Help Amos Miller Stay in Business

Four Ways to Help:

1. Donate to Amos Miller’s farm operation (www.givesendgo.com/supportamosmiller)

2. Urge Russell Redding to Release Detention Order of Amos Miller’s Food (see below)

3. Call on Pennsylvania’s “conservative” leaders to stand against tyranny (see below)

4. Join Amos Miller’s Private Membership Association and Order Products That Are Not Currently Detained (https://amosmillerorganicfarm.com/)


Amos Miller, an Amish farmer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, has repeatedly faced harassment and persecution from state and federal agencies because of his stance on food freedom. Miller’s customers voluntarily chose to join Miller’s private buying club where they have access to natural and raw products. They are aware of the “risks” of eating such foods and prefer natural food, rather than chemical-laden, commercially produced foods. However, the government of Pennsylvania refuses to allow Miller and his customers the freedom to buy and sell food – one of the most essential things in all of human life.

On Jan. 4, 2024, agents from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture raided Amos Miller’s farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, seized some of his property, and “detained” much of his products, essentially preventing Miller from continuing operations.

On January 11, 2024, state agents extended the detention order.

A notice affixed to a walk-in cooler door stated that the food in the cooler “has been detained by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture pursuant to Section 5726(a) of the Food Safety Act.” The notice states that the food “may be adulterated or misbranded and shall be detained.” The notice states that it is “unlawful to remove the food from the premises or to dispose of it without approval of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.”

Russell Redding is the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. He can be contacted at (717) 787-4737 or 2301 North Cameron Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110. Please contact Redding and respectfully urge him to stop the harassment of Miller. Below you will also find information to contact Pennsylvania representatives who can also urge Redding to act and keep Amos Miller in business.

Body

Amos Miller, an Amish farmer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, has repeatedly faced harassment and persecution from state and federal agencies because of his stance on food freedom. Miller’s customers voluntarily chose to join Miller’s private buying club where they have access to natural and raw products. They are aware of the “risks” of eating such foods and prefer natural food, rather than chemical-laden, commercially produced foods. However, the government of Pennsylvania refuses to allow Miller and his customers the freedom to buy and sell food – one of the most essential things in all of human life. On Jan. 4, 2024, agents from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture raided Miller’s farm, seized some of his property, and “detained” much of his products, essentially suspending his business and putting his employees and associated farmers in jeopardy. A notice on one of Amos Miller’s walk-in coolers reveals that nearly all of Amos’ food has been placed under detention by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Agriculture.

Appeal to Secretary Redding or Pennsylvania Legislator

For Sec. Redding: Please immediately repeal the food detention order and allow Amos Miller to continue to serve his customers by selling natural, organic food without government intervention.

For Pa. Legislator: Please call on Secretary Russell Redding to immediately repeal the food detention order and allow Amos Miller to continue to serve his customers by selling natural, organic food without government intervention.

Please encourage others to contact Redding or Pennsylvania representatives as soon as possible.
