Raw Milk Regulations
The state’s Grade A Pasteurized Milk and Fluid Milk Products Regulations prohibit the sale of raw milk. The regulatory definition of sale does not include cowshare programs. The Board of Health, the rule making body for the Department of Public Health and Environment, voted against a proposed regulation that would have extended the definition of sale to “the sale of undivided shares or interests in a cow or dairy herd.”

Non-homogenized, pasteurized cows’ milk and pasteurized sheep’s milk. The cows’ milk in our farm store comes from the on-site dairy. We have viewing windows so you can see the cows get milked, watch the milk go into bottles, and observe our cheese maker at work. The sheep’s milk comes from a dairy in Nebraska and is pasteurized and bottled according to customer demand. Please call ahead to place an order and we will happily reserve some milk for your needs and cheese making experiments.
