Why Are Farm-to-Fork Dinners Viewed as a Public Health Threat?

Farm-to-fork dinners have sprouted wildly. Most of the beautiful dinners pass in pastoral peace, but others have pit farm independence against government regulation.

Probably seen as a no money threat, these days regulations are required for everything so the people who issue permits can make money. I don't see the difference between a Farm-to-Fork dinner and a backyard barbeque, except for the permits which do not assure safety of food standards, as there is always an incredible amount of filth going on in the licensed food establishments of America.

Thanks Organic for providing the link to the Organic Connections article by Christine Kapperman. At least the Boulder County Government got the message and I hope they do pass supporting Farm-to-Fork dinners. Read and noted.

I have read of many small and large cities starting community gardens. A welcome trend.

because control of food distribution is taken out of the hands of the multi billion dollar agri corporations. the higher ups in the usda were employed by monsanto, adm, etc, therefore, they will do anything to protect the value of their stock. there can't be enough millions in the world to satisfy those greedy slobs!

INFURIATING that they're trying to push licenses for absolutely everything now. YES, I agree, it's just one more way to screw the little guy out of every cent he has and make more money for state and local governments.

Let's see... if I lived on a farm and decided to invite 20 personal friends for a dinner party, and the food just happened to be stuff I'd grown, and my friends ended up pitching in a few bucks to cover costs (or even if they didn't)... They'd make me get a LICENSE for that??

I'm definitely no Repugnican... but that's taking government power just a BIT TOO FAR.
