Anarcho-Farming in Detroit

Friday, August 17, 2012 22:54 2 Comments

This is a nice PBS video which is a pilot for an upcoming series titled “Food Forward.” This documentary explores the explosion of urban agriculture (especially in NY, Milwaukee, and Detroit) and interviews the “food rebels” who make things happen, even if on a very small scale. The documentary looks at community gardens as an alternative to [...]

Let’s Commit Some Lemonade and Raw Milk “Crimes”

This Saturday, August 18th, is Lemonade and Raw Milk Freedom Day in Washington D.C. From the LemonadeFreedom.com website: This issue is about much more than just lemonade or raw milk. This issue is about the right to self ownership. You own your body. You have the right to do what you want to do with [...]

Mother Earth News has rerun an article that originally appeared on Food Safety News about a woman who has been forced to use back door tactics to sell her homemade, fermented, gut-healthy sauerkraut. Boyce’s ‘kraut was a hit, selling out each week — until her county health department promptly asked her to stop. Without testing her [...]

Register Your Business, Your Car, Your Gun, Your Child, Your Life, and Your … Garden?

In the city ghettos, the police state has always resorted to giving away gift cards for athletic shoes – such as at Footlocker – in exchange for local folks turning in a gun. Then the media follows up by bragging about how many guns the program took in, without ever questioning how the program actually [...]

Joel Salatin on Knowing Your Farmer: “Link up with the tribe.”

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 11:38 No Comments

This is a fantastic interview on the part of Dr. Mercola, with anarcho-farmer Joel Salatin. There are many great interviews with Joel ’round the web, but this interview is very different than the norm. In fact, one focus is around the spontaneous order of farm-to-food. Joel brings up some great points about the problem of [...]

Currently, only The Bovine is has made it public on the web. The court had granted Schmidt leave to appeal, and yet, the state’s police arm is desperately trying [...]

Anarcho-Farmers

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 22:18 1 Comment

I’d like to think that all of those wonderful eco-agricultural/natural/anti-industrial food machine farmers performing local farm-to-table service ought to be called anarcho-farmers. Thanks to having the largest farmers’ market in North America, here in Detroit we have no shortage of truly (not imitation or branded) Amish goods; grass-fed and pastured meats from the local farms; urban, [...]

Writing On Food Politics and Food Freedom

Thursday, May 10, 2012 22:17 3 Comments

It is interesting to note that Reason Magazine online now points to an archive of “food politics.” The coverage of food politics doesn’t begin until July, 2011. I welcome my fellow libertarians who are finally waking up to the government-corporate state’s war on the non-industrial food movement through coercive and violent political actions. I am [...]

The FDA Doesn’t Regulate the Word “Natural”

Sunday, May 6, 2012 19:18 5 Comments

I’ve always chuckled at how Kashi was placed upon the throne of “natural” cereals. People trusted the brand name and swore they were “eating healthy” if they were eating Kashi. A “natural” cereal, however, is a bit of a stretch – it is sort of like saying there is a natural soda or a natural [...]
