Jacqueline and John Stowers Tell Their Story

Swatting Farmers

Guest: Attorney Steve Bemis, Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund Board Member
Subject: The SWAT team held the Stowers family with assault weapons for nine hours while tearing their farmhouse apart looking for evidence. The Stowers’ crime? Selling farm-fresh foods to friends and neighbors! This SWATTING of farmers leads us to ask… Should farmers be allowed to sell us their foods, or should we be forced to buy their foods from government-sanctioned corporations? (#617)

Topics include why the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund exists; why governments of all shapes and sizes appear to be taking out farmers who sell farm fresh foods direct to consumers; and whether farmers should, or should not, be allowed to sell us farm fresh foods.
