In an attempt to help consumers find locally produced Real Milk, we have compiled the following list describing the potential availability and legal situation on a state-by-state and country-by-country basis. We cannot vouch for the accuracy of the following list. If you have corrections or additions, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org . See the "Where" section for a listing of dairies by state and country.
US Summary: As shown in the map from Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund at right (go to http://ftcldf.org/raw_milk_map.htm to see an interactive version and get an emailable PDF):
- Retail sales are legal in 10 states
- On-farm sales are legal in 15 states
- Herd shares are legal in 4 states
- There is no law on herd shares in 6 states
- Pet food sales are legal in 4 states (implying that human consumption is feasible)
Thus, it is possible to purchase raw milk or obtain it from your own animal/herd (herd shares) in 39 out of 50 states. Our goal: Raw milk available to consumers in all 50 states and throughout the world! Write to your government leaders and let your voice be heard.
