    It is important to debunk the negative myths that some people actually believe. Get the whole story.

  2. It is so amazing, the amount of information the Weston Price Foundation provides. It is reaching more and more people all over the world! And now this raw milk symposium, for free; truly good work!

  3. Karissa says:

    Thank you for providing this free of charge to the public! I hope many people watch it and are made aware of the health benefits and safety of drinking raw milk.

  4. Linda Brooks Stone says:

    I am 67 years old and have been distributing raw milk or over 30 years. In that time I have seen many Dairies close down and have not seen any interest in the younger farmers to start small community dairying. When I milk my last cow their is no one to supply all the families I distribute to with fresh raw milk in my community. We need to show the profit in direct sale of milk and remove the fear of breaking some law and the fear of sickness from drinking raw milk.

    Thank you W.A.P., Realmilk.com, and FTCLDF for all that you do to promote raw milk.
    Linda
