    Default No Forced Spraying With Roundup On This Family Farm

    Organic Consumers Association
    May 16, 2017

    County officials want to spray a 2,000-acre certified organic farm in Oregon with Monsanto’s cancer-causing Roundup and other pesticides—and force the farm to pay for it!

    Officials in Central Oregon’s Sherman County say they need to spray Azure Farms in order to eradicate “noxious weeds.” Owners of the farm (which has been USDA certified organic for 18 years) say if the county follows through with its plans, it could put the farm out of business.

    DEADLINE MAY 17: Take action to stop Sherman County from spraying Azure Farms with Monsanto’s Roundup! - See more at:

    Thanks for posting this, Julieanne! I had meant to do it but got called away by sunshine. (Today was the first sunny day in a week and I was desperate to get some gardening done and mow a piece of lawn. Because of the extended cold rainy spring, everything's behind here!) Oh, and I signed from my inbox.

    Hooray! Thanks to all here who participated in contacting the Sherman County authorities. The power of people in small groups joining forces and raising their voices will always prevail!
