(NaturalNews) Raw milk 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 goons who trampled all over his private property 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.

Why support Vernon Hershberger?

We are living in dark times where our own government declares real food to be criminal. We are suffering under a criminal regime that respects no rights, no privacy, no liberty and no law.
