Updates from the front
What’s all the fuss about (raw) milk? And why is the FDA saying you don’t have the right to choose what you eat?
The nationwide demand for raw dairy products has been steadily increasing, despite the fact that strict regulations can make it difficult to find. At the same time, more small dairy farms and private buying clubs around the country (including California) are being raided and harassed, sometimes at gunpoint. Why? How has something as basic as milk become the focal point of political passions?
Rarely seen in one city at the same time, the evening’s speakers are on the leading edge of the raw milk wave. Gain a greater understanding of the issues, the politics, and the ways that raw dairy is influencing a national discussion on food rights.
Don’t miss this very special event!
Suggested donation $15
Proceeds will be divided between the local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Rawesome Community Defense Fund. Event sponsored by Wise Traditions, a local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation, and The Raw Milk Institute.
