monsanto took over the small farms and what we eat. That wasn’t socialism it was Corporate Big Business taking over America and doing as they please. No different than Big Banksters and Big Pharma who tightened the noose around the little guy. They made us pony up to what they wanted because they had the power and control to manipulate us. We now have credit unions and generic drugs as alternatives yet it won’t stop the big guys from reaching for more.

    • jopa

      I have to shake my head in disbelief at the public here in Pennsylvania when riding along the back roads.Here they are all lined up at these local farms to buy corn, strawberries, plums and anything else the farmer is selling.Oh yes and sticky buns.Then they go home with all there fresh veggies right from the farm so happy to have homegrown local produce.The problem is all the stuff they bought was grown in Mexico, South America and perhaps some from Florida and the local grown stuff is two to three months away.They pay a lot more than they would for the same stuff at the grocery store but if it helps the farmer I’m okay with that.The only local and fresh thing they could really get would be the sticky buns.One giveaway to the farm sales spoof is some grow corn only yet they sell every type of vegetable under the sun.

  • mitakuwe

    I remember the wonderful years of the 60 and 70′s when the family farm was alive and well. The government made low interest loans available with the slogan, “American Farmers will feed the world’.Production was encouraged in the crop fields and feedlots all across the country. Farmers were making some money! THEN came the Russian grain embargo. The price of grain went so low it didn’t come close to covering production costs let along the loans that were encouraged by a government we still trusted back then. Corn andf wheat was literally dumped into the sea and the mass exodus from the family farm stepped up a notch or 4. I REMEMBER people who had been on the farm for generations losing them to the like of FHA and a myriad of local banks. It got so bad farmers who had inherited their farms for generations went out and shot themselves rather than watch all they and their forefathers, mothers and families had worked so hard to build. A neighbor of ours was one of them, I remember it to this day.We sure taught those Russians a lesson! However, at the same time we removed what was, up until them, the bedrock of the American way of life.That war continued until the small family farm is vistually nonexixtant today. I’ve seen farm houses, barns, orchards and feedlots used to produce some of the best and affordable food for over a century bulldozed into a pile and burned because a big farming collective COOP had bought up the land and wanted to farm every inch of it. I use the term collevtive because that’s what they were called during the Soviet era. The waste and ineffeciency of these farms was so well known the Soviets decided to allow folks to have an acre or two to grow their own crops on. The pride of folks growing their own food was so great that in pretty short order an entire black market sprang up for these vegetables, produce and meat. Of course that system collapsed upon itself. What makes ours any different? Centralized government coltrolled collective farms won’t work any better in the US that it did in the USSR. Now we have genetically engineered crops fed to geneticall engineered animals. and to each other and WE HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT because the collective is in control. GREAT system isn’t it? Now this system has given us Obama and Romney to pick from……… we’re doomed!

  • Congress Works For Us

    I can’t stress this enough. This is the one issue that unites liberals, conservatives, libertarians, etc. Next time you’re in a debate with one of your liberal friends, steer the conversation this way. Once they realize that the area of the government responsible for food and agriculture is not on their side, it’s pretty easy to help them understand that none of the other areas are on their side either!

    • Ellen

      Excellent strategy. I’ve been trying a similar thing with friends who see government waste and corruption for what it is. Then, I try explaining that our medical system is run by the government. It’s a good way to start the conversation, especially if the friend has a parent or who friend who is going through cancer treatment or statin use or some other problem that doctors treat incorrectly. At this point, though, most people believe their doctors are perfect.

  • Rennie

    Control the food supply and you control the people, it worked so well under Stalin and Mugabe. And then there is the famine in the British Isles popularly attributed to the potato blight but was actually caused by all the crops being exported leaving the laborers with little to eat besides potatoes in the first place. China would buy every last bit of US food stuffs, and when they demand payments we can’t make, could insist on food shipments at gunpoint, especially of Obama rids us of our nuclear arsenal and allows China to steal all our technology. I have been preaching for years that everyone should have backyard or patio gardens, plant edible landscaping such as berry bushes or fruit trees, even if you only get enough for a few meals, it is essential that younger generations learn how to grow and harvest.

  • smithington

    VOTE FOR RON PAUL 2012!! If you want to save this country!!!

  • mitakuwe

    Oh, Rennie! You hit the issue right at the center. Learn how, what and whene to plant. There’s more to it than you think. The biggest part of survival training is your mind. Keep the government from controlling THAT & you’re on your way. But, there still a lot to learn and hard work to do. BUT,it’s the best work you will ever do, though!

