To people who are willing to help, all members and prospective members of our private Association:
Miller's Organic Farm is our century-old Amish family farm in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania - serving its Private Member Association. The farm raises its animals and other pure foods the way nature intended and we are proud to be entirely chemical, cruelty and GMO-free. The animals are born and raised without antibiotics or hormones and they spend their entire lives naturally and stress-free out on pasture. All of the farm’s food is traceable, pure and grown on nutrient dense soil, under traditional time-honored methods.
The farm is now under attack by the USDA about non-conforming practices, the practices which pre-date the USDA. They are suing the farm to comply with USDA laws, concerning the way the farm animals are processed and how our food is labeled. The farm and its members believe that we have the right of free assembly and the right to choose how our food is processed and consumed without the USDA dictating to the farm. You can read about the lawsuit here .
Our Farmer, Amos Miller, needs your help to preserve traditional farming the way God intended. In order to defend the way the farm has produced its pure foods for more than 100 years, Amos has to hire civil rights attorneys to argue the farm’s case in court against the army of lawyers that the USDA are bringing to the courtroom. Amos has been advised that the preliminary defense of his Amish farm will cost at minimum $23,000 and he needs help raising the money to preserve this time-honored way of traditional farming practices.
Amos and his family know that how the food is grown, raised and processed has a direct connection to the health of the people who consume it. We oppose cruelty in any shape or form. The farm’s focus is to grow real nutrient dense, chemical-free foods, taking care that NO harm is done to neither the animals, the environment or the people who consume our foods. We are what we eat and this is clearly an undeniable fact.
The ever increasing environmental toxins from the overuse of synthetic chemicals makes modern farming very questionable. The ethical part, consuming animal foods, leaves doubts in the minds of many. Members of our community have joined us because they have chemical sensitivities and only started to heal and thrive once they began consuming REAL nutrient dense foods. They depend on our farm foods. Members with a vegan background started enjoying animal foods again once they realized that the death of an animal doesn't have to be cruel. Did you know that our farmer, Amos, is praying before he is planning to sacrifice an animal? Amish farmers are such wonderful, ethical and honest people. We members trust our Amish farmer and his integrity is priceless.
Please note that accepting contributions are not typically allowed in the Amish culture. The Amish believe in earning what you have - through hard work. But Amos needs help to defend our Association and he agreed to accept donations through the GoFundMe campaign, as this is a true "Emergency".
Our latest survey was overwhelmingly positive. Members who submitted their vote wanted Amos to continue farming the way he has been. Please read our July Newsletter where the farmer is explaining the situation in his own words and how you can help.
If you think like we do and you believe that farming can be done and continued the proven and traditional way, please support our Food freedom and our Farmer, Amos, and donate any amount you can.
As Anne Frank wrote: "No one has ever become poor by giving". Human nature to help others is hope for the future.
We aim to reach or surpass the goal by July 28th. Please share and help the cause!
Thank you so much for your support, your prayers and your contributions.
What will my money be used for? The farmer will use these funds to pay for legal representation. He has hired 3 Attorneys who are well versed in the area of Civil rights and our constitution as well as the regulations cited by the Government.
