Is Healthy Family Farms of Santa Paula Legit?

23rd March 2011

I’m discovering that there is quite a bit of controversy around Healthy Family Farms of Santa Paula.   Not just about the raw milk issue that I totally support them on, but about allegations of fraud.  I’ve been singing their praises for over a year now, and I’ve even been to the farm for one of their open house tours.   The people there seem so earnest in what they do that I would have a hard time believing that they would just re-package commercial meat and eggs to meet the weekly demand.  However a site called has popped up and has some compelling photo evidence of fraud.  Having been to the farm I actually recognize the areas where those photos were taken and can verify they’re on the farm.  They also have a rap sheet on the owner that’s several pages long.  I can’t verify that the evidence is real though.  Does anyone have any more information about this?

I enjoy writing about technology, travel, wine and living in Ventura, CA.
