Farm and Food Freedom

The freedom to grow your own food and share it with your neighbors must be restored. Individuals should be free to choose to drink raw milk, know if their food contains GMO’s, eat farm slaughtered meat and other food choices. The federal government has monopolized the word “organic”. In order to become a certified organic farm the farmer must pay a fee to the government. This is a regressive tax on farmers and an impediment to the production of better food. Federal milk price controls, corn subsidies, and many other regulations, tax policies and financial assistance programs benefit large corporations, but make good food unavailable, unaffordable and inaccessible. Dexter will be a strong advocate for food and farm freedom.
