One of the largest egg factories in America was torched in the middle of the night. It’s the latest in a long series of fires set to food manufacturing facilities all over the nation.
A Wright County egg producer is evaluating the damage left behind from a Saturday night fire. A Forsman Farms spokesperson said they do not have a firm number yet but he estimates at least tens of thousands of chickens were killed. https://t.co/JPkqaQqO6Y @kare11 pic.twitter.com/51F8gE4oea

The Gateway Pundit has provided details on this recent fire at Farm in Howard Lake, Minnesota.
A barn that housed tens of thousands of chickens on Forsman Farm in Howard Lake, Minnesota, one of the nation’s largest egg producers, was set aflame late Saturday night.
According to Forsman Farms, which provides more than three million eggs to the largest retailers in the country, the cause of the fire remains a mystery as investigators evaluate the scene to determine how the barn was set ablaze.
This spells bad news for the egg supply. Not only was present inventory or eggs destroyed, but the animals used to produce new stock were also destroyed as a result of this fire. As anyone who’s worked on a farm knows, chickens take time. It’s a massive blow to an already fragile food supply chain.
“Overnight, a fire destroyed one of our barns at our Howard Lake farm. No one was injured and we are grateful that first responders were quickly on the scene to put out the fire. Unfortunately, chickens were lost because of the fire. We are evaluating the extent of the damage – which appears to be confined to a single structure – as well as investigating the cause of the fire,” a Forsman Farms told Minnesota’s local CBS affiliate.
As the article points out, law enforcement estimates that over 200,000 chickens were killed. The affects of this are going to felt as the farm was responsible for producing nearly 3 millions eggs DAILY. Keep in mind that this was not the first fire that’s happened on an egg facility recently as this Twitter user points out.
USA – Another Farm Fire 😡

You don’t need to be a regular reader of the news to know that there is a food shortage happening all across the United States. From cereals to breads to Pop Tarts, the shelves at local grocery stores are getting more bare each day the Joe Biden administration is running things.
It’s not just optional niceties either. Biden and his team have been passively aggressively stating that things are not as bad as Americans are making it out to be. “Just switch your brand of milk” or “Just change the type of shampoo you use” are common statements from the Left from podiums and on social media. The accusation they are making is that things aren’t that bad, Americans, especially conservative ones are just spoiled.
While there may be some truth to being spoiled, things are much worse than even most Americans realize. We are just now feeling the effects of the baby formula shortage. Mothers with hungry children are frantically trying to find formula for their children amongst all the empty shelves.
Remember: the Biden administration knew about this crisis since LAST YEAR but Joe Biden failed to act for MONTHS

These are not optional things, we are seeing a shortage of things that are essential to survival.
The issue is that the administration knew months ago that this was going to happen. And yet because of inaction, we are now seeing mothers and babies pay the price.
Well things are likely going to get worse when it comes to the food shortages in the States. People may not think that would be possible. After all, we have entire states dedicated to agriculture with hundreds of thousands of acres of food being planted and harvested regularly. However the problem isn’t on the farms, it’s what happens between the farm and our grocery stores that is a major source of concern.
As many of our readers know, there have been an unprecedented high number of food manufacturing facilities that have been mysteriously destroyed over the last year. Here is just a small sampling.
Here’s one from just a few days ago.

This one in March was especially brutal, wiping out a huge chunk of supply to an entire portion of the country.
Well is this going to be the new scare tactic? Are Warehouse fires going to fuel food shortages? “Just asking ” pic.twitter.com/OKFRF0WafT

If you aren’t paying attention you have probably missed all the food processing plants or warehouse fires lately. Over a dozen in the last month I suppose that it’s just a coincidence though huh. Remember the Gov said we will see a food shortage don’t get caught slippin pic.twitter.com/Tf9VKkvF2V

As this Tweet states, more than a dozen of these fires have occurred in just the last few months. We’ve reported on this for months now. When you put all the pieces together, it’s unlikely that these fires and damages to our food manufacturing infrastructure are by chance. Facilities like these have to adhere to strict standards and OSHA regulations for the sole purpose of avoiding situations like these.
Nothing can be confirmed as of yet, but it seems very interesting that all of these things are driving Americans into food insecurity at the same time that inflation is eating away at their dwindling resources. Could it be that uninformed Americans are being backed into a corner so they will accept the first raw deal the Left offers them? Hopefully we won’t have to find out.
