Sonoma County, CA Votes to Ban GMOs

Some more election news out of California. Sonoma County has voted to make it unlawful to propagate, cultivate, raise, or grow genetically modified crops. As I reported in June, the law does not prohibit people from consuming or selling GMO foods, or using genetic modification for medications.

Farmers – this one was totally directed at you.

AmandaMy name is Amanda. I’m the proud daughter (and sister!) of conventional farmers in Southwest Michigan. I’m also a practicing attorney. For 26 years, my family ran and supplied a roadside market selling our own fresh fruits and vegetables. We now farm corn and soybeans.
