It should come as no surprise that we are in the midst of a food revolution.  The biggest move is going local.  What does that mean?  For one it means knowing your farmer, your farmer who has fresh raw milk , farm fresh eggs  and other goodies.  This idea is catching on in Florida and Orlando in particular.  Local buying clubs are growing and people are demanding wholesome quality food and florida farmers are working to meet the demands.  Farmer’s markets are growing and the  Orlando area has about 10 very popular markets.  It’s getting easier to find goat milk, raw cheese, farm fresh yogurt and much more.

Food, Inc. will be shown tonight at 9pm on Orlando’s WMFE the local PBS TV station.  Look for Joel Salatin as he is the mentor of Full Circle Farm owner Dennis Stoltzfoos.  I’ve had the honor of meeting with him several years ago when he was the featured speaker at our annual Fall Farm day.  It makes mention of grass-fed  beef, pastured chickens, farm fresh eggs.  This film really highlights real food like raw milk and the local food movement.  Now Central Florida and Orlando in particular gets to view what local food is all about.

After a long standing legal battle with the Canadian government Michael Schmidt was acquitted in a Newmarket court this past January. He was cleared  of 19 charges of distributing raw milk and raw milk products.

Justice of the Peace Paul Kowarsky essentially agreed that  no law was broken because  he was distributing to cow-share owners of  and not the public at large.

Mr. Schmidt, a 54-year-old Durham region dairy farmer, and his supporters maintain that  grass-fed raw milk is healthier before it is pasteurized,  yet Canadian health officials deem it unsafe for public consumption.
