Fresh Milk in Vermont

The House of Representatives will vote this week on H.616, a bill I co-sponsored that would allow unpateurized milk to flow more freely in Vermont.
If passed, this law will milk the trend toward buying local, foster more neighborly contact, help Vermont's small farms, and preserve a great way of life here in Vermont.
Plus, it will make cows happier (well, at least they'll be selling their milk for more).

Thank you to Jason for cosponsoring H.616, and thank you to the House Agriculture Committee for passing the bill. As passed by the committee, the bill will double the amount of raw milk that farmers can sell each day - from 25 quarts/day to 50 quarts/day. In addition, the committee learned that the Agency of Agriculture was not allowing farmers to advertise that they have raw milk for sale - this prohibition has been lifted!
