The relentless pressure by the FDA to stop the sale of raw milk has now hit the Amish in Pennsylvania. The article was on infowars.com (article). Apparently, Rainbow Farms was raided by US Marshals, Troopers and, of course, our friends from the FDA, over some sort of interstate issue.
Things are getting worse rather than better out there. I used to buy my raw milk directly from the Amish in Upstate New York, where we had a vacation home. Many of the Amish now live upstate, and their natural approach to farming is a great advantage if you are near enough to them to purchase their produce or raw dairy products.
I used to buy their eggs, with egg yolks as orange as…an orange; their deep yellow raw butter; and their raw milk and cream. We would pack the back of the car with as many eggs, milks, etc. as possible. We no longer own that house, so all my raw items are purchased through a local co op; however, I do miss those days and that wonderful connection to my food source.
Sadly, our food is being policed in the wrong direction. Where are the food police when it comes to processed junk food, which permeates our food stores?
Ah yes, the food police and the junk food companies work together. How silly of me, I thought this was the United States of America.
