TO OUR MANY FAITHFUL MEMBERS OF AMOS MILLER’S ORGANIC FARM
It appears that the final chapter in our court case with the USDA will soon be coming to a close. We thank God for His guidance on this long journey and look forward to the future with hope and joy.
We will go through a period of several weeks during which we will be required by Court Order to halt our sales of meat and poultry products. Our coordinators will take no orders for meat products, except water buffalo, rabbit, and fish, during this time. Our hope and prayer are that limitations will be lifted shortly thereafter. We will certainly notify you of any changes as they occur.
In the meantime, we ask that you continue with us in prayers for the future of this operation, and the purity and density of the food we make available to you. Amos will be attending a follow-up court hearing at the Federal District Court of Eastern Pennsylvania in Easton, PA at 1:00 PM, April 12th, and invites you to attend in support of the farm. The address for the courthouse is:
Holmes Building, 4th Floor
101 Larry Holmes Drive
Easton, PA 18042-7722.
During this same period, we are required to meet all financial liabilities and payments required of us by the Court. With the combination of greatly reduced sales and significantly increased debts, the farm is facing a crisis in financing. Your continued support, in whatever measure you can provide, will be greatly appreciated. You may support the farm either through the “Go Fund Me” website or by sending your donation directly to the farm.
Our faith and trust are in God alone, and He will direct our path!

Smith also ordered Miller to reimburse USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) for its enforcement costs, totaling $14,436.26 Miller has 60 days to make the reimbursement.

To people who are willing to help, all members and prospective members of our private Association:
Miller's Organic Farm (www.MillersOrganicFarm.com) is a 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 to free assembly and the right to choose how our food is processed and consumed without the USDA dictating to the farm.
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 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 make 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.
Our members trust our Amish farmer and his integrity is priceless.
