US raw milk laws, state by state website
« on: October 13, 2012, 10:57:59 AM »
A discussion came up in another thread regarding buying raw direct from farms.   I wanted to post this here so others might find it easily in the future. 

Ohio regs do not allow retail sale of raw milk direct from the farm or otherwise, but other states like Oregon and Pennsylvania do under certain circumstances.  Ohio recently passed a bill to allow herd share, but it is in its infancy and details in the execution of those arrangements are just now being tried and tested. 

I found this website highlighting US raw milk retailing laws state by state:
Perhaps some will find it useful or interesting.  Funny, Rhode Island only allows the sale of raw goat milk with a physician's prescription.  I've always believed in the medicinal qualities of raw goat milk, but requiring a prescription for a high-nutrition food?  I got bit of a laugh anyway.
