Michael Schmidt  Hanover, ON
Twenty one years ago, Michael Schmidt began a fight that continues today.

His fight, which has now become our fight, is to allow us to choose our own food.

Food rights, for mothers, children, families and all of us.

For two decades he has been harassed and persecuted by the government.

Today, Glencolton Farms is owned by 120 families who stand by Michael to offer a bastion of resistance in this struggle against unfair government action. We are not going away, we are not hiding, for we have nothing to hide.

This is a long fight. Legal bills, communications, advocacy….all are part of the costs of standing up for the rights of people to choose their own food.

Please donate today. A donation of $50 contributes to one hour of legal support for Michael and the owners of Glencolton Farms.

This is a fight for all who care about where their food comes from. Please be part of this today.

This is a battle that has been going on for 21 years. Our Farm has been raided now for the third time since 1994. We keep making small steps in having our right to choose the food we wish to consume respected. The support network has grown and we are coming ever closer to winning this fight. We will concentrate our efforts now on being heard, but most likely charges will come our way. Your contribution will make a difference. This is money will not come to me personally but rather it will go into a trust fund for the purpose of covering the costs (legal and campaigning) of defending food Freedom and will be managed by a team of leaders in the movement.

I did call the number for the Premier. They gave me this number: 4163263074 for Hon. Jeff Leal, Agricultural Minister.

When I read what is written below by Sins Opinion, it makes me very sad. I shake my head that people are so uninformed, and obviously deliberately choose to be. How did we ever survive without pasteurization and the government holding our hand (sarcasm, if you can't tell). Even Louis Pasteur knew he was wrong and that Antoine Béchamp was correct. He acknowledged as much on his death bed.

I thought Canadians were smarter and kinder than Americans, but "The Crown" wants to prevent raw milk there just as much as American so-called public health departments, the sock puppets of Big Milk, do here. Oddly, the British royal family quite possibly drinks raw milk, considering that they rely on homeopathy for their medical care. This is a 99% issue, do we commoners have the same right as the 1% to drink raw milk?

You have every right to choose your own food. That doesn't negate the government's responsibility to ensure only safe food is sold. Standards, such as pasteurization, are ignored lives are put at risk. I'm grateful to you & other farmers that provide a source of food nevertheless I do not support attempts to circumvent practices that have saved many lives over decades past.

It would be helpful to have more details regarding the history and current situation. It sounds like a worthwhile cause but it's hard to know without more information. Thanks!
