The trial of Vernon Hershberger, another raw milk farmer facing prison time for producing real food

(NaturalNews) Just a few days remain before Amish raw milk farmer Vernon Hershberger of Wisconsin faces a corrupt legal system with an ingrown vendetta against the production and distribution of real food. Beginning on May 20, 2013, at 8 a.m., Vernon, who has been falsely accused of committing numerous food distribution violations in his home state, will stand before both jurors and judge at the Sauk County Courthouse in Baraboo, Wisc. And right across the street at the Al Ringling Theatre, a cohort of food freedom patriots will gather to support him and educate the public about this important issue with an even known as Grow Your Food Freedom.

In case you missed it, Vernon is one of many family-scale farmers that in recent years has been illegally targeted by both the state and federal government for producing clean food and sharing it with his friends and neighbors. Vernon has been operating a private food club that distributes raw, unpasteurized milk and other goods from his farm to local shareholders, a setup that does not require, and actually prohibits, the uninvited involvement and interference of state and local governments.

But Wisconsin's oppressive, food industry-influenced agriculture department, which is vehemently opposed to the consumption and distribution of raw milk, along with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided back in 2010 to go after Vernon, raiding his property and threatening him with persecution for the non-crime of sharing farm-raised food with consenting private club members. And what has taken place since that time against this innocent man and his family can only be described as malicious food terrorism by rogue government forces on a mission to destroy food freedom.

You can read a full account of Vernon's battle with the authoritarian police state here:

Though he has committed no crime whatsoever, Vernon has been forced into a trial where he will have to defend himself against four criminal misdemeanor charges, none of which are valid. If ultimately convicted of these charges, Vernon faces up to 30 months, or two-and-a-half years, in jail, as well as fines amounting to over $10,000.

I'm just thrilled they are there to protect us from raw milk and throw those dangerous noncriminals in jail!

Yep, probably have to boot out a child molestor to make room.  Raw goat milk is the only milk we drink.
