Loyal readers of this blog know how much I respect individuals like Janet Allquist and Jayna Davis who take hardline stands for freedom, justice and the American way. After reading a Health Freedoms report, I think I can add Kathy Canty to the list for her work on the documentary, “Farmageddon,” for which a four-minute trailer appears below:
Canty is described in the above-referenced report as an ordinary mom who became an extraordinary filmmaker. Based solely on the film’s title, I was inclined to want to want to watch the full-length version of the film, an overview of which appears below:
Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.
The subject matter of this film was definitely on my editorial radar. After all, I came across news of the film six months after my report about the USDA assault on the Morningland Dairy in Howell County, Mo., and only four weeks after my first report about the USDA fining a Nixa, Mo., couple $90,643 in for selling more than $500 worth of rabbits in a year,
If you run across any similar examples of heavy-handed USDA bureaucrats on the “warpath,” please drop me a note.
