Assessing Raw Milk

Need helping in learning to assess raw milk quality and safety?
Here are some resources we have compiled to help you do that. While this guide is oriented to NYS regulations, people in many other states will find it useful and relevant.

For those who are buying raw milk, all milk is NOT Created equal. For the best and safest milk, be sure it comes from cows that are:

2. Pastured
3. Grass-fed

Unfortunately by making raw milk illegal in some states, those states have no oversight over the raw milk. This opens the door for unscrupulous and low quality producers.
