OWEN SOUND, Ont. — An Ontario farmer who has been in a long legal battle over selling and producing raw milk says a co-op farm he’s involved with has been raided by federal inspectors.

Michael Schmidt says members of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency seized computers and boxes of items from the farm northeast of Durham on Thursday.

Schmidt, who recently won the right to appeal his conviction for producing, selling and distributing raw milk, says he may face new charges but he’s not worried.

Canadian Food Inspection Agency officials would only confirm that they executed search warrants Thursday as part of an investigation into the removal of 31 sheep from an eastern Ontario farm on April 2.

Those sheep had been quarantined over concerns they had a disease known as scrapie and their removal breached a federal quarantine.
