If Nolt did not want to draw attention to himself, he would have renewed his permit and would try to change the law. He would not need to have Stoltzfus draw attention to himself, either. BTW Nolt seems to have drawn lots of attention by allowing his plight to become public.

The point is - you mis-characterized the reason he did not have the permit.
Im going to resist saying too much more here...The reporting on this story seems flawed and incomplete...
Like:- Are soft cheeses specifically prohibited, or just not covered by the permit? The reporter on says "not allowed" - which could mean a lot of things. How do you make soft cheese?- someone must have a permit...somewhere!!! Is soft-cheese illegal...harmful to the public?
I withhold judgment until a more accurate story emerges.
Wow!The horses a-- is asking a question,by all his posts i would assume he knows everything.

First, understand the Mennonites before posting your inane and uninformed comments!
Second, understand that 'raw' milk is unprocessed milk. Roadside springs provide 'raw' water. We all eat 'raw' vegetables. Some of you eat 'raw' oysters and rare (read- raw) steak.
I grew up on 'raw' milk. The alleged diseases received from 'raw' milk never affected me. I have consumed it for most of my (senior citizen) life. My children and wife also grew up on it. It is not dead or fattening like pasteurized milk.
Anyone may consume their own 'raw' milk if they produce it. I've consumed milk from cows and goats. The health benefits of either have long been known but also equally assailed by the bureaucracy and 'official' knowledge.
Let the farmers alone. They struggle enough without increasing interference from all the other ignoramuses in society.

Not one of today's posters is opposed to selling raw milk. And I to for whatever it's worth drank lots of raw milk on my grandparents farm even before milk inspection laws were passed in Pa. That farm was bordered by our Mennonite neighbors. Ok, Bruce, since the state saw fit to place regulations on milk producers, raw or otherwise, are you saying that certain groups or certain religions should be exempt from these regulations? Nolt certainly believes he is!

They are stupid regulations just to make money on permits. Raw milk is the best tasting of any milk, period. It is more likely to be safer than the water you get from the c-burg water supply.

I am from a family of 8 that was raised on a dairy farm about 55 years ago. All of us drank raw milk and ate home made cottage cheese (soft cheese). We were all healthier than the next generation that was eating food from the store.

The issue with raw milk is that it can be a carrier of disease if the cow is not healthy. I don't think that is a problem anymore on these small organic farms.

Our fresh raw milk would keep for several weeks in the frig.. try that with milk from the store! And when the store milk goes bad it really stinks. The raw milk just turns sour and can still be used for food.

I just thought I would share some of my personal observations about this issue.

Are you saying you are onboard with Rendell and Co on this one?

Get with the program, people. NOTHING is the same as it was thirty, forty, fifty years ago. I sure hope none of you still use an outhouse. Wait...maybe that's why your "organic" milk tasted different...

Let's all take our letter-writing skills and put them to better use. Let our congressmen/women know how we feel about gas prices, the Iraq war, putting a casino in every corner of PA, lowering the drinking age, or even Bush's space elevator.
