USDA vs Raisin Farmer

“You can’t work for a whole year and then give 47 percent of what you made away and still keep that business afloat,” says Laura Horne, the farmer’s wife.

Farmer had been fighting this kind of treatment from the Government for years. When the raisin farmer was unable to pay the due, he was punished with massive fines and was demanded payments for the raisins which he didn’t surrender. The demands from the Fed would result in either the farmer has to sell the farm, or to be taken the farm away by the Fed.
