What's going on lately with all the veggies and, now, cold cuts being contaminated? Thank goodness people aren't being poisoned by everyday food items....it's only raw milk we need to fear. Right? It's always amazing to me to see how many foods are causing terror in our food system, and yet there are outright raids on the poor small farmers trying to provide raw milk to an increasingly larger group of people.
Story after story is surfacing about how hard food officials are on a food that has it's own internal cleansing ability, while incident after incident of food contamination is reported in the news. In fact, it's getting to the point of being a monthly event; and who gets raided? Raw milk farmers.
I'm always so aware of how lucky I am, when picking up my raw milk from the co op I belong to. I'm grateful to the cows; the farmer who helps produce the milk; the guy who drives the truck to Long Island, packed with this nutrient rich food for my family; and the naturopathic doctor who knows enough to give her patients access to it!
I will continue to support those farmers, support my family, and support our health with grass-fed raw milk. I'll also keep envisioning positive changes in the laws that support freedom of producing and buying raw milk. I think appreciation brings more of what you are appreciating: I appreciate my freedom to choose. I appreciate this great raw living food! Support your dairy farmers.
