Leave My Food Alone

This has just come to our attention: is a petition designed to stop HR 875. In its current form, the bill could prevent small local organic farms and community gardeners from growing and selling you nutritious, truly fresh, organic produce. It would crush our small local food producers by imposing heavy government regulation that only large corporations could adhere to and make a farmers market almost impossible. It's sort of like NAIS, but for farmers & gardeners.

Please take a moment to read and sign the petition!


  1. Before I sign petitions I always look up the bill for myself. One site to do this is:

    I think this is outrageous and I told my Congressman so. Most all of the health problems we have encountered have been from the large producers; who are already heavily regulated. We do not need my government regulation.

    I agree "Leave my food alone!"

  2. Whoops, should read "more" government regulation. Disclaimer-I don't have my own government.
