"Back in the Revolutionary War days, when this country was founded; every farm had to be Red Meated pigs. What we're talking about here, how the State of Michigan is making it illegal to own pigs that every farm in this country had up until refrigeration was invented."
"It's no longer about pigs, it's about constitutional rights; and the pendulum is swinging right now. It's the same thing we did over 200 years ago. We said "One group does not take away the constitutional rights away from the people."
The Government of the state of Michigan has taken action against hog farmers through the unlawful use of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. By means of implementing an unconstitutional ISO (Invasive Species Order); all breeds of swine that are raised outside or on pasture are subject to be depopulated as of April 1st, 2012.
Mark Baker, a twenty year Air Force veteran, Roger Turunen, Greg Johnson, and Matt Tingsted are the only remaining hog farmers in Michigan outside of the corporate pork industry who have revolted against this order. Roughly 2,000 farms have been affected and many farmers have been threatened with felony arrest and large fines to massacre their herds of heritage swine.
These men are fighting for your freedom to be able to choose what you feed to your families. Currently, the DNR has Bakers Green Acres and the remaining farm warriors under siege, as the Invasive Species Order eliminates all possibilities to sell or to transport their animals across state lines.
