Vernon Hershberger – Threatened by “Authorities” for Dairy Farm – Standing on Principle, And He’s Not Alone

UPDATE May 8, 2013 9:30PM EST
Guy Reynolds, the man wearing a black robe in Vernon Hershberger’s legalland venture, said yesterday at a pretrial hearing that the words “raw milk” can’t be uttered during the trial. Yes, this trial is about raw milk, but the combination of those two words is said to be prohibited. If Reynolds really cares about justice why would he demand others not mutter those words? At its core, this situation isn’t about raw milk, but about self-ownership.

Self-proclaimed “authorities” levied threats against Vernon Hershberger, who, on May 20th is slated to venture through legalland in Sauk County Wisconsin.

Hershberger’s alleged offense? He, his wife, their eight sons and 200 others in their private club, consume the milk and other related products from the cows they raise.

Fortunately Hershberger is standing on principle and many good folks are supporting his efforts. Already a few hundred have indicated their intention to be present.
