How the Food Safety Modernization Act will destroy American jobs, farms and local foods
Jan 12, 2011
How will the new Food Safety Modernization Act actually impact small, local farmers who grow food for CSA’s, local restaurants and grocers? To find out, I took a road trip to Texas and interviewed several small, local farmers to ask them, face to face, how the S.510 Food Safety Modernization Act would impact them.
I spoke toFarmer Bradfrom HomeSweetFarm.com and captured the conversation on video. You can watch it here:
Here’s a quick excerpt from our conversation about S.510 and the small farm exemption in the Tester Amendment:
