Raw milk is currently outlawed nationwide in Canada.
It is illegal for farmers to run private-buying clubs in Canada, a go-to workaround for avoiding raw milk prohibition in many states of the USA. However, up to 100 herdshares are operating under the radar in British Columbia at the time of this podcast.
Canadian raw milk farmers and their customers are forced to operate in the shadows. Still, the RCMP and their criminal organs can’t seem to snuff them all out. They deserve to be punished for even trying, but without further adieu…
Here’s a recent episode of the Ethical Agriculture Podcast featuring Eva Kralits, co-founder of the Canadian Artisan Dairy Alliance, dated February 18th, 2022.
Episode description, from the Ethical Agriculture Podcast:
Today we speak to Eva Kralits, one of the founders of the Canadian Artisan Dairy Alliance. CADA is a collective of consumers who want to see Canada’s outdated ban on raw milk lifted so that conscious consumers can have safe, healthy access to raw milk through appropriate regulation and inspection.
Today, Canada is the only G7 nation where raw milk cannot be sold legally despite consumer demand.
We discuss how legalizing the sale of unadultered milk would support family farms, increase regional food security, and provide consumers the security of access to a safe product.
Until such a time, unadultered milk is sentenced to be relegated to black market deals in box store parking lots under hushed tones.
CADA wants to support small family run artisan dairys that nurture their land and livestock to produce top-quality milk.
If you support consumer choice and food sovereignty, this episode will make you smile, shake your head, and likely get darn angry.
Another organization working for raw milk freedom is the British Columbia Herdshare Association, visit their website at bcherdshare.org. Follow them on facebook @BCHerdshare, and on twitter @BCHerdshare
