Alvin Schlangen is a peaceful farmer and volunteer manager of Freedom Farms Coop (FFC). This venture serves to connect people with the food sources that meet their high standards for health by providing private access under lawful ownership of farm animals - for dairy food access. This is sustainable farming in reality - where the value of food supports the cost incurred...without government subsidies or harm to the environment. The balance of food options are purchased by the club, for the members.

Over the past two years, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has illegally raided Alvin’s van, warehouse, and farm. The state has now brought multiple charges against Alvin related to food distribution; he faces misdemeanor counts in 3 counties as well as administrative charges. His upcoming trial is in Hennepin County and is history in the making because it is the first time that this type of case will be heard before a jury. If convicted, Alvin faces up to a year in jail and hefty fines... just for helping to connect consumers to the producers and foods of their choice.

Jury Trial for Local Farmer

Minneapolis, MN --This week in a Minneapolis courtroom, Alvin Schlangen, a farmer from Freeport, MN, hears from a jury if he will serve jail time for connecting people with nutrient-dense foods. Alvin and other volunteers are part of a private food club that holds a lease on farm animals for food provisions. The arrangement serves to make a legal connection between farm food and city inhabitants.

The case the State is building against Schlangen dates back to June of 2010, when the Schlangen farm was searched following the raid and subsequent closure of the Traditional Foods Warehouse. In 2011, the MDA inspected Schlangen's farm vehicle without a warrant where the MDA then illegally seized food owned by the private food club. The food was valued at thousands of dollars.

The persecution of Alvin Schlangen is not an isolated case in the state of Minnesota. In May 2012, the MDA threatened several women whose homes serve as drop sites for food from another local farm. To peacefully protest the attack on local farmers including Alvin Schlangen, these women, along with their families and friends, rallied outside the government center in Minneapolis, citing an overreach of government in regard to their food supply.

At 9:00 am on Monday, September 17th at the Hennepin County Courthouse, jury selection will begin. The trial is set to last for at least three days. Alvin faces four misdemeanor charges including the sale of raw milk and mislabeling of other foods. Schlangen maintains he is merely a volunteer in a private food club whose purpose is to bring farm-direct food to its members. Alvin's food club family, real food activists, and the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund stand in support Alvin Schlangen.

Post at The Complete Patient under:
"The MN Ag Mercenaries Count More FDA Cash; Illusion of Food Choice":

The nexxus between a State and this federal agency certainly needs full exposure including a show of substantial documentation. Re: "the Minnesota Department of Agriculture came into court fresh from a big grant from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration--part of its reward for going after farmers like Schlangen so aggressively." What is the documentation for this particular "reward" factor? I'd like to broadcast that!:
