Organic Pastures’  Raw Milk in a Soup
Organic Pastures Dairy, South of Fresno, is going through a rough patch, following a recall and ban on their raw milk products. The ban was enforced after three children from South California took ill due to alleged E.Coli contamination.

The dairy owner refuting the State's charge said "There's a lot of confusion. The actual notice they gave us is full of errors and it's an over-reaction."

The State Department of Food and Agriculture while confirming that E. coli was not present in the milk, refers to a press release pointing at significant proof that the raw milk from Organic Pastures Dairy had caused the sickness in the children.

The dairy owner has requested for a hearing to challenge the findings.

My family and I have been buying and drinking raw milk from Organic Pastures for years and we have never had any problems - in fact, it digests better and makes us feel better. Organic Pastures tests their milk every time they milk the cows and always has very very low bacteria counts (he posts them online). Did you know your body needs bacteria to be healthy? There are literally billions of GOOD bacteria in your body that keep you healthy. If you kill the good ones with the bad (pasteurization) you are "throwing out the baby with the bath water". Raw milk is more natural and healthy - you don't see mothers pasteurizing their breast milk before they give it to their babies! The cows have to be kept healthy, happy and clean to give healthy raw milk that doesn't need to be pasteurized because it wasn't contaminated in the first place. Organic Pastures is a very clean operation with a milk trailer that goes out to the field to milk the cows.

I bless the day I heard Mark McAfee speak about Raw Milk. I was fortunate also to get a sample. I immediately knew my body needed and wanted this product. Had I known about and experienced the benefits of Organic Raw Milk a lot earlier, I would be a lot wealthier today. Because, 30 years ago issues with low energy halted a brilliant career. It is to my absolute amazement that I feel better all these years later, just from consuming this product daily. I CAN"T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT IT!!!!

What do you think farmer's drink? Pasteurized DEAD milk? THey all prefer raw. All the farmers in my state (none of which are FACTORY farms, by the way) drink it as NATURE intended. For ACCURATE facts on raw milk go to -- plenty or research to show you that PROPERLY cared for, grass fed animals have the best quality milk. You are relying on the media which feeds disinformation - by the way, the tests for E-coli were negative, so the people that accused Organic pastures should be ashamed of THEMSELVES for persecuting him without PROOF.

The warning label is on it because that is the law. In the early part of the last century when most milk was sold raw, there were many problems with dairymen milking diseased and infected animals. There also wasn't a consistent level of cleanliness in the milking and packaging process. It is true that people were occasionally harmed by the product and pasteurization became the norm. In the last 50 years raw milk dairies in California are tested by three different labs for each batch of milk. Organic Pastures is one of the most tested milks in the world. There was no E. coli 0157:H7 found in any of the samples tested. In the last 50 years the CDF has been very hostile to any raw milk dairy and has succeeded in putting most of them out of business. The warning label is to discourage use by the public. If any pathogen is found the milk then it is not marketed. I would rather drink a healthful fully tested raw milk than a pasteurized homogenized milk that causes many health problems (documented).

Yes. Drinking raw (unpasteurized) milk, or eating products made from raw milk, like cream, cheese or yogurt, can be dangerous because raw milk is often contaminated with harmful bacteria. Contaminated raw milk and other raw dairy products can cause the following: Diarrhea and stomach pain, (which may be severe), from infections with bacteria such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, and E. coli O157:H7 Severe kidney damage from infection with E. coli O157:H7 (called hemolytic uremic syndrome, or HUS) Miscarriage/stillbirth, or severe illness or death in the newborn when a pregnant woman infected with Listeria bacteria Recurrent fevers and joint or bone damage caused by infection with Brucella bacteria (brucellosis) In other parts of the world, raw milk can also be contaminated with the bacteria that cause tuberculosis and diphtheria. People with weakened immune systems, such as the elderly, young children, and those with certain underlying medical conditions, are most at risk for severe infections from contaminated raw milk and milk products.

Children should not consume RAW MILK. This is why there is a warning right on the container of Organic Pastures Raw Milk products.

Please help Organic Pastures get their products back on the shelves by telling the truth. their milk is 100% safe, and very healthy. No ecoli has been found in the milk. Call Chelsea Highholt for the real story. 760-275-0399. She fed her whole family the same milk the sick child consumed, and no one else became ill. Please do the right thing, and help to clear Organic Pastures name. Call me at 978-369-5042 if you would like information as to why raw milk is healthy and needed! Thank you, Kristin Canty Weston Price Organization
