Prepare to be infuriated!
After a long legal battle Morningland Dairy in Missouri was raided by the government and their property destroyed this week.
morningland dairy

On January 25, 2013, Morningland Dairy in Missouri was raided and over 36 tons of personal property was confiscated by the Missouri State Milk Board. In operation for over 30 years, Morningland Dairy has never received one complaint from a customer or any illness reported as a result of consuming their product.
Will your business be next?


From the video: Moriningland Dairy, a family business that has been in operation for over 30 years without a single complaint or report of any illness has ceased today. The over two year battle they’ve had with the Missouri Milk Board ended today with a raid and confiscation of over 250 thousand dollars of inventory seized by the state. As a result of the legal stipulations put on Morningland Dairy which are impossible to comply with they will no longer be able to produce their product.

The real crime they are being persecuted for is producing cheese with raw milk. Whether the state wants to admit it or not that is what their real charge is and that in itself is criminal.

This should be the shot heard ’round the rural world. What has been done to this family is a travesty of justice. Their livelihood has been destroyed. These are good people who ran an honest business. How much more tyranny will we tolerate before we tell the state, Enough!

Truth Farmer has more.
And, here’s another video of the raid.

  1. SMELLS LIKE CHINA- and we all owe this to yes, I WILL SAY IT AGAIN AND AGAIN—-THE LEGIONS OF O VOTERS WHO FOISTED KING EGO ER O ON US!!!

  2. #14 Hiro(hito) Protagonist —-
    So if the LAW says burn your neighbors house if he grows tomatoes, you’ll fire up the torch?!? You are just what the regime is looking for!!

  3. “I don’t know, Jim. How much tyranny are you going to tolerate; especially from the powers that be running your state”

    Now theres an interesting question. Time to put up or shut up eh.

  4. Violate the regulations of the Milk Board and your business is taken over by the state.

    Violate immigrations regulations and you are celebrated as a hero, get special dispensation from the President of the United States.

    It appears to have been copied word for word from:

  6. And good folks wonder why there is proposed weapons confiscation in the works.

  7. This is really sad. I don’t know if a mom from southern California has much say (me) but I have e-mailed the governor of MO. boards@mo.gov

    God keep them. Please update us.

    thanks Gateway Pundit

  8. I urge everyone to watch FARMAGEDEN on netflix. Documentary on the evils of our government and what they are doing to small farmers/ranchers.

  9. @Libtards Lie
    I watch that documentary 2 years ago. It’s a good documentary.

  10. We can go into a restaurant and order a rare hamburger at our own risk, or buy ground beef at the grocery and eat it raw if we so desire. Why should it be any different with milk products? As long as we, as consumers, are properly advised of the risks, we should be FREE to choose and eat whatever we please. I’m sure our Nazi trolls will find some reason to disagree with me…

    Meanwhile another freedom dies, courtesy of the health police. Anyone who can’t see where this is going is a real moron …

  11. Family Farm is systematically being wiped out of existence

    On top of everything else, the federal government and many state governments just keep endlessly piling more rules and regulations on to the backs of farmers.

    Big agribusiness has the resources to deal with all of these regulations fairly well, but most family farms do not.

    With each passing year, the farming industry becomes even more centralized. If current trends continue, big agribusiness will eventually control nearly all of it. The following is from the EPA website….

    By 1997, a mere 46,000 of the two million farms in this country accounted for 50% of sales of agricultural products (USDA, 1997 Census of Agriculture data). That number was down from almost 62,000 in 1992.

    In certain industries the amount of consolidation has been absolutely stunning. For example, between 1970 and today the United States has lost 88 percent of its dairy farms.[..............]

    The Family Farm Is Being Systematically Wiped Out Of Existence In America
    By Michael, on April 26th, 2012

    An entire way of life is rapidly dying right in front of our eyes. The family farm is being systematically wiped out of existence in America, and big agribusiness and the federal government both have blood all over their hands. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today. That doesn’t mean that there is less farming going on. U.S. farms are producing more than ever. But what it does mean is that farming is increasingly becoming dominated by the big boys. The rules of the game have been tilted in favor of big agribusiness so dramatically that most small farmers find that they simply cannot compete anymore. Back in 1900, about 39 percent of the U.S. population worked on farms. At this point, only about 2 percent of all Americans now live on farms. Big agribusiness, the food processing conglomerates, and big seed companies such as Monsanto completely dominate the industry. Unless something dramatic is done, the family farm is going to continue to be wiped out of existence. Unfortunately, it does not look like things are going to turn around any time soon.

