This event is not sponsored by the Weston A Price Foundation; we are sending this to our members as a courtesy.
As the state of Minnesota continues to prosecute Alvin Schlangen, farmer and founder of Freedom Farms Co-op, we need to rally to his defense!
Please join the Raw Milk Freedom Riders for a
Two Day Event in Support of Food Freedom
May 13 and 14, 2012
Please support Minnesotans right to choose nourishing foods.
Minnesota farmer and founder of Freedom Farms Coop, Alvin Schlangen, faces jail time for four misdemeanor charges for providing nourishing foods to his private buying club members. The charges are for allegedly handling food without a permit, mislabeling food, and handling unprocessed, fresh milk – all of which are crimes according to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA).
Additionally, community members who serve as organizers and distribution points for the club received warning letters that the MDA is conducting investigations against them, and if they continue to help provide fresh food to club members, they will face prosecution.
If you are attending from out of state and need help with logistics, contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
