This farm has got to go. The good people who tried to stop it from being put in in the first place now have what is needed to re-start the closing process. I don’t want the farmers out of business, I don’t want them in business where they are located now. Have the farm move, have the farm owners clean the site, protect the watershed.

2 farms, one larger and allowed by the ADEQ, one smaller and in trouble because no permits and their pig’s poop runs visible on top of the ground.

Everyone, quit eating so much Ham, sausage, & bacon.

Typical agri-business operation, these are not small time farmers being picked on by the government as the Farm Bureau and others try to lead the public to believe.

Where is Mike Masterson? Why isn't he on duty up there in the middle of all of this?
