Feds Take Down Amish Farmer... Over Milk

Our government at work.

A year-long sting operation came to an end this week.  In that time, the government used fake names and surprise inspections all to nab the people at Rainbow Acres Farm in the D.C. area.  The reason:  they were selling milk.

Unpasteurized milk, to be precise.  Asked for comment, the government released this statement: “It is the FDA’s position that raw milk should never be consumed.”  Therefore, the Amish farmers at Rainbow Acres had to be brought down.

Asked for comment, one Washington resident stated, “I look at this as the FDA is in cahoots with the large milk producers. I don’t want the FDA and my tax dollars to go to shut down a farm that hasn’t had any complaints against it. They’re producing good food, and the consumers are extremely happy with it."

Is this the government over-reaching?  I guess you can decide.  But up here in New York, they've banned apple cider because of supposed health risks that eating/drinking raw apples might have.
He's got a carton of milk!  Shoot to kill!
More from The Washington Times:
The FDA’s actions stand in contrast to other areas where the Obama administration has said it will take a hands-off approach to violations of the law, including the use of medical marijuana in states that have approved it, and illegal-immigrant students and youths, whom the administration said recently will not be targets of their enforcement efforts.

Raw-milk devotees say pasteurization, the process of heating food to kill harmful organisms, eliminates good bacteria as well, and changes the taste and health benefits of the milk. Many raw-milk drinkers say they feel much healthier after changing over to it, and insist they should have the freedom of choice regarding their food.

One defense group says there are as many as 10 million raw-milk consumers in the country. Sales are perfectly legal in 10 states but illegal in 11 states and the District, with the other states having varying restrictions on purchase or consumption.

  5. How did all the people survive before they had pasteurized milk? Very well.I have a friend who had a good bit of health problems, seemed Doctors could not find the problem and help him, till one pinpointed it to using pasteurized milk, he switched to raw milk and his health was restored, so you should be able to choose for yourself which one you want to use, not the FDA.

  6. Good Grief...How does the FDA think people survived years ago..STUPID..I would rather have milk straight from the farm as in the store. Tastes 10 times better and a lot cheaper. Nothing like an ice cold glass of FRESH milk. Government always trying to control people...
