Another Way to Kill Small U.S. Farmers: Seize Their Bank Accounts on Phony Charges

Story at-a-glance -

  • The U.S. government has seized $70,000 from a small dairy farmer in Maryland because they made bank deposits in increments that were less than $10,000; the feds accused the farmer of “structuring,” or violating the Bank Secrecy Act by intentionally depositing smaller amounts so they would not have to fill out the paperwork required of larger deposits
  • The raid on the farmer was conducted by an agency created in 2009 to go after money-laundering criminals; the agency started out with a bang by seizing $1.2 billion from a real money launderer, but it appears that what it’s interested in now is making criminals out of small business persons, including small farmers
  • Another small family farm in rural Michigan—and possibly others—may be shut down by a new state law that designates certain breeds of hogs as “feral,” and labels them a threat to neighboring hog breeders and croplands
  • Your ability, your right, to purchase and consume pure, unadulterated food grown by small independent farms continues to be threated if you live in the United States; support your local small farmers as much as possible whenever you buy your food
