Missisippi Dairy Farm Worker Pleas Guilty to Poisoning Milk Supply

Missisippi Dairy Farm Worker Pleas Guilty to Poisoning Milk Supply

Alfred Thornhill, a former dairy farm employee, admitted that he tampered with the milk in order to punish the farm owner

Thornhill faces up to three years in a federal prison for tampering with a consumer product.

A former dairy worker from Mississippi has pled guilty to tampering with the milk supply at the farm where he worked, The Clarion Ledger reports.

In 2014, Alfred Thornhill poured chlorine, acid, and bleach into a stainless steel container of milk immediately after it was collected from dairy cows.

The toxic tampering was discovered by the farm’s owner before the shipment was scheduled for delivery to New Orleans, and confirmed by a laboratory at Mississippi State University. Thankfully, it appears that none of the milk was consumed before the discovery was made.

Appearing in court before U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III earlier this week, 41-year-old Thornhill admitted to tampering with a consumer product and accepted a plea deal that includes up to three years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

Thornhill eventually admitted that he poisoned the milk because he was upset with the farm’s owner and wanted to hurt him financially. Thornhill’s sentencing is scheduled for January.


Raw Milk Testimonials

February 2015–Testimonials a cow share owner shared with us, from his members.

We love knowing where our family’s milk comes from. We love knowing the farm, the farmer and the cows. We have a number of options to choose from for milk shares in our community, but Copper Hill Farms is the best in our opinion. Bill Munzing, our local cow herder :), takes his role very seriously. His milking barn and pick-up area are meticulously clean we have never had a moments worry about receiving a product that was anything less than whole, fresh, perfect milk–direct from the cow. In addition, as an educated supporter of the Weston A Price Foundation and its nutrition objectives, Bill also fully
understands and lives the values of his work. We truly appreciate Bill for his willingness in this day and age to provide such a great source of real milk. There are not many people willing or able to be tied down to the farm for two rounds of milking each day. It is a sacrifice in many ways. We use the milk received from Copper Hill Farms for cooking/baking, general drinking purposes, and making butter and cheese when quantities permit. The whey generated in the cheese making process doesn’t go to waste either. By far, the majority of the dairy my family consumes comes from our Copper Hill
milk. Thank you for this wonderful resource.–KS: Check, VA

When I had an acute episode of IBS, after wasting a considerable amount of time with clueless medical doctors, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Raw milk has been an important part of my healing, by introducing healthy bacteria into my gut. It has been very successful for me. I’m glad to have Bill Munzig as a provider of raw milk. I can tell that for Bill, farming is not just a way to earn a living, but rather a reflection of a deeply held belief in the importance of healthy food and a healthy lifestyle.–BM: Floyd, VA

First, thanks for all you do to take care of the cows that provide milk for our family. I have a double testimonial from the Spence clan. First, I was diagnosed as “pre-diabetic” last January due to high scores on my A1C levels. I modified my diet by cutting out carbs and sugar, but I also switched from corporate-cow milk to Copper Hill-cow milk, since I’ve read that pasteurization turns milk’s lactose into beta-lactose, which is more readily absorbed into my body (which is the opposite of what I want). One year later and 40 pounds lesser, my A1C levels are back down to “normal.” I attribute a least part of that blood sugar reduction to your milk. Yum.

My second testimonial is for our youngest son, Henry, who has diabetes insipidus, meaning that his pituitary gland does not produce the hormone vasopressin, which regulates his body’s waterworks. Symptoms of his condition are constant thirst and excessive urination. A year and a half ago, before we were able to identify his condition, he lost almost 20% of his body weight due to the fact that his constant thirst blocked out his sense of hunger, wrecking havoc on his appetite. Fortunately, his condition is easily regulated by medication, and his love of your milk has helped him gain back his lost weight (and more) and has visibly improved his overall physical condition.–TS: Check, VA

For Foodies, Too!

