That’s Michael’s son, Marcus Schmidt, in the picture below, celebrating the recent raw milk victory in Ontario.
Marcus is in Switzerland for the week, attending the annual international biodynamic conference, at the Goetheanum. That’s the building in the background of the picture.
Marcus is really the main farmer at Glencolton Farms these days, while his father Michael is the one who talks to reporters, goes around giving speeches and appears in court.
No doubt the news that Ontario residents will now be legally able to drink raw milk from their own cows will be pretty unsurprising for most of the farmers at the conference. In Europe, public availability of raw milk has been a non-issue for as long as anyone can remember.
