Appeal filed for raw milk farmer

A Virginia farmer rights group has filed an appeal on behalf of a Wisconsin dairy farmer convicted of misdemeanor related to the sale of raw milk.

Vernon Hershberger was found guilty in May of one count of violating a holding order placed on products at his Loganville farm after a 2010 raid.

Hershberger was found not guilty of charges alleging he sold retail food, produced milk and operated a dairy plant without proper state licenses.

The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund filed the appeal Tuesday night.

During his trial, a redacted hold order was submitted to the jury for review. On its website, the farmer rights group says attorneys believe the jury would have cleared Hershberger of all charges had they seen the full hold order.

A judge fined Hershberger $1,000.
