Morningland Cheese destruction stayed – for now

By NICFA

When Morningland Dairy LLC, the Missouri farmstead raw cheese plant shut down by the Missouri Milk Board since August 26, 2010, lost in court in late February, the judge ordered the destruction of Morningland’s $250,000 cheese inventory – the family’s livelihood.  Morningland’s attorney immediately requested a stay of the destruction. Following is the press release by Doreen Hannes, NICFA Research Director.

Stay of Execution on Cheese Granted, Morningland Moves to Appeal

9 March, 2011  In a surprisingly fast decision, the Judge in the Morningland of the Ozarks LLC’s case has ruled in favor of a “stay of execution” on destruction of the cheese in the farmstead cheese company’s refrigerated cave.

Yesterday at 1:00 pm, there was a teleconference regarding Morningland counsel’s request for a stay on the state’s desire to destroy all of the cheese held under embargo since August 26th. The Judge had issued his Order for Judgment for destruction and had also issued a Permanent Injunction on Morningland LLC to stop them from making or selling cheese until an untenable set of criteria were met by the company. Counsel Gary Cox requested a stay on destruction and asked the judge to dismiss the counter claims brought by Morningland LLC in their case with the Missouri Milk Board.

Today, March 9th, 2011, the day the Milk Board wanted to begin destroying the cheese, Judge Dunlap issued a five point ruling in favor of the Stay and now the case to destroy the cheese moves on to appeal.

Morningland of the Ozarks LLC , has been in business for 30 years with no incidents of illness. Despite the history of companies like Morningland, the FDA issued a notice to consumers the same day the decision to grant a stay was being heard saying that raw dairy may “Pose a Health Threat”.

While Morningland of the Ozarks LLC has been put out of business by the seizure and halt of selling or producing cheese at the cheese plant, Morningland intends to move forward as a private health food association and hopes to make cheese again soon. Joseph and Denise Dixon, the prior principals of Morningland LLC said, “If we can just hold on until spring fully hits, when the grass comes in and the cows don’t need to be fed, we think we can weather this, and hopefully produce living, healthful food for our members again.”

    The FDA can go to hell. They ain’t out to protect any of us. They’re out to further their agenda, which is the one pushed by Big Agra and Big Pharma.

    Watch the Colbert Report on Rawesome in California. They raided a hippie raw milk place like it was a crack house. Then some suit with the FDA said in an interview that, and I quote, “Individuals are stupid.” The FDA’s motto is that you as an individual are not fit to make decisions for yourselves or your children.

  4. Here is some rap music “FDA – Precise Science” spelling out for the black people what is wrong with the medicines, doctors the FDA and how they are destroying our food, water and health. The rap goes on to encourage a return to natural cures from herbs and food. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLKgnzYnNMY
