Alvin Schlangen is a peaceful farmer and volunteer manager of Freedom Farms Coop (FFC). This venture serves to connect people with the food sources that meet their high standards for health by providing private access under lawful ownership of farm animals – for dairy food access. This is sustainable farming in reality – where the value of food supports the cost incurred…without government subsidies or harm to the environment. The balance of food options are purchased by the club, for the members.
Over the past two years, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has illegally raided Alvin’s van, warehouse, and farm. The state has now brought multiple charges against Alvin related to food distribution; he faces misdemeanor counts in 3 counties as well as administrative charges. His upcoming trial is in Hennepin County and is history in the making because it is the first time that this type of case will be heard before a jury. If convicted, Alvin faces up to a year in jail and hefty fines… just for helping to connect consumers to the producers and foods of their choice.
