Some of you may be interested in this bill, which would allow the sale of raw milk direct to the consumer from the farmer. Though NLDM takes no actual stance on the issue of raw milk, we do encourage everyone do their own research. However, this bill would certainly allow consumers more choices in the marketplace, and would allow small dairy farmers to actually sell their milk to consumers. (Many small dairy concerns can only sell cheese, because pasteurization is too onerous and/or expensive.)
As with any proposed legislation, if this is a topic that interests you, please contact your local elected representatives. I’ve found our state representatives to be incredibly responsive to constituent input – even if they disagree on the topic at hand.
