If you wish to complain in support of this women, there are some numbers we can call below in order to put a little heat on these monsters:
Division of Zoning, Permits and Inspections
Fauquier County Board of Supervisors
While looking for the phone numbers, I also came across many articles where the farmers are fighting back against these Gestapo tactics.
Action Alert: Stand up for Personal Property Rights in Virginia
Tea Party Protest In Support Of Virginia Farmer Over Fauquier County Zoning
Fauquier County Agrarian Unrest Comes to America
FAUQUIER FARMERS FIGHT BACK!
As readers of this blog know the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors is considering legislation that would seriously restrict activities in which Farm Wineries are able to engage.
Meanwhile, the criminal mega corporations that write their own legislation in DC, continue to reap the benefits of these policies, in killing off the small and medium sized business in America, to the point where people complain about the evil government and their taxes, when it is these criminal mega corporations that are responsible for this, since they have it all designed where they are not impacted due to their own loopholes put in place.
They work on the state, federal and city level to get what they want and I would not be surprised if they are involved here as well.

You are delusional! The local government is corrupt so your solution is to do away with local control and ask the feds to control them who are even more corrupt? It's easier to root out local corruption then federal. States rights really equates to the right of the people its not a sham it is how this country was built and the reason we are where we are is because we have ceded the peoples rights to federal control! The crapola you are regurgitating has just gotten ridiculous... Sigh!

After researching, it seems the woman was given a warning,not a fine, for holding wine tastings, craft fairs, selling food items not grown on her farm, her friend's child's birthday party, etc. This farm and store is a commercial venture as well as the woman's home property. She is not being treated any differently than my buddy who owns an auto repair shop would be, except that he would have actually been fined many times, instead of just getting a warning after a neighbor complained of code/zoning violations.
While I agree it's a bunch of bull in many ways, they're really just catching up to the standard just about every other business has been held to for decades.
This is just another in a long line of recent stories trying to purport the big bad government is attacking the little guy, and there's always far more to the story than we're hearing.

The world waits with anticipation, for what you ask? The day when America finally has enough and stands back up, to once again pay for freedom with the blood of tyrants, and patriots.
Sadly, this is only a dream I cultivate in my heart, as Americans are either too fat and happy, or too lazy to do anything about it. I don't think it is out of fear, as I havenot seen very many Americans fear and cower to anyone, I mostly see everyone fighting eachother constantly over rediculous crap that is used to divide us and keep us seperated into small segregated groups.

The money you have to pay for a license doesn't even cover the cost for manpower just to issue them. Some actually track business.
For example, if you have a liquer license, every time the police are called, a notie goes on their license. If they get too many troubles, the license is yanked. It is also yanked for serving under aged drinkers.
