This proves the government is out to undermine the people at every turn. PROOF.
Here we have people STARVING and homeless, and they are trying to keep farmers from growing "too much food".
Where are those "overpopulation proponents" now???
How is the world overpopulated if the government has to go STOP people from growing "too much" food?

Any read the article? He's fined for violating local ordanances, not any federal law or regulation.
Yes! Star on that!
From what I've seen on ATS, local governments are the good kind.

Just because you think you can do something in your yard does not make it legal.
I'm on the City Council in my small town and I can see exactly how this can happen and I agree that it has to be zoned appropriately. It's one thing to have a small personal garden it's another to have a small agricultural business in a sub-division. 2 acres is a huge garden!

I just watched this story on the local news a few minutes ago and calling this guy a farmer seems to be a bit of a stretch. From what I could see he is doing this in a subdivision.
I'm all for his freedoms but I can also imagine how I'd feel about my property values if my next door neighbor converted his yard into a farm.
