Bill HR875, basically it makes home gardening illegal and if you grow food anyway you can be searched and have your property seized. What a load of crap this is, it's like an extension of the Patriot act to empower the government to do whatever the hell they want. Can't even have an egg laying hen or you become subject to inspections.

It seems his price(per 100#) I think has been cut so much because of a min.price act of some kind, that he might just start dumping what he can`t give away & start back into regular farming. Between the regular inspections & rules about everything it just isn`t worth it, he even had to get permission to put a couple pigmy goats on his farm.
