Outcome of Vernon Hershberger's raw milk trial, and my own commentary on why I think this was less of a victory for Hershberger, and more of a win for the state.

Quick update on an epic food freedom trial unfolding in right in my backyard- about 100 miles south in the small town of Baraboo, Wisconsin. Food co-op owner, Vernon Hershberger, is being prosecuted by the State for making raw milk available. The Big Agriculture bullies don't like that their monopoly on pasteurized milk is being challenged by a humble farmer, and are seeking to throw him in a cage for a couple of years, level heavy fines, and destroy his family & livelihood. The State, as always, is more then happy to assist in this, and have charged Hershberger on numerous licensing violations. A group of activists have gathered in Baraboo to show support for Hershberger, and have a week long line-up of events.
