#1771 Raw Milk

   

                   

When we are in PA we are able to buy raw milk, or fresh unprocessed whole cow's milk.   It tastes delicious- the way milk, I think, is supposed to taste.  It is unfortunate that raw milk is not legal to buy retail in more states.  (In NY state it is only legal to buy raw milk at a farm- a bit difficult to access if you live in NYC).     In PA we buy it at the farmer's market from a local Amish farmer.  We have actually been to this farmer's farm and seen what a wonderful operation he has.  

Want to buy raw milk in your state?  First find out what the legality is in your state.  http://farmtoconsumer.org/raw_milk_map.htm  The map on this link is not as current as I'd like so do verify the information.  If you subscribe to the New Yorker you can read a good piece about raw milk http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/04/30/120430fa_fact_goodyear.
There are lots of advocacy groups working to change the perception and laws about raw milk.  
I am part of a raw milk Facebook page that provides information on what is happening with this issue.  You can like them on Facebook if you are interested http://www.facebook.com/FindRawMilk
