RAW Dairy Campaign: Do You Want To Help?
September 2, 2022
I hope this finds everyone well this wonderful, warm summer day! Summer is definitely in it's prime right now! :)
So for many years now, Dutch Meadows farm and our family have been involved in trying to update our raw milk laws so that more of you can exercise your basic human right to access the foods of your choice, especially raw dairy.
It is a slow process. We want you to be able to continue buying raw butter, adding raw cream, and any raw products you want along with your raw milk. Often, the process towards decriminalization is 2 steps forward, 1 step back. But we must keep going. Our raw dairy products are definitely at stake!
Your support means everything to us. We know that you are committed to greater access to raw products now and for future generations.
For several years now, we have been working towards a policy in Pennsylvania to expand sales options for raw dairy farms. We are excited to tell you that we are in the final push towards a positive change.
And yes, your voice definitely counted back in 2020 when we asked for letters of support to the state. We still have them and will definitely continue using them if needed. Thanks to those of you that responded! :)
We want to be clear that what we are working towards will greatly help our whole community of Pennsylvania raw dairy farmers. This is a PA policy specifically that we are working towards. However, we strongly believe that a chance in PA will be an inspiration to other states to act accordingly.
And this particular change will help our PA community of farmers sustain their on-farm businesses. We need this change and we need it now.
We need your help. We cannot do this without outside help. As such, we have contracted with a consultant who has worked on these issues for many years. We have the highest faith that these efforts will bear fruit in the very near future. But we do need help funding these extra expenses.
Please help us in two ways:
1. Donate to our raw milk legalization campaign here. Any amount helps enormously. You can choose $10, $50, or $100 dollar increments by adding them as products to your current or new order. If you are not placing a food order, you can still add to your cart and put it through like an order.
2. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers for the outcome we have been working towards for so long.
As always, we thank you for your continued support, your belief in us as your REAL farmers, and your desire to help our larger community of REAL sustainable like-minded farmers. Lets keep building the legacy for our next generations in a positive way! :)
From your farmer,
Dave at Dutch Meadows
P.S. We will share with you later on exactly how the funds get used to the dollar, nothing to hide! :) Please let us know if you have any questions by replying to this email or calling us at 717-442-9208
