Please Help Estrella Family Creamery

Raw milk creameries and the FDA don’t get along. It’s a pity. And it seems the creameries get the raw end of that deal.

The Estrella Family Creamery is a local, Washington raw milk creamery. Check out this blog post I just found by Debs from seattlelocalfood.com about the FDA’s seizure of the Estrella Family Creamery’s cheeses:

Here’s a picture of the Estrella family, from their website:

Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world where eating real, whole foods wasn’t such a difficult thing for our society as a whole to accept and understand? Why do local creameries get treated with such scorn and mistrust by the FDA? Good food is good for people to eat, tricky for people to find, and difficult for people to make. The last thing we need is a legal system that makes it harder to grow this small sector of our economy, especially for small family farms who don’t employ a team of corporate lawyers to defend themselves.

    Thank you for sharing this so we can help. I have contacted Norm Dicks and will send him an email every day. With the election coming up on Tuesday, November 2nd, this is a good time to get his attention.
