Feds raid Amish farm for the crime of selling raw milk

http://www.naturalnews.com/032859_raw_milk_Amish.html

(NaturalNews) A year long sting? 5 A.M raid? An undercover agent using aliases? The crime in question: unpasteurized milk.

It is absolutely absurd to know that these kinds of exaggerated situations actually take place. And even worse, that our tax dollars fund them.

It's no secret that the FDA can be the least reliable source of information regarding health and nutrition. They've proven time and again to care little about the facts that prove holistic approaches cure diseases, and have made extreme efforts to criminalize most of those approaches. They've also made it abundantly clear that our personal freedoms are irrelevant to them.

Raw milk became a target of espionage when the FDA held a yearlong sting operation to stop Rainbow Acres Farm from selling raw milk to customers. "It is the FDA's position that raw milk should never be consumed," said Tamara N. Ward, spokeswoman for the FDA.

The farm's owner, Dan Allgyer, didn't respond, but his customers were furious at what they said was government overreach. "I look at this as the FDA is in cahoots with the large milk producers," said Karin Edgett, a D.C. resident who buys from Rainbow Acres. "I don't want the FDA and my tax dollars to go shut down a farm that hasn't had any complaints against it. They're producing good food, and the consumers are extremely happy with it."

Seriously...the only reason

Seriously...the only reason we were able to get raw milk from our farmers who were selling us eggs was because they found out we were serious RP supporters. They have a cow for their 6 kids but they sell their milk to others they trust. It's like a drug deal.

Exactly

We have friends who sell us...shhhh....raw milk. If we are at their barn and other people come in, we have to act like we are not there for milk. Just in case it's someone who might report it. If we see these dairy farmers out in public, we all pretend that we do not visit their farm for milk. We don't risk mentioning it in public.

Yeah they're all outraged but

Yeah they're all outraged but I don't see anybody going out there and defending them against federal thugs.

Told ya the constitution was rubbish! It empowered those bastards to regulate commerce.

Its funny... farmers drink

Its funny... farmers drink raw milk. Yet they are somehow still alive...

think of this

I was growing up in Communist Poland drinking raw milk -- it was legal.
In the land of the brave & free it is not.

this book: "Everything I want

this book: "Everything I want to do is illegal" is waking my dad up. Which this article and this book are giving me the ideas to do tabling at local fairs. Since I live in a strong farm area with many Amish. Spreading the word like this will be like wildfire when they realize that there is one man running for president who doesn't want to run their lives and their farms.
