A local area farmer who pleaded guilty to selling raw milk is accused of violating the terms of his parole. A Sibley County prosecutor has asked a judge to order the arrest of Michael Hartmann. A State Patrol trooper reportedly stopped the rural Gibbon farmer last week in Anoka County and discovered that he was transporting unpasteurized milk for sale. Under state law, raw milk can only be sold on the farm where it’s produced. Hartmann’s attorney says that he has a constitutional right to sell the milk. Three years ago state officials said Hartmann’s unpasteurized products sickened more than a dozen people. A hearing date has not been set yet on the request to jail Hartmann.
