Feds invade farm for 5 a.m. inspection
Serve warrant on farmer up to milk cows


Federal agents invaded an Amish farm in Pennsylvania at 5 a.m. to inspect cow-milking facilities then followed up the next day with a written notice that the farmer was engaged in interstate sale of raw milk in violation of the Public Health Services Act.

Sounds like another case of federal agents overstepping their bounds.

They could have been a little nicer about it. Isn't Pasteurization bringing the milk up to 165 degrees? I guess people drank raw milk for centuries.

Don't say that too loud. The government knows what's best for you and will raid you. They have done it in a number of places.

Amish family just bought an old run down farm up the road--125 acres,fixable barn--they put up a new house 30X40/2 story in 3 days--he's got a nice team of Grays he's been pulling in firewood with--they are hard workers & should be left alone w/ this situation---just for the record,he likes The Amish Outlaws--he's about late 30's --3 sons I saw--even the smallest 6 or 7 was out there pitching in---we smoked a cig together & swapped farmin stories--real nice guy & real polite kids--they stood still & didn't interupt when we were talking--they just listened--reminded me of the old days

Pasteurization kills the taste of EVERYTHING..... Beer, Milk, etc....

We drank raw drink when I was a kid. Did't do us any harm. Probably helped keep the colds and flus in check during the winter months.
GAWD it was gooood.... Get the first couple gallons out of the "big" can, and it was mostly the cream. DAMN! I still taste it! :D :up:

Big business doesn't want the small farms competing with them. They will use regulations enforced by the government to do their dirty work. George Orwell had the date wrong, thats all. :mad:

Recently I was asked to drive to a farm that also builds buggies,and handles buggy parts besides farming.My amish neighbor was in a fix for the parts and it was a long trip for the horse that late in the day.I took his 19 year old son along because he knew where we were going which was off the beaten path.On the back road,we saw a bunch of amish school kids on their bicycles because school had just released them.They were gathered and were chatting at the stop sign when we got up there.I was asked to hold the car a bit. My rider started talking with them in Penna Dutch out the window.After a short time they smiled,waved and pedaled off. I said ,what was that all about since I do not understand Pa Dutch.He said that he told them they should not be wasting daylight with conversation and that they should be home helping their parents with the farm chores. This kid is 19 years old,and that is so typical of what I have seen of this wonderful tight knit group.What wonderful neighbors,you cannot know.And yes it is true,the kids never speak when elders are in conversation.
