Food Sovereignty - Posted by Thomas Woods on March 8, 2011 09:47 AM

Here’s an interesting development: Sedgwick, Maine, has passed an ordinance in effect nullifying the activities of various regulatory agencies by allowing producers and consumers to waive liability and thereby enter directly into agreements with each other regarding raw milk, etc. “Patrons purchasing food for home consumption may enter into private agreements with those producers or processors of local foods to waive any liability for the consumption of that food. Producers or processors of local foods shall be exempt from licensure and inspection requirements for that food as long as those agreements are in effect.”
