Wisconsin Raw Milk Dairy farmer acquitted on three of four charges

Good news but disturbing that they found him guilty of one of the charges.

Baraboo — Dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger was acquitted on three of four criminal charges early Saturday morning in a trial that's drawn national attention from supporters of the raw, unpasteurized milk movement.

Jurors in Sauk County District Court deliberated about four hours, until nearly 1 a.m. Saturday, before returning a verdict of guilty on one charge of violating a holding order placed on products on the Hershberger farm, following a raid on the farm in the summer of 2010.

The 41-year-old farmer faces up to a year in jail and $10,000 in fines on that conviction. A sentencing date will be announced later, said Judge Guy Reynolds.

Good news in the long run. Still a very petty,

frivolous, costly law suit. deserved nullification given the total lack of evidence from the state to prove their own damn charges.

Hershberger said he was pleased with the acquittals, and that now he can return to his farm in Loganville and continue to run his food store without a retail license because it's a members-only buying club.

"I can continue to feed my community," he said.
