Help small locals, not agribusiness | Letters | March 27

Local farmers must be protected if we are to have competition in food production. Today the government protects the commercial farmers – not local farmers.

These commercial farms represent the infusion of the harshest chemicals into our food. That is the reason there are so many health problems today.

Food problems do not come from local, small farmers. Stop supporting the huge agribusinesses that make millions by withdrawing federal protections from them.
