In response to the recent raids and armed assaults on our wonderful farmers, a group of raw milk activists has come together to create the Raw Milk Freedom Riders!  On November 1, a caravan of mothers will drive to Pennsylvania, legally acquire raw milk, and return to Maryland with the milk — to the FDA headquarters in Silver Spring — where they will distribute raw milk to their families.

Now is YOUR opportunity to be one of the Raw Milk Freedom Riders!
The group needs a few more brave mothers who can ride in the caravan across state lines with raw milk.  There is some, though minimal, risk involved in this so please be willing to take some risk if you want this amazing opportunity to be in the caravan. The caravan of mothers will include embedded reporters to broadcast the purpose of the caravan: to shed light on the FDA’s violent and failing policies.  The group of freedom rider mothers has also informed the FDA of their intentions and have invited them to the party.  Whether or not they show, it will be very interesting. Food freedom heroes Joel Salatin, Kristin Canty, Max Kane, David Gumpert, Mark McAfee and many others dedicated to raw milk freedom and food freedom will join us the rally and peaceful demonstration at the FDA headquarters. The Raw Milk Freedom Riders have asked the FDA repeatedly for dialog.  The FDA has refused.  Their only response is holding family farmers at gunpoint and economically destroying small farms and buying clubs.  It is time to challenge them on the law that turns mothers into criminals for bringing raw milk home to their families if it involves crossing state lines. If you are interested in being one of the Raw Milk Freedom Riders, please contact Liz Reitzig [email protected] EVERYONE is welcome to join the rally and make a HUGE statement to the FDA on our support for food freedom!  Any questions, please email [email protected]
