The Debate Over Raw Milk Continues at Harvard Law School

This month, Harvard Law School hosted a debate on an issue near and dear to our hearts: raw milk.

David Gumpert, author of The Raw Milk Revolution was on the side of the debate endorsing raw milk, along with Sally Fallon Morrell of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

Facing off against them and emphasizing the dangers of unpasteurized milk were Fred Pritzker of PritzkerOlsen law firm and Dr. Heidi Kassenborg, Director of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

It’s no secret that we here at Chelsea Green come down on the side of the small farmer and the choosy consumer (in other words, “Three cheers for David, Sally, and raw milk producers everywhere!”). But what do you think?

Watch the video and decide for yourself! Then pop on over to our Facebook conversation about the issue and chip in your two cents.
