Announcement: December 21, 2009 - Raw Milk Rally before Court Trial in Viroqua, WI
Max Kane, a big promoter of raw milk and founder of the private food buyers club Belle's Lunchbox, is under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). DATCP is seeking to obtain from Max business records for Belle's Lunchbox including a membership list of those who belong to the buyers club. A court hearing has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Monday, December 21 at the Viroqua, Wisconsin Court House over DATCP's request for these records as well as its request to obtain testimony from Max about the operations of Belle's Lunchbox. Max has refused to turn over any information to DATCP, claiming that it does not have jurisdiction over Belle's and that the agency is violating his constitutional rights.
