Fog in the Valley
Ruta's comment on my post for today, is instructive. Although I have no experience with the law in the British Isles (UK), my experience here in the U. S. suggests that the kind of governmental intrusion to which she speaks, is more for the benefit of the government (fees that can be collected and multiplied, squeezing out the marginal farms in favor of the corporate enterprises, etc.)...the case can be made, I believe, that unless we stand our ground here in the U. S., the same kinds of impositions of governmental "regulation" could impact self-sufficiency endeavors. Don't miss Ruta's post.
I took the above photo this morning over our back fence looking at the neighbor's farm.
