“CHILLIWACK (NEWS1130) – There’s no sense crying over spilled milk, but putting up a fight over raw milk is another story. A feud has soured relations between a cow-milking operation in Chilliwack and the Fraser Health Authority.
People from Home on the Range Farm are giving away free milk outside Fraser Health’s Chilliwack office and dozens of people have showed up. Problem is….it’s unpasteurized milk. Fraser Health says that’s a no-no because raw milk isn’t fit for human consumption.

That fight is now before the courts. Alice Jongerdon used to head up the farm and says the consumer should be able to choose what is healthy and what isn’t.

“Whether it’s milk or washer fluid, it doesn’t matter. We have a choice to determine what is healthy or good for us,” she says.

Jongerdon stepped down so a man known as the “Raw Dairy Crusader” could take over the farm. The crusader’s real name is Michael Schmidt who won a similar legal battle in Ontario.”