January 5, 2014–The health benefits of raw milk have been well documented. Our own doctor praises my family for producing our own food from our garden and milking the cow that gives her raw white gold to us on a daily basis. My four healthy and beautiful children only got ear infections when I bought pasteurized milk from the store when my cow was dry (it’s been three sad months)! But that is not what I want to write about. I have to mention the superior TASTE that raw, non-homogenized milk has that even my young children have noticed. My five-year-old son turned his nose up at the store-bought (Organic) milk for the first month of buying it, claiming it was “weird tasting.” I had to add chocolate to my three-year-old son’s store bought milk for him to drink it! Now I’m no expert or foodie, but my children are right. There is no comparison. Raw milk is a perfect example of truly good food. –Merry (mother of four)

February 2015–Testimonials a cow share owner shared with us, from his members.

We love knowing where our family’s milk comes from. We love knowing the farm, the farmer and the cows. We have a number of options to choose from for milk shares in our community, but Copper Hill Farms is the best in our opinion. Bill Munzing, our local cow herder :), takes his role very seriously. His milking barn and pick-up area are meticulously clean we have never had a moments worry about receiving a product that was anything less than whole, fresh, perfect milk–direct from the cow. In addition, as an educated supporter of the Weston A Price Foundation and its nutrition objectives, Bill also fully
understands and lives the values of his work. We truly appreciate Bill for his willingness in this day and age to provide such a great source of real milk. There are not many people willing or able to be tied down to the farm for two rounds of milking each day. It is a sacrifice in many ways. We use the milk received from Copper Hill Farms for cooking/baking, general drinking purposes, and making butter and cheese when quantities permit. The whey generated in the cheese making process doesn’t go to waste either. By far, the majority of the dairy my family consumes comes from our Copper Hill
milk. Thank you for this wonderful resource.–KS: Check, VA

When I had an acute episode of IBS, after wasting a considerable amount of time with clueless medical doctors, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Raw milk has been an important part of my healing, by introducing healthy bacteria into my gut. It has been very successful for me. I’m glad to have Bill Munzig as a provider of raw milk. I can tell that for Bill, farming is not just a way to earn a living, but rather a reflection of a deeply held belief in the importance of healthy food and a healthy lifestyle.–BM: Floyd, VA

First, thanks for all you do to take care of the cows that provide milk for our family. I have a double testimonial from the Spence clan. First, I was diagnosed as “pre-diabetic” last January due to high scores on my A1C levels. I modified my diet by cutting out carbs and sugar, but I also switched from corporate-cow milk to Copper Hill-cow milk, since I’ve read that pasteurization turns milk’s lactose into beta-lactose, which is more readily absorbed into my body (which is the opposite of what I want). One year later and 40 pounds lesser, my A1C levels are back down to “normal.” I attribute a least part of that blood sugar reduction to your milk. Yum.

My second testimonial is for our youngest son, Henry, who has diabetes insipidus, meaning that his pituitary gland does not produce the hormone vasopressin, which regulates his body’s waterworks. Symptoms of his condition are constant thirst and excessive urination. A year and a half ago, before we were able to identify his condition, he lost almost 20% of his body weight due to the fact that his constant thirst blocked out his sense of hunger, wrecking havoc on his appetite. Fortunately, his condition is easily regulated by medication, and his love of your milk has helped him gain back his lost weight (and more) and has visibly improved his overall physical condition.–TS: Check, VA

For Foodies, Too!

January 5, 2014–The health benefits of raw milk have been well documented. Our own doctor praises my family for producing our own food from our garden and milking the cow that gives her raw white gold to us on a daily basis. My four healthy and beautiful children only got ear infections when I bought pasteurized milk from the store when my cow was dry (it’s been three sad months)! But that is not what I want to write about. I have to mention the superior TASTE that raw, non-homogenized milk has that even my young children have noticed. My five-year-old son turned his nose up at the store-bought (Organic) milk for the first month of buying it, claiming it was “weird tasting.” I had to add chocolate to my three-year-old son’s store bought milk for him to drink it! Now I’m no expert or foodie, but my children are right. There is no comparison. Raw milk is a perfect example of truly good food. –Merry (mother of four)
