Government takes away human right to grow food naturally

Sharing is Caring!
After 40 years of organic farming, Azure Standard farms in Oregon is being told they will be forced to use RoundUp or similar chemical methods of weed control — thereby ending their ability to grow organic food. Hear the case for organic farming from an experienced farmer.

Azure Standard, a beautiful 2,000-acre organic farm in Oregon, which has been providing competitively priced beef, field peas, Einkorn and organic wheat to consumers around the country for nearly two decades, is under attack.
Oregon state law mandates that farmers control certain noxious weeds, including Canadian Thistle. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) explains that Canadian Thistle, or Cirsium arvense, was likely introduced into the United States in the 1600s by shipments of farming seed brought in from Europe. The plant is considered a threat, as it crowds out native species and reduces crop yields.
Sherman County alleges that Azure Standard is not controlling this weed to their satisfaction, and has decided to take steps to do so personally by spraying the farm with dangerous herbicides, including Roundup, Milestone and Escort.
Now, presumably Azure Standard is not finding that Canadian Thistle is reducing its crop yields, or crowding out what they’re trying to plant. And, while it’s true that by not spraying herbicides on their farm the weed could possibly spread to nearby farms, if those farmers are not farming organically they are likely spraying poisonous herbicides anyway, which would theoretically halt the spread. It is, therefore, illogical to insist that Azure should lose their organic certification by forcing the spraying of herbicides on their farm.

If you buy organic products, chances are you have heard of Azure Standard, which is sort of like a mobile co-op that delivers well-priced organic food and products in bulk to drop-off points around the country.
Now that idyllic 2000-acre organic farm, which has produced reasonably priced organic wheat, field peas, barley, Einkorn, and beef for thousands of people across the country, is about to be sprayed against their will with Roundup and other harmful pesticides, due to a ruling from their local municipality about invasive plants.
Oregon state law requires farms to control noxious weeds. In this case, the weed in question is the Canadian Thistle. Sherman County appears to be concerned that Azure has not taken enough steps to eradicate the weed and decided they’ll do it themselves, to the detriment of Azure’s long-standing, 18-year organic certification and their livelihood as organic farmers.
Just in case you were under the misconception that we actually own our land and can decide what happens to it in this country, it appears that we’re tenant farmers with no options if the local government decides to wipe us out:
“Sherman County may be issuing a Court Order on May 22, 2017, to quarantine Azure Farms and possibly to spray the whole farm with poisonous herbicides, contaminating them with Milestone, Escort and Roundup herbicides.
This will destroy all the efforts Azure Farms has made for years to produce the very cleanest and healthiest food humanly possible. About 2,000 organic acres would be impacted; that is about 1.5 times the size of the city center of Philadelphia that is about to be sprayed with noxious, toxic, polluting herbicides.
The county would then put a lien on the farm to pay for the expense of the labor and chemicals used.” (source)
So not only will they poison the crops and kill off Azure’s livelihood, they’ll charge them for it. That’s a brazen insult on top of the injury.

  1. I am so tired of seeing government crimes, fraud and lies.. get off of your knees and challenge the LIE that government statutes, laws, codes, policies, edicts, etc apply to you just because you are physically within a given geographic area.. NONE OF IT APPLIES TO YOU! However if you are of the mind to say otherwise, I challenge you to provide your evidence proving it applies!
    Would anyone care to pick up the challenge and prove that any of it applies to anyone, just because of their physically being in a geographic area?? You can regale us all with your factual tangible personal firsthand knowledge and evidence that you rely on that proves applicability.. IT MUST BE FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE!
    Remember, we want your factual tangible personal firsthand evidence, not your feelings, beliefs, opinions or the feelings, beliefs or opinions of others..just facts! “interestingly, every time some putz responds, they always reply with their OPINION or someone else’s opinion but no facts proving anything but their indoctrination and their inane ability to regurgitate propaganda!”
    The following does not equate to evidence proving applicability, the regurgitation of propaganda reinforcing your indoctrination, confirmation bias, circular reasoning, hyperbole, hearsay or hearsay of hearsay, rumor, speculation, assumptions, presumptions, hypotheticals, conjecture, sophistry, obfuscation, scenarios, what if’s, fraud or lies.
    Do NOT reference any historical document that doesn’t have the wet ink signature of anyone being charged. Nor reference any document that is compulsory,.. Fraud, threats, duress and coercion to accept a compulsory document, nullifies any implied acceptance or consent. Well, unless you support slavery. You don’t support slavery do you?
    Further, in your attempt to justify your indoctrination; You shall not invoke any magical legal citations, alleged laws, statutes, codes, policies, treaties, etc, or any Constitution or any amendments to any Constitution, as that presupposes that any of it is applicable, when that is what is in question in the first place!
    Now remember, the most integral element of applying their laws to anyone, is jurisdiction. Without absolute and unequivocal, tangible, factual personal firsthand knowledge supported by irrefutable evidence, THERE IS NO JURISDICTION OVER ANYONE, EVER!
