Vernon Hershberger is on the front lines of the battle for your Constitutional Rights. The Ninth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution preserves our food rights and farming freedom. Vernon Hershberger is a "peaceful warrior" for these sacred rights that are being aggressively and repeatedly violated by a criminal government. Hershberger owns and operates a privately held dairy farm, Grazin' Acres, in Loganville, Wisconsin. Over 200 investors in his farm enable Hershberger to operate a non-retail farm store for member investors only.
Wisconsin farmer Vernon Hershberger has been unjustly maligned by a tyrannical system of bad government. His family and farm were subjected to an armed raid by government agents, who trampled all over his private property, destroying some 300+ gallons of milk in his bulk tank, seizing and refusing to return his computer, and accused him of committing "dairy crimes" by distributing raw milk to a small group of people who were members of a private buying club.
Hershberger, who has an Amish background, was then hauled into court where the state attempted to prosecute him and send him to jail for the "crime" of producing real food in America. Thankfully, he was recently found innocent on most of the charges, but then his farm was mysteriously set on fire in the middle of the night, destroying over $100,000 worth of equipment and buildings, only a few weeks before the trial.
Several of the jurors were so moved by the case that they now want to join Hershberger’s buying club to be able to access raw milk for their families, noting that this is an issue of food freedom. Not only does it seem a precious waste of state resources to target a man supplying wholesome food to informed and willing buyers, several of the jurors stated they felt the trial, and specifically the holding order charge, was unjust.
The Hershberger family is holding a fundraiser auction on August 17th to help raise funds to replace the items lost during the "mysterious" fire. People and organizations from all across the world of food freedom are donating items to the auction in support of Vernon Hershberger.
Patriots that have donated many items to this auction include Sheriff Richard Mack, Constitutional Scholar Michael Badnarik, Mike Adams of NaturalNews, American Free Press, and Alex Jones. To see these unique items visit http://www.vernonhershberger.com/auction-items.html
Although in today's world with lots of insurance all over the place a fire is not normally such a huge setback. The Hershbergers, (coming from an Amish background that does not beleive in insurance) got caught with almost no insurance when the fire hit them. Although they have gotten more coverage now since the fire, they still have to make up the huge deficit that was caused by the fire. $175,000 and insurance paid only $21,000. They lost 1,600 chickens and all of their farm machinery right down to the wheel barrow. Also a brand new tractor which they had gotten 3 days before and also a good used skidsteer which had cost $18,000 was delivered just two days before the fire.
The Amish and many other plain churches now refuse to help out financially due to the fact that the Hershbergers are no longer a part of them. (He is a non-denominational Christian). Yet Vernon is a Patriot, and now it is time for you my fellow Patriots in standing with this Patriot farmer who has taken a stand for your Constitutional Rights.
Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Herschberger has been under legal assault by a Big Food backed WI government for 3 yrs. Despite winning on 3 of 4 counts, he is still trying to clear his name. Attorney Elizabeth Gamsky Rich of the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund is defending him.
