This is the most in-depth break down of the facts on Raw Milk on the internet. We thank the wonderful people at the Weston A. Price Foundation for putting together this campaign for real milk all the way back in 1998.

Though we do not promote legal action we do support this organization whose goal is to "protect the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce; it protects the rights of farmers to sell the products of the farm and the rights of consumers to access the foods of their choice from the source of their choice. FTCLDF is a true grassroots organization and receives no government funding and little or no corporate funding."
Our wonderful friends at the Lane County Farmers Market have put together this awesome website. We encourage you to visit the site and visit the market. You will see us there.
