You are invited to join us for a fun and educational day on the farm!
On Sunday, July 20, we are welcoming KrisAnne Hall and Sheriff Richard Mack to Baker’s Green Acres. We will be roasting a fatted pig and a few chickens and plan to give a few tours. We’ll be learning about the Constitution and Bill of Rights from KrisAnne, and hearing about a Sheriff’s role in upholding those foundational principles from Richard Mack. KrisAnne and Sheriff Mack are coming to support Mark’s prospective bid for Missaukee County Sheriff. A freewill donation will be welcome to help us bring these nationally acclaimed speakers to northern Michigan and to support Mark’s campaign.
The farm will open about 11:00 for tours. The pigs have even promised to have new piglets to show you!
We’ll serve our own “DNR approved” hog, roasted to perfection, for lunch at 12:30.
The speakers will start around 1:30.
KrisAnne Hall is an attorney and former prosecutor who travels the country teaching the Constitution and the history that gave us our founding documents. KrisAnne will connect the dots for you like no one else can! Host of The KrisAnne Hall Show, she pulls no punches,puts Liberty First and gives no quarter to those who hide behind party labels. Like no other host KrisAnne you will tell you what the founders had to say on today’s relevant issues . – See more at: http://krisannehall.com/about-krisanne-hall/#sthash.PPAqy8OE.dpuf
Author/speaker and former Sheriff Richard Mack has served in a wide variety of roles over the course of his nearly twenty year career in law enforcement, which began in Provo, Utah.
Mack began his career with the Provo Police Department as a parking enforcement cadet while attending BYU. A couple of years later he became a full-time officer and was soon promoted to Corporal, Sergeant, and Detective. After nearly 11 years at Provo PD, Mack decided to return to his childhood turf in Arizona and run for Graham County Sheriff. His campaign took off and he was elected in 1988.
He was sheriff for two terms until 1997. He was named Elected Official of the Year by the Arizona-NewMexico Coalition of Counties in 1994, received the NRA Law Officer of the Year, inducted into the NRA Hall of Fame, 1995 Cicero Award, Samuel Adams Leadership Award from the Local Sovereignty Coalition, and Gun Owners of America Defender of the Second Amendment Award.
During his tenure, federal officers informed the sheriffs of the state that they would be required to enforce the so-called “Brady Bill” and run background checks at their expense under the law. In 1994, Mack and six other sheriffs from across the country, challenged the constitutionality of the Brady Bill and ultimately, fought it all the way to the United States Supreme Court, where they won a monumental decision for freedom in a landmark 5-4 split decision based on the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Mack has been a consultant on numerous cases regarding police abuse, brutality, and other misconduct by public officials. He has joined with other members of the law enforcement community to speak out in favor of drug policy reform.
We hope to see you on the farm Sunday, July 20 for a fun and educational time!
It is official. Keith Creagh, the head of the Department of Natural Resources, has officially (albeit quietly) rescinded the Declaratory Ruling. The Invasive Species Order identifying two alleged species of pigs and making one of them illegal still stands, but the description of straight tailed and curly tailed illegal pigs is officially discontinued. Apparently everyone outside the all knowing and wise DNR top staff office, including Judge Sulka per Keith, are misinformed and too confused (read unintelligent) to comprehend the wisdom of the Declaratory Ruling. Therefore, the Director has signed it into oblivion. No apologies to anyone who, in their confusion and misguidedness, questioned the DNR’s benevolent wisdom. Hmmm… Sounds something like a Grimm’s fairy tale. Something about a naked emperor who had been fooled by his own arrogance into thinking he was well dressed while some skulking scoundrels profited from his pompous pretentiousness.
So, if you still wonder what constitutes a “Russian Boar hybrid” or if your pig might be a feral swine, you no longer need to be confused by the Declaratory Ruling. You can just call Shannon Hanna or Keith Creagh. They will generously give you their humble and very wise declaration as to the legality of your pig. Or you can just enjoy the pork chops.
If you live and vote in Michigan’s 4th District, please come to our Meet and Greet at Baker’s Green Acres Farm June 21.
What better way to welcome Summer than meeting with friends, and enjoying the traditional “First-Day-of-Summer” Pig Roast and Hay Ride.
Date: June 21, 2014
Time: 12:00 – 4:00 PM
Location: 1579 Brinks Rd. Marion, MI 49665
Cost: Free, but all donations are very appreciated
Meet Pete Konetchy, a candidate to represent Michigan’s 4th District in the U.S. House of Representatives; Mark Baker, who stood up to and won his ordeal against Michigan’s DNR; and most importantly see the actual pigs the DNR fears and wanted to destroy.
If you’re concerned about the state of government and the destructive policies being forced upon us by Washington, then come and talk to Pete, listen to his solutions — and let him earn your trust, confidence, and support in this Augusts primary. This upcoming election is critical. Unless we elect true constitutionalists to represent us in Washington, our country will not survive.
Government tried to force Mark to destroy his pigs, destroy his livelihood, and force him to submit to their arbitrary discretion. Mark held firm, refused to submit to unjust force, and prevailed – he’s a homegrown hero.
Please take the afternoon to educate yourself about these men, eat great food, get some sun, and have a very good afternoon.
See you there.
Michigan’s 4th District includes Wexford, Missaukee, Osceola, Clare, Roscommon, Ogemaw, Gladwin, Midland, Saginaw, Isabella, Montacalm, Clinton, and Gratiot counties
Our Anyone Can Farm program will help you stretch yourself (and some cheese) this weekend! Check out details at AnyoneCanFarm.com.
If you’ve ever thought about trying a heritage pig that’ll yield really great pork, now’s your chance! Mangalitsa pigs are renowned for their red, flavorful meat and rich, creamy fat. They are at their best when used for charcuterie, or the making of cured meat like bacon and ham. The difference is worth it!
We officially have our first DNR certified non-feral weaner pigs for sale in the great State of Michigan! May 31 is “Pig Day”. You can pick your little fella out, plus you can see how we do it, sample some Mangalitsa goodness, have coffee/tea/lemonade and food with us, and see the farm. Even if you don’t want to feed out a little pig, you can come and do all the rest of it. We’ll be done with chores and ready for company by 10:00. Come on out and procure your own pig!
