On February 5, 2014, Canadian dairy farmer Michael Schmidt will be back in court to appeal his 2011 conviction of charges stemming from the sale of raw milk. This February marks 20 years of his raw milk struggle.
On his blog, The Bovine, Schmidt notes that since he began his raw milk struggle against the Canadian government 20 years ago, there have been: 3 Popes in the Vatican; 3 U.S. presidents; 260,000 deaths directly related to smoking in Ontario alone; and 0 deaths due to raw milk.
“And raw milk still keeps flowing at Glencolton Farms, because the cows keep coming home in the morning and in the evening – the amazing reality of life,” he writes to his followers. “I have not counted the days in court, the amount of court papers and the money spent on defending our right for food of our choice. I just know that we WILL prevail.”

Prays for Michael to prevail in his quest of selling raw milk legally.
I pray the Gov. quits their pursuit of his selling milk and allows the public who chooses to buy raw milk for their own consumption.
Sure wish someone in WV would sell raw milk. I would buy it, right now.
I am still drinking raw milk, and I won’t stop drinking it for the government or anyone else. I don’t let the government tell me what I can and can’t eat or drink, and I never will let it.
I just wish People would stick with me on my fight for raw milk instead of me having to face it alone. But, since I have to face it alone, I will. I hope all the other people who are fighting for the right to have raw milk will stick with it also.
Keep emailing me letting me know how your fight is going.
Keep up the fight.
There are more humans drinking raw milk world wide than there are drinking the ultra pasteurized, drug and chemical laden product. Raw milk is not the problem. It is the solution! Big business,in bed with governments are responsible for the upsurge in food borne allergies and illnesses caused from consuming the unnatural products of ultra pasteurization. The length of time that ultra pasteurization provides is only possible because all of the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals have been destroyed in the process leaving behind a product that has little food value.
Please don’t give up on raw milk and your fight against the government / Health Board.
Do you know of anyone in the south Okanagan that sells raw milk?
Here I am. Chester Ice again. I am really glad to read about people standing their grounds about raw milk. I am with each and every one of you people that are standing your ground. I am standing my ground also.
I am drinking raw milk, and I don’t care what the Government or anyone else says about me drinking it. I will fight the Government, FDA or anyone that would try to interfere and try to tell me what I can, and can’t eat or drink.
Let it be known to the Government, FDA or anyone else that I am a man, and I don’t let anyone tell me what I can and can’t do.
All of you raw milk people that are standing up for your rights, I want to let you know that I am very proud of all of you. Please don’t give into them. I will be more than glad to stand up with all of you if you need me to stand with you.
