Please note: If you are new to my blog you can catch up on the reasons for my raw milk passion and the struggles our own farm have experienced, by reading any of the previous posts on the topic I have written over the last 3 years . To do so, simply enter "Raw Milk" in the search bar under the picture of our house, on the right.
A little quiet on the Illinois raw milk front. At least right this moment. Our next meeting with IDPH is not until July 16. I did receive a phone call from Terra Brockman this morning, one amazing woman, who wanted to interview me for an article she was writing for Edible Chicago.
The piece will focus on raw milk in Illinois of course but will also reflect on the power of community, as in Vernon Hershberger's case. If you've not yet read about the brave steps taken by the jury members in Vernon's case please click on Vernon's link to do so.
It will make you proud of those Americans (and even more ashamed of Wisconsin's legal system)
I was also interviewed by a young chap from National Public Radio (along with two other farmers who belong to The Stewards of The Land as we do). That radio spot will be out sometime in the the next few days. on WIII radio out of Champaign
We are thrilled to be getting all this coverage because the more we keep this issue out in front of people the more likely public health will listen to what they have to say. We have become a group to be reckoned with.
The rebel raw milk drinkers.
