As children we were raised on raw farm milk that came in 10 gallon cans from a farm in Waynesboro.None of us ever had any adverse problems w/ raw milk,and the homemade whipped cream and butter were far better than anything in the grocery store.Give the guy a break already.

Nolt should receive mercy from the court and a variance.
He has the support of his community.

The agri-conglomerates haven't been doing such a hot job of keeping our food supply safe. It seems like there is always something on "the do not buy, do not eat" list for some reason or other.

If people are thriving on raw farm milk from the Nolt farm then they should be allowed, by law, to consume it.

It makes a lot of sense to do what works for us.
If diseased people were complaining, maybe taking this man's equipment would be in order. But where are the sick people? Who's being hurt by consuming raw farm milk?

That is such a bunch of bunk. Somebody's got their knickers in a bunch cuz' this farmer is cutting out the middleman. I drank milk straight from the cow for years and I'm still kicking! The Amish drink their milk straight from the cow too! Don't hear of anybody going after them about it. Geesh!

The issue here is not whether raw milk is safe to drink or not,the man broke the law.A permit is needed to sell raw milk from your farm, Mr Nolt did not have this permit which by the way is free.Because of this he was fined and his equipment confiscated.

You need a permit to fart anymore. Doesn't make it right and when laws aren't right and people disagree with them, they should be ignored. That's what freedom entails.
