I received a phone call today from a fellow dairy farmer near Lincoln. She told me about a Bill that was just introduced by Senator Rand Paul of KY. He proposes an amendment that would disarm the FDA and end the persecution of raw dairy farmers across the country. It also seeks to stop the FDA's rules about what vitamin and supplements and how they are currently disallowed from stating or advertising the health benefits of the herbs, vitamins, or remedy. Lastly it puts additional language in the Federal Food, Drugs, and Cosmetics Act that will help protect farmers and supplement manufacturers from federal criminal prosecution by the FDA.
If this bill passes it can help end the tyranny of the FDA! It could be voted on as early as today so please don't delay!
Please contact both your US Senators TODAY and urge them to vote “YES” to Senator Paul’s amendment to S. 3187.
Also, ask your Senators to vote “NO” on Senator Durbin’s amendment to S. 3187 which would greatly restrict access to dietary supplements and was submitted to water down Senator Paul’s amendment.
Please email or call (both is best) today !

we are thrilled to introduce our new intern Becca! Shown here enjoying lunch with us on her first day. She not only has a sweet and bubbly personality but she is not afraid of hard work! :-) She has already helped the kids get our garden planted! She is a welcome addition here and we look forward to getting to know her better. Be sure to say hello if you see her here at the farm or with us at market!!
Andy is starting to use his Facebook account to share little stories.... I thought I might share them here. If this keeps up we might have to change this blog to include us both. :-) Here is a little bit from Andy:
