Sedgwick, Maine Declaired Soverenty Over it's Own Food

Fresh Eggs For Sale

This is pretty inspiring!  Sedgwick Maine's citizens have declaired their rightful soverenty over their food.  This includes chickens, eggs, raw milk, vegetables, and more.  Here are three quotes that get to the point of the matter.

"Sedgwick citizens possess the right to produce, process, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing."

"It shall be unlawful for any law or regulation adopted by the state or federal government to interfere with the rights recognized by this Ordinance."

"Patrons purchasing food for home consumption may enter into private agreements with those producers or processors of local foods to waive any liability for the consumption of that food. Producers or processors of local foods shall be exempt from licensure and inspection requirements for that food as long as those agreements are in effect."

This helps the small producer/farmer by freeing them from government regulations that are often written by the large corporations to reduce local competion.  We all need more food freedom.
