A useful website for finding real, unpasteurized milk in your area. RealMilk.com campaigns for a consumer’s right to choose what milk they want — an especially important campaign in states like California, where farmers who provide real milk are treated like drug dealers and routinely harassed by the state and federal governments.
Speaking of governmental harassment, the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund was set up to defend small farmers raising all sorts of organic and traditional foods from over zealous government regulation. It sounds too bizarre to be real, but federal agents routinely descend on farms in raids, forcing small farmers to kill their own livestock and much more. Consider supporting their work to keep the government out of our kitchens and have a look at some of the problems they’re combating.
