  1. Forsman Farms estimated at least tens of thousands of chickens were killed, up to several hundred thousand. Some chickens in adjacent buildings were also affected, mostly from smoke inhalation. The loss will affect the egg market and local jobs in the community. The farm fire is believed to have been accidental but the state fire marshal is investigating the cause. Dozens of food processing plants have been destroyed by fire recently, leading critics to wonder if it is more than a coincidence and, if so, who is behind it? What are your thoughts?

A Saturday night fire destroyed a poultry building at Forsman Farms. A farm spokesperson says at least tens of thousands of chickens were killed in the fire.

Cleanup is underway at Forsman Farms in Howard Lake after a fire on Saturday night.

According to the Wright County Sheriff’s Office, crews responded to the scene off Highway 12 around 10 p.m.

Sgt. Troy Wachter told KARE 11 the fire destroyed a poultry building with an estimated 200,000 chickens inside.

Forsman Farms spokesperson Jon Austin said they do not have a firm number yet but they’re estimating at least tens of thousands of chickens were killed, up to a couple hundreds of thousands. Some chickens in adjacent buildings were also affected, mostly from smoke inhalation.

Eddie Olson was having a bonfire in his backyard, about six miles away in Cokato, when he started hearing sirens.

“I’m a SKYWARN spotter so I do a lot of radio communications and stuff and this is one of maybe 50 radios I have. I just grabbed one and heard that they were dispatching other departments. So I knew it was big,” Olson said.

Olson filmed video at the scene of the fire.

“It’s a lot of chickens. It’s a hit to the egg market, it’s people’s jobs, it’s a local community. So any time anything big like that happens, it’s not good,” Olson said.

One more than one is no longer a “coincidence.”

The way to fight this deliberate sabotage is to decentralize the food supply. It’s pretty easy for our enemies to destroy a single chicken farm with 100,000 animals, but it would be much more difficult for them to send their goons to 10,000 small farms with 10 animals each. This could be done with fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other varieties of livestock. Let us deny Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, and the other criminals their subjugation of us by starvation. Massive and rapid expansion of small-scale food production will greatly harden our battle positions.
