Source: Legal Issues for Homesteaders and Farmers
As Joel Salatin states: “Everything I Want to Do is Illegal”. There is no more truthful statement today than that; such a sad reality. The civil-liberties lawyer and writer, Harvey Silvergate wrote a book titled “You Commit Three Felonies a Day”. You, the average joe, commit three felonies a day without homesteading or farming. The issue is that while the average joe commits three felonies a day, the government regulators target farmers and homesteaders-yes, there is a big bulls-eye on your homestead. Why? I believe it is because we do not toe the line.
