The Rogue Food Movement Is Gaining Ground – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on August 24, 2021

After 12 years, Stoltzfoos had let his license lapse, and an undercover agent purchased the raw milk and other products resulting in the filing of criminal and administrative charges against the couple. They are allowed to sell the product if they claim it is pet food. The couple was found guilty, but the massive showing of support in the courtroom and the testimonies influenced the judge’s decision to defer the sentence. The Westin A. Price Foundation played a role in assisting with the couple’s defense.

“We’re gonna storm the gates. They just don’t know it yet.” – Joel Salatin

How do you circumvent the centralized food system and government and achieve food independence for yourself and your community? Several hundred food and health freedom enthusiasts travelled from across the US to gather at the Rogue Food Conference at the world renowned regenerative Polyface Farm on August 14 to find out. These rogues and apprentice rogues believe they have the right to grow, eat and sell food without interference from the government. Speakers – many of whom have found themselves behind bars due to challenging bureaucrats and politicians – talked about how there is strength in numbers; how to use creative circumvention and tactics; how banding together and supporting each other as a community is the key to victory; and the community building constructs including food churches, buying clubs, and other local food approaches. And any Polyface gathering is going to include delicious nutrient-dense food grown on the farm – fresh fruit, eggs, sausage links and coffee for breakfast and BBQ chicken and salad for lunch – which energized everyone to listen, learn, network and soak in the beautiful landscape of the mountains and the Shenandoah Valley.

Polyface co-owner Joel Salatin kicked off the gathering with a reading of Milton Mayer’s somber “They Thought They Were Free: The Germans 1933-45,” Chapter 13 “But Then It Was Too Late.” Attentive listeners recognized the unmistakable eerie historical comparison with today’s threatening Covid/Great Reset technocrats attempting to tyrannize America – indeed the world.

Those passionate about food freedom and health independence are a growing grassroots community who are disengaging families, livelihoods, and money from the system. They oppose the planned global technocratic tyrannical agenda of multiple forced toxic shots. These freedom lovers do not want their movement to be tracked and traced where every element of a sovereign free life is rewarded or punished, denied or granted based on a social credit score. “We are here early to defend personal responsibility,” said Salatin. “There is so much talent and heart in this movement. We are creating an alternate universe. This is the remnant. This is our tribe.” He announced plans to take future rogue food events on the road and offered Polyface as a venue for future gatherings for like-minded groups if they find themselves shut out of other locations.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and his childhood sweetheart wife Rhonda were “two hillbillies at MIT” inventing virtual reality devices and building super conductors when they decided they missed Kentucky and bought her parents’ farm.  “When my farm grows up, it wants to be Polyface,” he said. The local government kept passing laws telling farmers what to do their land. Massie ignored this for a while and then wrote a letter to the editor which resulted in a public hearing that stopped the proposed raising of taxes. The Planning Commission turned into a Zoning Commission and was planning to require farmers to ask the local government for permission as to what they could do with their property. Thirty people showed up at the meeting and everyone gave Massie their five minutes to speak. The county now has no zoning. Massie needed a new water heater and was told it would cost $12,000 to pass inspection. The county only had one licensed plumber, and he was aware that inmates were being housed to profit off their human capital, so he enlisted the convicts to help him install the heater. He got it done for $5,500. The parts of the old heater had been stripped off, but Massie noticed the inspection sticker and told the inmates to put it on the new heater. The judge told him he would go to jail; Massie said at least he would have a hot shower. He ran for Lewis County Judge Executive and won. Then he decided to return to AI and virtual reality and ran for Congress. When Massie insisted on getting a roll call vote on the $2 trillion Covid relief bill in 2020, warning it was a massive wealth transfer from the middle class to the rich, he received a lot of pressure, and not only from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He noticed a call coming from the White House and let it go into voicemail, and then another. When he finally talked with the president, Trump threatened to go after him to keep him from winning reelection.  When Massie introduced a bill to prohibit federal interference with the interstate traffic of raw milk and milk products packaged for human consumption, the milk lobby went after him: “I didn’t know the lactose lobby was so tolerant.” Massie introduced the PRIME Act to give states the freedom to permit the intrastate distribution of custom-slaughtered meat to consumers, restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, and boarding houses. He introduced the Industrial Hemp Act as an amendment to the Farm Bill.  Massie sits on powerful the House Rules Committee and assured its passage. The act excludes hemp from the definition of marijuana. He is supporting a bill that would block the Pentagon from forcing Covid shots on servicemen. He is asking questions on Twitter rather than making declarations, a tactic he says, that thus far bypasses censorship.

Many longtime sufferers from chronic illnesses are motivated to join the food/health freedom movement. That is true of John Moody, who runs a family farm with his wife and three children in Kentucky and is founder and director of, an online platform for homesteaders and farmers.

The NZ authorities that are fine with you drinking glyphosate, 1080 & chlorine have recently conducted raids on raw milk suppliers throughout the country

Posted by M. C. on December 8, 2019

Mercantilism, banksterism and control is not limited to the US nor EU.

A number of raw milk suppliers NZ wide have just been raided by MPI. As a consumer of raw milk myself I’ve watched this with interest over more than a decade. The regulatory conditions have gradually tightened up over the years, so that suppliers I’ve spoken with have said it’s become more and more expensive to keep up, costing thousands of dollars, jumping through impossible hoops to remain registered with all boxes ticked. These raids will all of course have the effect of frightening people off supplying altogether, or simply price them out of business as has already happened with many.
(Note in the very apt meme below raw milk is not as yet banned in NZ but as I say, I’ve been watching the signs and it certainly looks to be headed that way).

NOTE: it’s not banned in NZ …. yet

Such are the vagaries of the NZ corporation (aka government) that is happy to see the known carcinogen glyphosate in your breast milk & water, chlorine in your water (another carcinogen),1080 in your food chain, a myriad of other chemicals, hormones & antibiotics in your food supply, yet treat suppliers of a highly nutritious natural product as criminals. (Note also, ‘probable carcinogen’ is about as close as they’ll admit with glyphosate but hey, the grossly tumoured rats and the current law suits going on in the US right now are surely enough to make you want to stop using it?)

Note raw milk is been described in the articles as ‘dangerous’ for heaven’s sake. And it’s reported people have been sick from drinking it? Really? No details of exactly who and where though. Enough to rark up some suspicion & bias among us by mainstream media doing its job well as always. Humans have consumed raw cows milk for hundreds of years and not died. Whilst I am all for health compliance, let’s face it, the authorities are simply making it all non viable with their hefty costs. Enjoy it while you still can people … they won’t rest until it’s completely gone as has happened in other countries already.

Please do read this article on how raw milk completely healed a little girl of very pervasive eczema that literally controlled her life:

Hello Dolly, Farewell Eczema

Bigtime SWAT team raw milk bust

Posted by M. C. on August 3, 2011

If this doesn’t convince you things are out of hand, nothing will.  The same thing happened not too long ago here in Pennsylvania on an Amish farm. A few weeks ago a California department of education’s  swat team, yes, they have a swat team, terrorized a family for 6 hours looking for a school loan scofflaw. The evildoer hadn’t lived there for 6 months.  It makes me sick.