    The way that the farming industry is structured today, it is simply not economically feasible to operate a small family farm. According to Farm Aid, every week approximately 330 farmers leave their land for good.

    Many old timers are trying to hang on for as long as they can. A very large percentage of family farmers are in their fifties, sixties or seventies at this point. Today, only about 6 percent of all farmers are under the age of 35.

    Most young people these days are not too eager to choose farming as a career. A lot of young adults that grew up on family farms have decided that investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a business that requires you to work 12 hours or more per day most of the year for very meager wages is simply not worth it.

    In recent years, many family farmers have been forced to find second jobs in order to support their families. Many farm families are constantly on the verge of financial ruin. It is a really tough life for many of them.

    Sadly, less than 25 percent of all farms in America bring in gross revenues in excess of $50,000. The following comes from the EPA website….

    It has been estimated that living expenses for the average farm family exceed $47,000 per year. Clearly, many farms that meet the U.S. Census’ definition would not produce sufficient income to meet farm family living expenses. In fact, fewer than 1 in 4 of the farms in this country produce gross revenues in excess of $50,000.

    On top of everything else, the federal government and many state governments just keep endlessly piling more rules and regulations on to the backs of farmers.

    Big agribusiness has the resources to deal with all of these regulations fairly well, but most family farms do not.

    With each passing year, the farming industry becomes even more centralized. If current trends continue, big agribusiness will eventually control nearly all of it. The following is from the EPA website….

    By 1997, a mere 46,000 of the two million farms in this country accounted for 50% of sales of agricultural products (USDA, 1997 Census of Agriculture data). That number was down from almost 62,000 in 1992.

    In certain industries the amount of consolidation has been absolutely stunning. For example, between 1970 and today the United States has lost 88 percent of its dairy farms.

    Another factor that is shaping the farming business is the incredible power that the giant food processing conglomerates have accumulated.

    Today, there are 10 corporations that control most of the things that Americans eat and drink on a daily basis. If you doubt this, just check out this chart.

    The giant food processing conglomerates have a massive amount of influence over how food is grown in the United States today. Small farmers that try to go against the tide often have a very rough go of it.

    That is also true when it comes to seeds.

    For example, approximately 80 percent of all corn grown in the United States is grown using seeds that have been genetically modified by Monsanto.

    If you want to try to defy companies such as Monsanto, you are playing a very dangerous game. The predatory business practices of Monsanto have been well documented. Monsanto has taken countless numbers of farmers to court, and they are absolutely ruthless.

    Plus, it certainly does not help that there is a constant revolving door between Monsanto and federal government agencies. If you doubt this, just check out the chart about Monsanto on this page.

    Amazingly, in spite of all this there are still some small farmers that are able to overcome all of these obstacles and run successful businesses.

    But that is where the federal government comes in.

    In recent years, the federal government has become absolutely obsessed with going after small farmers.

    For example, a recent Food Freedom News article detailed what the feds have been doing to Randy and Karen Sowers. They were keeping their cash deposits under $10,000 so that they would not have to fill out a bunch of paperwork, and the federal government came down on them like a hurricane….

    “Structuring,” explains Overlawyered.com, “is the federal criminal offense of splitting up bank deposits so as to keep them under a threshold such as $10,000 above which banks have to report transactions to the government.”

    While being questioned, the Sowers were finally presented with a seizure order and advised that the feds had already emptied their bank account of $70,000. The Dept. of Justice has since sued to keep $63,000 of the Sowers’ money, though they committed no crime other than maintaining their privacy.

    Without funds, they will be unable to make purchases for the spring planting.

    When a similar action was taken against Taylor’s Produce Stand last year, the feds seized $90,000, dropped the charges, and kept $45,000 of Taylor’s money.

