“Iowa is the Corn State, and its about time that farmers quit growing Corn and start raising Cain.”–Augie
- Francis, Susan and Rodney– Sustainable Dairy Farmers, Raw Milk Lovers and with your help can be Iowa’s Secretary of Agriculture
Your chance to give David a few more stones to hurl at the Goliath he is up against in this neck-to-neck battle– this is the one to watch!
UPDATE: I was informed last night that an anonymous donor to the Francis Thicke campaign from Fairfield, Iowa will MATCH every new dollar donated UP TO $25,000 to pay for the beautiful billboards to be erected on Iowa highways and the boss TV commercials.
Take a look at Francis Thicke’s bio and the one-minute video below. Then you too will go to the DONATE page and put your money where your mouth is. For 20 bucks you will receive his new book: ‘A New Vision for Iowa Food and Agriculture: Sustainable Agriculture for the 21st Century’. (which I am sure applies to all states as well). Best of all, just go to the fabulous http://www.thickeforagriculture.com and see all the commercials like this one:
Here is the quote he 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?”
I just wonder why the Thicke race is not being reported and mentioned in the food and farm blogs I watch.– Augie
