Raw Milk Regulations

Vermont's tiered raw milk policy allows producers selling 50 quarts or less per week to sell, barter, or give away milk on the farm where it is produced, and may also allow customers to fill their own containers.

Producers selling up to 160 quarts per week may also sell, barter, or give away milk on the farm where it is produced but may also deliver milk if it is pre-sold and if they follow the additional requirements for Tier 2 producers. A farmer selling less than 50 quarts may also deliver pre-sold milk given they meet the Tier 2 requirements.

Raw milk sales are prohibited at farmers markets, but advertising is not restricted. Producers of more than 12.5 gallons/day must meet bacteriological standards (Bacterial counts must be below 15K/mL and coliform counts below 10/mL). All raw milk must be clearly labeled as raw and carry the required warning label.

Relevant Law:
6 V.S.A. § 2775-78
