Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund Files Appeal in Wisconsin Raw Milk Case

Raw Milk

Story at-a-glance -

  • Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger was charged with four criminal misdemeanors for supplying a private buying club with raw milk and other fresh produce
  • He was acquitted of three of the four charges and the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) is appealing the jury verdict of the fourth charge on claims that key information was withheld that would have exonerated him
