Tal- as you can see, this is a hot topic. As you have noticed, opinions around this often varies by region. In the UK, raw milk is legal and easy to obtain and many of us here believe that it is a great choice for cheese making.
No milk is or will ever be 100% "safe" and I might recommend reading up a bit more on the relevant issues and various pathogens so you can make the right choice for you since, as someone else said, there is no simple answer to "safe" or "not safe". I don't know how much you plan to produce (because if it is not much, this would be a bit cheeky) but one thing that might help is asking your farmer about his or her testing protocols. IMHO, understanding herd management is the right place to look if you are sourcing directly from the farm.
