Another Food Processing Plant Attacked, Burned
An unknown organization or government appears to be systematically attacking America’s food processing plants.
At least 15 facilities have burned to the ground this year and industry experts fear the assault could further exacerbate food supply shortages and inflation.
“Personally, I do not remember a time in history where so much damage was done to a single industry in such a short period of time,” laments a Technocracy editor.
Forsman Farms, a large egg producer in Howard Lake, MN, recently reported a fire that killed hundreds of thousands of chickens. “It’s a lot of chickens. It’s a hit to the egg market, it’s people’s jobs, it’s a local community,” says Eddie Olson, a Howard Lake resident who saw the fire. “So any time anything big like that happens, it’s not good.”
No humans were injured during the fire, but extensive property damage was reported to the Wright County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities said the fire appeared to be accidental, but an investigation is underway given the recent increase in such “accidents.”
In 2020, factory fires were reported as the #1 contributing factor towards supply shortages. In 2021, more factory fires were reported than in any year previous.
Here are just a few of the many facilities that have reported fires or explosions in recent months:
- Taylor Farms food processing plant in Salinas, CA
- Walmart distribution center in Avon, IN
- East Conway Beef & Pork meat market in Conway, NH
- JBS Grand Island Beef processing center in Grand Island, NE
- Nestle Prepared Foods facility in Jonesboro, AR
- Maid-Rite meat processing plant in Dunmore, PA
- Wisconsin River Meats meat processing facility in Mauston, WI
- Deli Star Corporation production facility in Fayetteville, IL
Two additional food processing plants were destroyed by plane crashes. And in January, ASML Berlin reported a fire in one of its production buildings. ASML is a German company that supplies equipment necessary for the semiconductor industry (an industry heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic).
It seems unlikely that all of these tragedies were accidents. To quote former Naval Intelligence Officer and James Bond author Ian Fleming: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.”
Enemy action is exactly what Eric Goshen believes is happening within the food processing industry.
“We are being attacked,” says Goshen, a disabled vet and preparedness expert who runs a YouTube channel called Goshen Prepping. “There’s no way you can go through all of these fires, all of these explosions and problems and simply just chalk it up as coincidence. If you do…you are completely naive.”
In the video linked below, Goshen describes the attacks against America’s food processing facilities as acts of “agro-terrorism” that could signal the “very beginning stages of war.” This form of sabotage is nothing new and has been conducted in the past to cripple economies or starve a population in order to incite a revolt against the current government.
Authors’ Note: Though it remains unclear whether these attacks are being perpetrated by a foreign power, or a group of disgruntled individuals, the worst case scenario here is that we are suffering a very effective terrorist assault against the agriculture sector that is designed to undermine the public’s confidence in the government.

Editors note: Here is another list, a bit bigger. We hate to engage in conspiracy theories (sorry, that’s a lie, we kind of like it), but this is just a strange and bizarre series of events. We have not researched all of these.
