Farm-to-Fork Dinner Fiasco

Not even ten minutes ago, an e-mail from the FTCLDF (Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund), that relayed a story that really got my goat for the morning... A CSA farm in Nevada was hosting a "Farm-to-Fork" meal for friends, and town locals, but right before the guests sat down to eat, who should arrive but a FDA inspector. The inspector took one look at the food they were serving (organically grown, local veggies, grass-fed meats from neighbors, etc.) and told the farm owners that they could not serve that food, that it needed to be thrown away immediately and have bleach poured over them. They weren't even allowed the option of feeding the food to their pigs, instead of throwing it away. You can read the entire story HERE. And I attached a video of some footage as well...

This sort of thing makes me outraged. To save everyone from reading a tirade, I will prefer to say that what happened at this farm was plain evil.

PS: The inspector was rude, too.

Aye, things like this never fail to make my blood boil. It's just plain wrong!
