(Pioneer Valley, MA) – Local farmers continue to rail against the FDA’s proposal to modernize food safety rules in this country. Gary Gemme (Gem) of the Harvest Farm in Whately tells WHMP’s Bob Flaherty, the proposed regulations aren’t making it easy to for small farms stay in business. Gemme says the Food Safety Modernization Act is intended for industrialized farms…but he says it would impact small farmers disproportionately by forcing them to spend their limited financial and labor resources to comply, forcing many out of business. The local farmers group CISA is urging people to contact the FDA with input before Friday’s deadline.
