Cheese It, The Feds!

Morningland Dairy is in big trouble! The small, family farm reportedly got caught up in the Rawesome Food Club raid in California a few months ago. Morningland cheese was confiscated by FBI, FDA, California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), and Health Department agents who entered the raw food club with guns drawn.

Now Morningland Dairy has been ordered by the FDA to destroy 50,000 pounds of raw cheese.

 “In the thirty years of Morningland Dairy operations NO ONE has become ill from consuming their products. Yet they have been ordered by the Missouri Milk Board to destroy ALL of their cheese without actual tests being performed on the cheese stock. This is nearly 50,000 pounds of cheese, or approximately $250,000,” states an 11 October article by Kimberly Hartke posted at

So, here we go again: Another guns-drawn raid on people who work with their own hands to produce real food instead of corporate swill processed by wage slaves. Pray to St. Isidore that the people of the West put an end to this sort of persecution, and pray to him that your own efforts to feed yourselves in a time in which “finance” far outweighs real production is viewed as the norm rather than as the aberration and outrage that it is.

This is the latest outrage perpetrated by the Food and Drug Administration (another taxpayer-funded bureaucracy), based on their farcically-named “Healthy People 2020” initiative, one more social engineering boondoggle created by cubicle-farm bureaucrats rather than actual farmers. While the federal government maintains that the murder of unborn infants is a “right” of the misguided, it also maintains through the FDA that citizens “do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish,” per a brief cited at

Got that? The cubicle-dwellers know what’s best for you and you’d better get used to the idea, because they’re not going to stop until they have you completely under their masters’ thumbs and finally wake up to the fact that they are under them as well.

Traditional Catholics may soon find themselves among the most-threatened by this sort of runaway governance, and we had best take action to prevent it before it becomes nearly impossible to do so. The nations of the West are not structured in conformity with Catholic Social Teachings, but we will have no opportunity to present said Teachings if we do not act cooperatively with those who share at least some of our beliefs; an all-or-nothing approach is likely to prove counter-productive until such time as God intervenes directly to right the ever-growing list of wrongs being perpetrated by those who presume to “govern.”

Here, in brief (the above-cited article should be read in its entirety) is what happened to Morningland Dairy:

Since the Milk Board and the FDA showed up at Morningland on August 26th, they have been “embargoed” from shipping or making any product. They dumped their milk for nearly six weeks before being approved to send it into homogenized, pasteurized distribution. All the while, they have had to pay the bill to keep the dairy and cheese plant operable.

On September 24th, the Milk Board verbally ordered Morningland to destroy their product. Morningland asked that this order be put in writing. One week later the order was hand delivered to General Manager/owner, Joseph Dixon. The order states that in three business days the Milk Board would contact them with when and how the cheese was to be destroyed. Morningland dared to publish a written objection to committing suicide, a rebuttal and proposed remedy. They rebutted many of the stated “facts” in the 10-page order, Destroy Orders: Morningland Dairy.

The Morningland Dairy then offered a reasonable, logical, scientifically sound remedy to destruction on the afternoon of October 6th. The next morning, they were served with a restraining order and preliminary injunction by the Attorney General’s office of Missouri. They were to be in court the very next day. In sum, they were ordered to destroy their wealth on Friday, asked for logic and justice on Wednesday, notified they were being sued on Thursday and ordered to be in court on Friday. At 4:50pm on Thursday, the Attorney General’s office called and canceled court because one or two of their witnesses couldn’t attend. Never mind that a family run dairy and cheese plant with 9 families making a living through it should mount a legal defense against destruction in one day.

Seem fair? A rhetorical question, to be sure.

The Feds are coming, and will keep on coming, until we decide to get going and stop them before we find ourselves force-fed with a mixture of laws and regulations that will make us far more than sick to our stomachs.
