“….Here is the quote he [Francis Thicke] sent me and four others in a personal note:

“Iowa has one of the most restrictive laws against raw milk in the nation.  No raw milk sales are allowed, even on the farm.   If I am elected, I intend to work with the legislature to try to get a bill passed to allow raw milk sales to consumers who come to a farm to buy the milk. If we could get that passed, it would be a big step forward.” Francis Thicke, Candidate for Iowa Secretary of Agriculture.

Raw milk and family farm food freedom (4-F) activists in Iowa, surrounding states and all over America should help get the word out and donate something if you can. (For $20, you get Thicke’s book!) Whether you post this on Facebook, Twitter or another networks—or donate—you will have some ownership in this exciting race and enjoy it even more sitting back to watch it through Election Day!

Unfortunately, too many real foodies and raw milk drinkers will say this is Iowa—it has nothing to do with me. They are too busy trading recipes or discussing ways to eat to reduce climate change. One poster responded to this announcement with “where can I get coddled milk for my pancakes?”…”
