Its crazier than that. Id never heard of this, but it sounds as if the government can create set-asides in any sort of product it wants, not just raisins. Corn, beef, wheat, soyyou name itin the name of regulating markets for fair prices.
It's crazier than that.
The New Deal era law says that all products a farmer produces, even the crops he never intends to sell at market, are regulated by the government.
Why you might ask?
Because the crops he raised he will consume himself will affect the market by not buying government controlled market products.
How's that for compete government control of your food?
