Processing meat “the old fashioned way” on your own property in the U.S. can now lead to jail time, as has been proven by an Amish man from Pennsylvania who was threatened with a hefty prison sentence and issued a whopping $300,000 fine for doing just that.
Amos Miller said he is being persecuted by the Biden administration for practicing his religious freedom to raise and prepare food the way he believes God intended food to be raised and prepared.
But in what feels like a Christmas Miracle, Amos Miller’s major food freedom case took a turn for the best.
“Amos Miller will not spending Christmas in jail and is no longer facing imminent bankruptcy,” said his attorney, Robert Barnes, in a video interview.
ReturnToNow report:The Amish typically shy away from publicity, as a part of their humble religion, but Pennsylvania farmer Amos Miller decided the USDA’s war against him and other small, organic farmers is the hill he will die on and is prepared to take his battle all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.
The USDA (aka Big Ag) has been harassing Miller for years – first for his sale of raw milk, and now for his sale of truly raw meat.
Many of us have become aware of the difference between raw, grass-fed milk straight from the farm, and the pasteurized garbage approved by the FDA… but not many of us realize that the expensive, grass-fed, “raw” beef we are buying at the grocery store isn’t really raw.
If it’s USDA-approved, it’s been treated with antibiotic chemicals, which are not accurately labeled as such.
“The USDA processing plants require the meat to be treated with a chemical cocktail of citric acid, lactic acid and peracetic acid,” Miller’s spokeswoman Anke Meyn told Returntonow.net. “It’s not citric acid from oranges or lactic acid from sauerkraut. It’s all created in a lab. It’s a synthetic sterilizer that causes many health problems.”
Ironically, because Miller does NOT use antibacterial chemicals to sterilize his meat, the USDA considers it “adulterated,” and convinced a federal judge to force him stop selling it several months ago.
