Making History Monday: July 1, 2013

Dan Brown, owner of Gravelwood Farm in Blue Hill, speaks to a crowd of more than 150 people gathered Friday, Nov. 18, 2011, in front of the Blue Hill Town Hall. The Maine Department of Agriculture has filed a suit against Brown, alleging that he is illegally selling unpasteurized milk without a license. Brown, meanwhile, insists he is doing nothing wrong and that a local food ordinance adopted by Blue Hill residents protects the rights of farmers to sell directly to consumers without a license.
