Amish farm under threat from U.S. federal govt for refusal to abandon traditional farming practices​

Amos Miller, the farm's owner, contends that he’s preparing food the way God intended — but the United States government doesn’t see things that way.

Miller's Organic Farm, located in the remote Amish village of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, has been around for almost 30 years.

The farm supplies everything from grass-fed beef and cheese, to raw milk and organic eggs, to dairy from grass-fed water buffalo and all types of produce, all to roughly 4,000 private food club members who pay top dollar for high quality whole food.

The private food club members appreciate their freedom to get food from an independent farmer that isn’t processing his meat and dairy at U.S. Department of Agriculture facilities, which mandates that food be prepared in ways that Miller’s Organic Farm believe make it less nutritious.

Amos Miller, the farm's owner, contends that he’s preparing food the way God intended — but the U.S. government doesn’t see things that way.

They recently sent armed federal agents to the farm and demanded he cease operations. The government is also looking to issue more than $300,000 in fines — a request so steep, it would put the farm out of business.


Not even the Amish will escape

If he‘s selling to the general public, he needs to follow the general public’s rules.

This is about hogpen waste water. It's an environmental hazard. All hog farms have to comply. It's not just the Amish.

he was complying with the law under his system,, if you took time to watch or educate yourself you would know that,,
USDA goal: target and wipe our all small farm ops to axe small competitors collectively, starting with setting a precedent with this Amish private seller operating under lawful terms under private selling not open to public sales.

Authoritarian rule requires eliminating all small businesses and independent farmers. Full control of the food chain means full control over everything else.

American consumers-support your local farmers’ markets and small businesses and their products within your area and nationally! Email your state reps about your concerns; your email could be read on the house floor:)
