“The money and political power of Wall Street has stolen America’s food system, bankrupted our farmers and ranchers, mined our soils, polluted our environment, wasted our precious water, and left us with expensive industrially produced food that makes us sick.” – Occupy Wall Street Food Day, December 2011
Above: Ranching Reboot – Episode 4 – Mike Callicrate, owner of Ranch Foods Direct, sat down with us to talk about all manner of things from cattle markets, to public food spaces, the Bander, his feedlot and the pathway he built to market.
He shares valuable lessons learned from fighting against the commodity production system and how he’s built his own pathway to the consumer.
We talk about small community slaughter plants and public meat spaces and what that could look like going in to the future. We discuss environmental challenges, the food police and what it means when a Dollar General comes to town.
I do not know how you hold your business and your land. If your business is a “creature of the State”, LLP/LLC/etc., then you fall under the State’s rules and regs. And if so then you have a Deed for the Land. There is a way to show that the EPA and ALL other Federal agencies do not have jurisdiction unless you have asked for a license/permit from the agency. There are over 141 US Supreme Court decisions that prove that the Fed Govt Agencies do not have jurisdiction anywhere in any of the States unless jurisdiction is ceded to them by the State Legislature or by contract by the land owner. Even if jurisdiction is granted any executive branch agency that “rakes” any property from anyone is a Bill of Attainder. This is forbidden by the US Constitution and EVERY State Constitution. It, also, constitutes the practice of Outlawry. Also unlawful!
There are even more things that every land owner needs to know. Please, contact me. My wife and I have kept the feds off of our ranch here in west Texas.
