Dickie was a great guy. he Helped Carl (Furno) and I went we were married. Carl would go over and help Dickie deliver the Calves. sometimes Carl would bring one home for me to raise. We ended up with seven cows from Dickies herd. He would give me the best advise for my horses and Cows how to raise healthy animals.  For the 12 years I had horses and Cows I never had a farm call. they never got sick. He was a really good man, he will be missed among the comunity. Prayers to his family...

I remember taking my own container into the barn and dispensing raw milk.  Always excellent and a beautiful routine to now look back on.  My older two kids, particularly, remember knowing (no matter which way the wind blew) when Dicky was plowing his fields.  We lived only a few minutes away.  Funny how times change.  

Sedgwick, Maine has done what no other town in the United States has done. The town unanimously passed an ordinance giving its citizens the right “to produce, process, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing.” This includes raw milk, locally slaughtered meats, and just about anything else you can imagine. It’s also a decided bucking of state and federal laws.

Sorry to hear of Dicky's passing.  He was such a fine person.
