Through the production of the series, as mentioned in an earlier post, I've become very acquainted with the fight by many people to gain food freedom rights on many levels, most notably raw milk.
Here's a pic of me and Art the Farmer at the State Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin USA back in July as we attended a Senate Hearing on SB236, which would provide for and allow the sale of some raw milk from family farms. We are in the office of Senator Glenn Grothman, who sponsored the Bill.
The Bill is currently working its way through process and stands a good chance of passing, but it's not perfect and there are still critics of it.
If it happens, smaller farmers like Arthur would have a revenue stream open up to them that could be the difference between surviving or not.
In Art's case it would take more than just the passage of the Bill for it to work for him as he would then have to start milking again and, in itself, that is a huge challenge for him to take on and at the moment really not possible.
So in the meantime he continues to participate in the fight for raw milk because he considers it such an important issue for smaller farms and farmers.
As updates become available on it they'll be passed along here -- stay tuned -- and read below for more on the current raw milk case from out East.
