Vernon Hershberger ran a farm which exchanged raw milk for work on the farm, donations, and sometimes if people were hungry, for nothing at all. The government didn’t take kindly to the operation and so sought to make an example of Mr. Hershberger, at significant cost to the taxpayer.

Overall a victory for the little guys and the whole foods movement. It happens occasionally.
