One Less Threat

In breaking news, you’ll be pleased to learn that there’s now one less threat facing the world:

The FDA has won its two-year fight to shut down an Amish farmer who was selling fresh, raw milk to eager consumers in the Washington region, after a judge this month banned Daniel Allgyer from selling his milk across state lines, and he told his customers he’ll shut his farm down altogether.

The decision has enraged Mr. Allgyer’s supporters, some of whom have been buying from him for six years and who say the government is interfering with their parental rights to feed their children. But the Food and Drug Administration, which launched a full investigation complete with a 5 a.m. surprise inspection and a straw-purchase sting operation against Mr. Allgyer’s Rainbow Acres Farm, near Lancaster, said unpasteurized milk is unsafe and said it was exercising its due authority to stop its sale from one state to another.

Raw milk is of course so important for our family, and so difficult to purchase, that we bought our own dairy goats. Although it was sad losing our best doe (Queen Anne’s Lace) last week, we had a very good development going into the weekend. One of our other does kidded, and she is providing a boatload of milk above and beyond what her little one is taking. What a blessing!

I’ve asked this question before, but I never tire of asking it again: how on earth did the human race survive drinking this “poison” for 5,000 years, without the FDA to protect us from it?

One thought on “One Less Threat

  1. Seems to me if they would concentrate their efforts on the real effects of aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, dies, soy and everything that is pumped into the general public by the ton, we'd have a healthier America. Oh wait… then they'd be out of a job.
