Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger only sells his farm’s milk and other produce to a private food club. Yet the state’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has charged Hershberger with four criminal misdemeanors that could land him in prison for three years with fines of over $10,000. He is due in court on March 2nd.
