The sale of raw milk is a big issue in many farmers' markets -- in some states you can only buy raw milk on the producer's property, in some states it is considered safe only for pet food, and in many states its sale is entirely illegal. Maine is one of the few states to legalize the sale of raw milk, and this piece from the blog vrai-lean-uh is a great look at the history and impact of raw milk both in her state and around the country.
What is raw milk? To quote her piece, Raw milk is, basically, the milk that comes out of the cow (formerly referred to as “milk”). When you put it that way, it's an important reminder that even the milk we buy at the grocery store has gone through processing -- pasteurization and often homogenization -- and that it's our responsibility as consumers to inform ourselves to make our own food decisions.
