This is very sad. It just goes to show disconnected Americans have become from their food when neighbors shut down our very right to feed ourselves. Most home farmers raise antibiotic and GMO free chickens for their amazing eggs. Another win for Big Ag.
Gail Philburn of the Michigan Sierra Club told Michigan Live, the new changes..
“effectively remove Right to Farm Act protection for many urban and suburban backyard farmers raising small numbers of animals.”
Backyard and urban farming were previously protected by Michigan’s Right to Farm Act. The Commission ruled that the Right to Farm Act protections no longer apply to many homeowners who keep small numbers of livestock.
Kim White, who raises chickens and rabbits, said,
“They don’t want us little guys feeding ourselves. They want us to go all to the big farms. They want to do away with small farms and I believe that is what’s motivating it.”
The ruling will allow local governments to arbitrarily ban goats, chickens and beehives on any property where there are 13 homes within one eighth mile or a residence within 250 feet of the property. The new changes affect residents of rural Michigan too. It is not simply an urban or suburban concern.
