The schemed famine has commenced in Oregon. Under the guise of water conservation and protecting groundwater, the state of Oregon has been aggressively closing small farms and market gardens. In the same way that big hospitals use government-issued certificates of need to block competing projects or land developers use eminent domain and fake blight to drive out property owners, Oregon bureaucrats are erroneously labeling small family farms as concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and restricting their use of water to effectively shut them down “for the environment.”

Significantly, the small farms under attack are not at all CAFOs. However, due to Oregon’s government and the state’s lucrative dairy industry joining forces, the overregulation is enough to drive many small farmers out of business. In its directive defining “what is a CAFO,” which was reinterpreted in 2023, the state describes a CAFO as “the concentrated feeding or holding of animals or poultry, including but not limited to horse, cattle, sheep, or swine feeding areas, dairy confinement areas, and poultry and egg production facilities where the surface has been prepared with concrete, rock or fibrous material to support animals in wet weather.”

Thanks to the state’s cleverly worded definition, the legislation effectively targets small farms. For example, a few-acre homestead with pasture, two milking cows, and a few chickens qualifies as a CAFO if it has any spot on the property that uses gravel or rock as a pathway to reach a small barn or a coop. The National Review noted that with significant implications and a steep price tag, a small farm labeled as a CAFO would have to install drain lines and holding tanks exceeding $100,000 to provide equipment the farm neither needs nor wants.

Besides CAFO regulations, a policy put in place in 2021 during the pandemic tyranny restricts the way farmers can use water. Legally, rainwater is the only water that farmers are allowed to collect in Oregon. All the other water—from rivers, streams, and even groundwater on private properties—is considered a public resource. This means farmers in Oregon cannot use water from their own private wells to irrigate their crops and hydrate their animals without first getting a permit. This is yet another sneaky tactic strategically established during COVID to destroy small business owners.

Not taking the dire situation lightly, small farmers in Oregon are fighting against the new CAFO legislation. Sarah King, who owns Godspeed Hollow Farm in Newberg, filed a lawsuit against the state’s Department of Agriculture, alongside other Oregon farmers. King began her small milk-producing operation on her eleven-acre property in 2017. She and her husband own no more than two or three milking cows at a time. King explained that they intentionally keep things simple, noting that their animals know the routine. Free to wander most of each day, she said that her well-loved cows often come in from the fields and wait in the barn for their turn to be milked, then back out they go. The National Review explained:

Sarah’s clients contract with her in a “herdshare” system: They purchase an interest in the animal for a portion of its produce. They like the sustainable, ethical, transparent business model — and the raw milk that comes with the arrangement.

Industrial dairy farms follow a different model. They aim for efficiency and economies of scale by keeping tens of thousands of cows. These operations keep the livestock penned up for extended periods of time, producing significant waste in concentrated spaces.

Any sentient being who ponders the heartbreaking reality behind industrial dairy farming for more than a split second surely concludes that tens of thousands of cows penned up back to back for hours on end is cruel and inhumane. But alas, that aspect is left out of regulations which are strictly formulated with the deep state’s quest for profits and control.

There is a fundamental difference between the environment-ruining Big-Farm practices carried out in Industrial farming and the intentional methods employed at Godspeed Hollow. Indeed, Godspeed Hollow, one of Oregon’s smallest players in the farm game, is no threat to Industrial Farming, thus the reinterpretation of the CAFO rules makes no sense, unless, as we’ve stated before, it’s about something bigger. After all, Sarah’s animals are only “confined” for 15 minutes per day and are otherwise free to graze and roam.

The forced famine underway in Oregon and elsewhere is undoubtedly tied to the Great Reset, which was fast-tracked here in the United States in August 2022 when President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). A deceitfully clever path towards the global elite’s much anticipated green energy transition, the IRA contains $394 billion in tax incentives, grants and loans directed at green investments in the sectors they aim to control. Globally, despite the massive farmer protests largely ignored by big Pharma-funded mainstream media, eliminating small farmers is at the top of the list.

How much longer can the voice of the people—both here and abroad—be silenced? If those trying to destroy our health and take away our right to choose the food we eat have their way, freedom as we know it will no longer exist. Importantly, with that in mind, speaking up pays off. For now, Sarah and other small farmers in Oregon have a reprieve from the ridiculous CAFO rules thrust upon them. While the lawsuit is in play, the Oregon Department of Agriculture has agreed to, for now, put a halt to enforcing its revamped CAFO rules, which were slated to take effect on April 1.

Nonetheless, a tough battle lies ahead for small farmers across America, from being forced to calculate greenhouse gases to exposure to GMO seeds. To fuel his agenda, the Biden administration has handed billions in taxpayer dollars to the nation’s largest agriculture corporations, associations, and universities to destroy small farmers. With grandstanding led by Bill Gates, mega companies from Cargill to the Nature Conservancy are on board, with $40 million in advertising dollars to Farm Journal to control the message put out by the state-run mainstream media.
