The province’s highest court has come down hard on an Ontario farmer who supports the right to sell and drink unpasteurized milk.

A 2011 conviction has been upheld against Michael Schmidt – that saw him fined $9,150.

The court says Schmidt’s “cow-share” scheme – in which consumers supposedly bought an ownership interest in a dairy cow – was little more than a way to circumvent public-health rules.

Schmidt has been battling for 20 years to make unpasteurized milk available to non-farmers.

Ontario has always insisted that unprocessed milk poses a significant risk to public health.

The Appeal Court said it saw no solid evidence to refute that finding.