  • http://www.survivingurbancrisis.com/ Silas Longshot

    Go to ‘hulu . com’ and search ‘the future of food’ if you want an eyeful of what Monsanto is up to. Their goal is TOTAL MONOPOLY of the food system of the USA, by ‘patent’ on all food seed. And they will absolutely go after any small guy that dares have ‘real’ seed that conflicts with their ‘patented’ crap.
    This will ultimately lead to MASSIVE famine, when the only 3 or 4 varieties of corn, for instance, suddenly are destroyed by a new bug or disease.

    Small farmer here. One of a growing breed in my area. No mega farms within 100 miles of where I live and farmers markets are popping up everywhere…Some of the larger family farms supply not only local organic produce markets but Albertsons and Safeway as well.
    I’ve noticed no changes under this administration from the last. Other than we can now collect and use rain water. But I believe that change was made on the state level.

    It’s true that anyone who wants to raise more than 3 pigs needs to show that they will be able to contain and deal with the waste. And I’m guessing that nobody ( or very few ) here have ever been down hill or down wind of someone raising pigs. Or knows anything about the nutrient waste or the problems that can be caused by it…. Raw milk farmers can use their own product without any hassle. But it’s true they aren’t able to sell it to the general public without it being processed and pasteurized. I suppose we could do away with those regulations. But that would simply open up raw milk farmers to lawsuits.

    No arguments from me regarding the evils of Monsanto. But Monsanto has been around a lot longer than Obama has. And as of today I can still grown my heirloom veggies, collect my own seeds and I do this without the use of chemicals or fertilizers produced by Monsanto. Lucky for me there are no large commercial Monsanto farms close enough to impact me….

    If you are really concerned about Monsanto. Then don’t buy their products !!!
    That means no Roundup….. No Raid….. Start using natural and organic methods to control insects and weeds. Make sure when you buy seeds that they aren’t from Monsanto ( or collect your own for the following season ) .

    And first and foremost…..Shop at your local farmers market every chance you have.

    • Karolyn

      Hear hear, Chisna! I am glad I live in a pretty free state that is mostly rural. I love when I go rock hunting with my friend down a road and we visit the free-ranging pigs in the farmer’s field. That’s the way they’re supposed to be! I could get raw milk, but I would have to travel about 50 miles because we’re not in dairy farm territory.

  • Mike

    Eddie47 you’re right on. I’m 57 and it’s been happening my entire life. And worse, it’s been going on nakedly and unashamedly. I think a few folks are just starting to get the blinders off & recognize it for what it is …….and what it is isn’t free enterprise.

  • jopa

    I remember one of my teachers in High School back in the mid sixties talking about the big giant corporate farms squeezing out the family farm.Riding the back roads when I was a teen there were family farms scattered everywhere.Those same areas today you may still find a few barns on the verge of collapse, the fields all grown over with shrubs or in some cases just too much development.Some have a few beef cattle but all the farms with the small dairy herds are gone.Pretty sad knowing all that is gone.

      Did your teacher leave it at that, like the progressive liberal teachers today, or explain the regulatory and “partnership” roles the government played in the the crony capitalism that has caused the death of free enterprise and the family farm?

  • dufas magnet

    What the hell’s wrong with you people? Short AND long term memory lapses? Since the 60′s big farma has been at war with the little cropper, fighting them with their laws (just like the native Americans) making them purchase over-priced equipment them taking away their farm for lack of payment during the lean years, opening the door to big farma to come in and expand their acreages.. Nothing new here.. Who do you think benefits from subsidies for NOT growing certain crops? Surely not the small farmers else they would still be striving, able to pay off their debts with these ‘perks’.. No, look at it closely and you’ll see it’s the big conglomerate benefiting from this yearly ‘windfall” and they want more. Much more and with the demands they put on the small framer (like a certain grain or killer weed) their assured to be big winners in the end THEN watch your veggies, grains and fruits skyrocket while the quality disappears.. Good luck to us all in this future take-over (we’re damn well gonna need it).

    People, Its not just small farms, its anyone who is an AMERICAN, its TIME to thin the ranks down to a size thats easy to control.
    (300 Million) is not the number they have in mind, think more in line with perhaps around 50 Million in total. Anyone with any form of education, will go so too will all older people, all ill children, and anyone who fails to agree with the New World Nazi Order. By the way that will include all smokers, all drinkers, also anyone who can read or write.

    Now, think long and hard on that, as I have said now to manytimes to count WE idon’t have a Government we have a “Corporation,” and your no longer needed, as far cheeper labor is far more easy to find, 4 Billion people in China! Can you get your TV tuned in to that?

