  • Georgia man fined for growing too many veggies on his own land

    I wish I was making this up.
    I had heard warnings about the possibility of this sort of thing in connection with the Food Safety Modernization Act (which I believe is being voted on by the senate today).

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      The industrial farms are trying to get legislation pushed through that benefits them and squashes small farms (all in the name of "safety", of course).

          Here's a version of the article with more info:

          Sounds like the issue is not the actual growing or even how many he's growing -- it's that he's selling them and running afoul of a law meant to stop big commercial agriculture in residential-zoned areas.

          The county helped him rezone his land, but he still isn't happy about the fine for the earlier off-zoning activities:

          So basically this is resolved. It was a business/residential zoning issue, not a "ZOMG VEGGIES BAD" issue.

            Good! Glad that's cleared up!
            The senate bill I mentioned is still a potential threat to small farms-
