Raw milk sales are legal but, in practice, there are no raw milk sales in the state.
In order for a farmer to obtain a permit from the state dairy commission to produce and distribute raw milk, the county milk commission must first certify the farm for the production of raw milk or a raw milk product.
Under state statute, the board of county commissioners must establish the county milk commission. The county must issue regulations governing the production and distribution of raw milk and raw milk products. These regulations are not valid unless the State Board of Health and the State Dairy Commission first approve them.
There has never been a county milk commission in existence at any time, so to this point, there has been a de facto prohibition of raw milk sales.
