Family Farmers Fight Corporations in North Dakota | RT America

North Dakota is an interesting state. For instance, its Bank of North Dakota is the only state-owned bank in the United States, making it virtually immune to global financial crises.

Now North Dakota residents are taking on Big-Corporate Farming. In their first battle, they have rallied their forces and won. But he war between family farming and corporate farming is about to escalate.

An eventual win for North Dakota family farms would be an important precedent in our country. First, family farms should be the backbone of our nation; they are the foundational model of financial independence for hard-working people. Second, when family farms are empowered, we have a better chance for sustainable food production. Third, any win against large corporate entities is a move in the right direction.

“North Dakota is one of nine states with anti-corporate farming laws that ban large companies from engaging in agricultural production. North Dakota’s citizens recently voted overwhelmingly to keep those laws in place. RT America’s Alexey Yaroshevsky reports that despite the vote, the North Dakota Farm Bureau plans to fight the anti-corporate farming laws in court.” ~ RT America
