Farmers across the state celebrate the Boneta Bill, which just took effect.
Cheers for and from:
“Don Reese and his family [who] operate the store adjacent to their hundreds of acres of land where they grow all sorts of crops, including their locally famous cantaloupes.”
The “flag is flying over the US Capitol in honor of Virginia’s farm freedom legislation.”
And boo-hiss to the Fauquier Times that says Tea Party “and other far-right groups saw Boneta’s conflict as political opportunity.” After two years the Minority Report still has not done an honest story about the whole thing.
But while the good-ole boors in Warrenton sulk, concoct stories, and proclaim the end of the world because farmers can earn a better living, people across the state — and country — cheer Martha Boneta and those who helped free Virginia farmers.
