Vicki Jones of Mountain View Organic Dairy in Gippsland Victoria was at the centre of an outrageous media witch-hunt in December of 2014 over the unproven linkage of her farm's milk products to illness and indeed the tragic passing of a young child.
In Vicki's brave speech she discusses not only these events but also those that led her family's operation chosing to convert to organic production, their dairy calf management and treatment at the hands of banks.
Immediately following her speech Vicki received a rousing standing ovation from the 450+ crowd at the #EatBuyGrow Event at the Collingwood Town Hall (19.2.2015), the only one of the evening where speakers such as Joel Salatin spoke.

It is within our belief that if a human is to eat another living being, it should have full awareness of how it came to be.
Whether it be their tomato or quail, it is important to take pride and conscience in where you source your food, and as much as possible, harvest it yourself.
