    Would that be nice if all the towns and cities follow suit?

  3. You really think this is the answer ? So if I produce beef with e-coli then so what. If I make a batch of bathtub gin that makes people blind, well to bad.

    Everyone should have a choice whether to buy from you or not. Its not the government's place to tell you how to live, what to buy, what to sell.... I could go on.

    But it is the government that ends up paying for all of the lawsuits that follow.

    I think this is a good idea, with the proviso that the usual standards of food safety apply. I would like to know for example that cattle etc are slaughtered humanely and that cheese is made in hygienic conditions. If people want to buy unpastuerised milk I'm sure they will want to know that the dairy herd is TB tested etc. I think this could in fact improve the quality of food production.
     
  8. So it would all have to be inspected.
     
  9. And if someone didn't want to have any inspections then could they still sell their stuff ?
