A weekly series about our food and sustainable agriculture.

- The Raw Milk Debate: Thorny Issues of Food Safety, Food Rights, and Public Health (text post)
Husband and wife team, farmers Mike Guebert and Linda Bangs live on 10 acres of land, raising and tending to a variety of livestock. Currently, they have 2 Jersey cows, and 40 goats that provide raw milk; about 250 laying chicken hens for eggs, and 800 chickens for (meat) broilers; and 5 turkeys: 4 hens, and one happy tom. Oh yes, and not to forget, 2 heritage breed pigs, and just the day before we arrived this spring (2012), they picked up 14 wiener pigs.
This is a snapshot moment of life on their farm, and their story.
