Feds Shut Down Amish Farm at Gunpoint

For those who have been hiding in caves for the last many decades, the federal government has lost all sense of proportion, lost sight of the Constitution.  In fact, the federal government has lost all sight and sense.  Here’s yet one more pitiful example.

The Washington Times reports:

The FDA has won its two-year fight to shut down an Amish farmer who was selling fresh, raw milk to eager consumers in the Washington region, after a judge this month banned Daniel Allgyer from selling his milk across state lines, and he told his customers he’ll shut his farm down altogether.

The decision has enraged Mr. Allgyer’s supporters, some of whom have been buying from him for six years and who say the government is interfering with their parental rights to feed their children. But the Food and Drug Administration, which launched a full investigation complete with a 5 a.m. surprise inspection and a straw-purchase sting operation against Mr. Allgyer’s Rainbow Acres Farm, near Lancaster, said unpasteurized milk is unsafe and said it was exercising its due authority to stop its sale from one state to another.

Adding to Mr. Allgyer’s troubles, Judge Lawrence F. Stengel said if he is found to violate the law again he will have to pay the FDA’s costs for investigating and prosecuting him.

His customers are wary of talking publicly, fearing the FDA will come after them.

“I can’t believe in 2012 the federal government is raiding Amish farmers at gunpoint all over a basic human right to eat natural food,” said one, who asked not to be named but who got weekly shipments of eggs, milk, honey and butter from Rainbow Acres. “In Maryland, they force taxpayers to pay for abortions, but God forbid we want the same milk our grandparents drank.”

  1. Unbelievable! This has to be one of THEE most ludacris articles I’ve read. Next they’ll be kicking down lemonade stands and interrogating the kids over proper lemon to water ratios that fit within the FDA standards.

  2. America isn’t what is used to be anymore. The “freedom” we once enjoyed is a thing of the past. We are being drugged, forced to eat GMO foods, and taxed to death!

  3. That is so stupid,now we don’t have the right to make our own decisions on the food that we eat, how many more rights do we have to lose before we start firing the people that we pay to be in office, We give to much power to the wrong people, and while they set up on nob hill living high on the hog we are down here struggling to keep afloat, doing without a lot of necessity’s, while they waste more in a day; then we could use in a years time. Just saying this is my opinion,
