Joel Salatin’s Testimony on Food Freedom in Maine

Joel Salatin is one of my heroes.

He and his family have shown us a better way to raise and relate to our food.

I would never have thought growing up that the government would erect the kind of food practices with which we now live–all in the name of  “public safety”–two words that should give us great pause as they allow too-strong industries to literally roll us into their goals for profit.

Joel was in Maine in late April to testify to the Maine legislature on a bill that allows our “right to food” we choose.

Here’s a small quote:

I can’t imagine a more basic human right, a more bi-partisan issue, than protecting my right to choose my body’s food. Who could possibly think that such freedom of choice should be denied? We allow people to smoke, shoot, preach, home educate, spray their yards with chemicals, buy lottery tickets, and read about the Kardashians: wouldn’t you think we could let people choose their food?
