Midsized farms may ultimately bear the full brunt of the Food Safety bill. But to what extent have the food contamination scares in recent years been traceable to them?
Food is never completely sterile. But the importance of supporting our nation's small farmers outweighs far smaller food safety risks.
I resolve in 2011 to spend even more time in Washington D. C. trying to explain to Jack and his buddies, "why it is a bad idea to allow your constituent to be poisoned."
If a farm seller (small or large) puts his or her product into the wholesale market, they have to play by the same food safety rules as the large players.
