Raw Milk Rally in DC for Amish Dairy Farmer



Food Freedom Bike Ride to Rally

Raw Milk Drinkers From Around the Country Coming

Larry Alderfer Fisher will ride his bike from Churchville, VA to the Rally for Food and Farm Freedom in Washington, DC, leaving Friday, May 13 and stopping to drink raw milk on as many farms as he can. Larry needs places to stay - farms producing fresh milk or the homes of supporters of farm fresh products. Ride your bike with Larry for a mile, a day, or the whole trip!

Folks from California, Texas, Ohio and Massachusetts have notified Rally organizers they will be coming, as well as folks from closer states. Can you represent your state?

Raw Milk Rally May 16, Washington, DC
Raw Milk Available -- Cow Expected Also!

WHEN: Monday, May 16 · 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Upper Senate Park. Between Constitution Ave NE, Delware Ave NE, ad C St NE. Next to the Russell Senate Office Building.

UPDATES: Stay tuned to the Grassfed on the Hill website for updates!

For the past year and a half, the FDA conducted an undercover sting operation on Pennsylvania Amish dairy farmer Dan Allgyer and his loyal private buying club customers. On April 26, the FDA served Dan notice that it is seeking a permanent injunction against him for (allegedly) introducing raw milk into interstate commerce. In response to this affront of our freedoms, Grassfed on the Hill, the DC area buying club he provides for, organized the rally to support Dan and other farmers targeted by the FDA, and stand up for all our rights. Please join them in DC. Stings on Amish farms and armed raids against our country's farmers are NOT appropriate use of our tax dollars!

Speakers include:

Jonathan Emord, Attorney
Sally Fallon, President, Weston A. Price Foundation
David Gumpert, Author and Real Food Blogger
Mark McAfee, Founder and Owner, Organic Pastures Dairy
Baylen Linnekin, Executive Director, Keep Food Legal


Please pray for Dan and his family.

If this gentleman is in VA and riding to DC I don't know where he is going to find raw milk to drink, unless it is private - it is illegal to sell it or to buy a "share" in a cow here. If we want it we have to get it out of state with cow sharing and at almost $10 a gallon with all costs involved it is cost prohibitive.

It is sad. I grew up on raw milk and LOOK! Still alive.

I wish them all luck. They are going to need it.
