Solar Powered Fish Farm Denied by DeSoto County Florida violation of FL Law

David Pressler 12/05/2012 @ 1:42pm The Safedome is a transportable 8 ton monolithic concrete dome that makes an ideal grow room adding solar / wind becomes off the grid capable

DRD Enterprises Inc of Davie purchased a fish farm in Arcadia Florida June 2009 within 2 months DeSoto County issued a cease work order on the solar power plants being constructed accusing this company of manufacturing for resale on Agricultural land without evidence to support their claim. 

In Florida there is a Right to Farm Act law that states that ALL farm structures come under the authority of the Department of Agriculture so when I filed my complaint to the Dept of Ag no action or help was given.  The only aid this company did receive was from the counsel for the Dept of Ag in creating a brief for the Special Master Hearing citing the Florida Right to Farm Act and without any sales from this farm the citation for manufacturing on Ag land should be dismissed.

Well DeSoto County disregarded all points of law pertaining to farm rights and prevented any further development of what was to be a solar powered fish farm.  The State of Florida has done nothing to DeSoto County for their actions!  This company has now filed a complaint with the Office of Inspector General for the Dept of Ag not enforcing the laws of Florida, meanwhile DRD Enterprises has a fish farm for sale a Distress Sale