    When a member of Barack Obama’s administration recently praised China’s Marxist Chairman Mao as a “favorite political philosopher,” confusion followed. So, who was Mao and why does Obama’s administration publicly praise him? It’s easy to briefly describe Mao Zedong.

    He was a radical progressive who fought for a Marxist revolution in his native China, prevailing to lead the country for 27 tumultuous years. Despite boasting he fought “for the
    People,” Mao’s Great Leap Forward, Cultural Revolution, and other progressive policies resulted in the killing of 77 million people, according to genocide expert Professor J.R. Rummel.

    A typical Marxist, Mao didn’t believe in innate human worth. According to Halliday, he saw only four important things in people, “money, food, labour and soldiers.” Philip Short, in “Mao, A Life,” writes upon Zedong’s belief in “…the need for a strong state, with centralized political power…” Marxist fixation on strong central authority agreed with Confucian texts Mao read as a child. Typically elitist, he felt commoners were backwards and needed training, like children, for communist salvation.

    Belief in a needed elite sect to guide and liberate blind masses predates Christianity, emanating from Gnostics writings. These pagan concepts heavily influenced early socialists, noted by Eric Voegelin in works like “Science, Politics and Gnosticism.” The goal was creation of materialistic paradise on earth, by ending all wars, famines, and greed, via communist mandate eliminating private property.

    Mao was transfixed by cataclysmic events including large-scale staged executions, a love shared by other tyrants like Lenin and Stalin. Mao stated, “We love sailing on a sea of upheavals. To go from life to death is to experience the greatest upheaval. Isn’t it magnificent?” So, Zedong was not moved by murder, since it was a part of the great adventure of life. This attitude typifies Marxists who celebrated the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus, hugely influential on Marx. Heraclitus wrote, “War is the father of all and king of all, who manifested some as gods and some as men, who made some slaves and some freemen.” Mao made secret police, disappearances, concentration camps, beatings and murders a part of everyday life in China.

    Spilled blood thrilled Mao. Informed of murderous attacks, he felt a “kind of ecstasy he never experienced before…It is wonderful! It is wonderful!” Asked how to confront critics, he said “We’ll slit their ankle tendons and cut off their ears!” Mao’s theory of revolution was pure destruction, a total Marxist vision. On changing China, Mao said, “the country must be…destroyed and then reformed.” He added a chilling overview, stating “This applies to the country, to the nation and to mankind…The destruction of the universe is the same…People like me long for its destruction, because when the old universe is destroyed, a new universe will be formed. Isn’t that better?!!” It would be nearly impossible to find a better description of Marx’s explosive Dialectic of History, nabbed from Hegel, which described the doctrine of creative destruction for building the perfect communist society.

    White House Communications Director Anita Dunn extolled Chairman Mao in a 2009 speech to school children. Dunn is not obscure, but was originally one of four top consultants to Barack’s presidential campaign (a group including Obama’s current chief advisor, David Axelrod). Dunn’s husband is Robert Bauer, Barack’s personal lawyer and new chief White House Counsel. Echoing Maoist support were Manufacturing Czar Ron Bloom and Ex-Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, proving administration Maoism is not isolated.

    Dunn, on her favorite “…political philosophers: Mao Tse-tung…I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point which is ‘you’re going to make choices; you’re going to challenge; you’re going to say why not; you’re going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before.” So Dunn embraces Mao’s radical policies, and one must assume she considers his death toll and reign of terror acceptable collateral damage. Bill Ayers, U.S. Marxist terrorist and Obama mentor was also influenced by Mao, saying after America was overtaken by communists, 25 million resisters might have to be murdered, according to ex-Weatherman Larry Grathwohl.

    Pillars of Marxist Political Philosophy
    What are the pillars of Chairman Mao’s Marxist political philosophy? Essential Maoist beliefs include these:

    Any tactic that achieves a desired result is acceptable, regardless of the costs.
    Individual people are irrelevant; only the group has any standing; human deaths mean nothing.

    A strong central government must be erected.

    Non-socialist states must be shattered to be remade along Marxist lines.

    There is no God; no set of rules exist above society, including any civil or human rights.
    Finally, since Obama freely hired staff, choosing those he enjoys and finds laudable.

    So, like Dunn, does he also accept Chairman Mao and other dictators as role models?!!

    Given that many wonderful non-murderer leaders could have been chosen, Dunn’s choice was strategic. Obama’s answer to this question could well make many Americans uneasy.
