This seminar is for you if...

  • You are concerned about preserving your food choices;
  • You are concerned about food safety and security;
  • You are concerned about the issues with the (Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture) PDA's Raw Milk Permit;
  • You want to know what a permit really costs!
  • You are a raw milk permitted farmer and want to give up your permit but not sure how to go about it;
  • You have concerns about farms that do not participate in the PDA's  raw milk permit program or
  • You question how a raw milk permit makes raw milk safe.

Come and hear answers to these and other questions and concerns about Direct Farmer-to-Consumer Sales,  Raw Milk and PDA's Raw Milk Permit and how it affects you.

Sally Fallon-Morell
President, Weston A. Price Foundation

Find out why raw milk is the best food for growing children and for the whole family; how it helps the body fight disease; and why it has its own built-in safety mechanism.  The economic and environmental benefits of small scale raw milk production and tricks used by anti-raw milk forces will also be discussed.