    Knowing that most farms operate on a very thin margin, such abuse of power wipes out a family’s income, and for a bonus, the feds enhance the monopoly power of Monsanto, Big Dairy and their supply chain.

    At many other small farms across America, the feds have conducted military-style raids at the crack of dawn over the smallest infractions.

    Some examples of this were detailed in a documentary entitled “Farmaggedon”. The following is a short trailer for that film….

    The sad truth is that the federal government has been using your tax money to go after small farmers in absolutely vicious ways.

    For example, the feds raided one Amish farm at 5 AM one morning.

    So what was the big crime that the feds were so concerned about?

    Well, the Amish farm was selling raw milk.

    Oh the horror!

    The feds seem content to leave big agribusiness pretty much alone, but they are constantly going after small farms in hundreds of different ways.

    Did you know that the Department of Labor is instituting new regulations that will ban children from doing many kinds of farm chores?

    Just another way to kill off the family farm in America.

    America is changing, and not for the better.

    Just like the middle class, the family farm is heading for extinction.

    Eventually, the big corporations and the federal government will have near total control over food production in America.

    So what do you think about all of this? Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below….

  12. I was hoping to see someone take out the tires of the truck brought in to steal the cheese.

  13. sorry, didn’t realize how lengthy.

    I am on a new computer but still no excuse, I apologize to all.

    should have use preview

  14. I certainly don’t disagree with you JDR which leads me to believe there is more to the story than meets the eye. why shouldn’t he be allowed to run his business? Someone further up mentioned lysteria. No thanks, but if you don’t mind exposing yourself to it go right ahead.

  15. The MSM yawns.

    {+_+}

  16. Judge David Dunlap, currently presiding over the Morningland bench trial, heard testimony on Jan. 11 from several witnesses for the state, including Gene Wiseman, executive secretary of the Missouri State Milk Board, Don Falls, an environmental specialist with Missouri State Milk Board and inspector of Morningland Dairy plant, and Sara Blamey, senior microbiologist and laboratory manager for Microbe Inotech Laboratories in St. Louis.

    During her examination, Blamey testified that she had conducted tests on samples of cheese sent by Morningland at the end of August. She informed the court and confirmed her previous report that all of the 14 samples tested were positive for Staphylococcus aureus and 6 were positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

    [...]

    The defense also presented testimony from Jedadiah York, Morningland’s plant manager, who described the cheesemaking process and attested to the fact that the dairy’s equipment was sanitized before and after use each day. He added, “Everything we do is held responsible to God. His Word, the Bible, tells us how we’re supposed to act. We feel like we’re personally responsible for our product and what we do.”

  17. “Everything we do is held responsible to God. His Word, the Bible, tells us how we’re supposed to act. We feel like we’re personally responsible for our product and what we do.”

    That explains it, we can’t have any religious milk farmers. Separation of Church and Milk.

  18. Wake up America! This infuriating and tyrannical spectacle is reminiscent of the land and property property confiscations that took/take place in Venezuela.

    This video shows Venezuelan government thugs trying to confiscate lands using dubious legal pretenses and then reacting with hostility and harassment against those that are filming the government tyranny. Not about to back down from exercising their human rights the government bureaucrat quickly escalates the situation by calling in regime thugs and the Army who pull out weapons… watch for yourself… Watch and bear witness to Venezuelan tyranny and more importantly recognize that, as this video in Missouri attests it is already happening here everyday. It is a slow but steady drip drip drip of tyranny that most don’t realize until its too late.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujiRjYS1-KQ

    (its in Spanish but you’ll understand what’s going on. Especially when a government thug pulls out shotgun and points it at a pickup truck with someone looking to defy the government.)

    Americans in their parochialism think they are better than Venezuelans but when all is told the joke is going to be on Americans who will succumb the tyranny of a thousand cuts the same way the Venezuelans did. I fear we are quickly approaching a point where decisions about active resistance in the US must be made. Wake up indeed.

  19. *Above I write; “Not about to back down from exercising their human rights…” It should read since the photographer is not about to back down the government thugs call in the thugs with the guns.
