Episode Info: People are looking for raw milk but why is raw milk so hard to find? That’s the topic of today’s podcast. It’s a complicated topic and I’ll break it down into three categories as well as make suggestions regarding what you can do about it. I’m very excited about today’s topic. Raw milk is a passion of mine. I hope all of you who are new listeners will enjoy this podcast. I appreciate your stopping by and welcome your feedback. And a warm welcome back to the veteran homestead-loving regulars who stop by the FarmCast every week. I appreciate you all so much. This podcast is for you. Let me know what you’d like to hear and I will make it happen. Today’s Show Homestead Life Updates Why is Raw Milk so Hard to Find? Hot Buttered Rum Mix Homestead Life Updates Will the heat never end? I think I’ve said this before, but I really don’t like the extremes of summer and winter. The cold seems to hang on forever in winter and the heat seems to hang on forever in summer. I’m so ready for fall. I’m ready for the leaves to turn. Fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains is glorious. The Weather Channel usually has a map that shows the progress of the leaves starting in upstate New Hampshire and Vermont and progressing all the way down the Appalachian Mountain chain to Alabama.

Her new owner seems very conscientious and I believe she will be in good hands. All four outside concrete block walls of the creamery are now complete. Next the inside concrete block walls, then the roof, plumbing, electrical, and gas. There will be inside walls and tile flooring. The windows and doors. So much to do. We take one step at a time and gradually the destination comes closer. On to today’s topic. Why Is Raw Milk So Hard to Find? The reasons are varied but seem to revolve around three things. It’s illegal in many places The risk of being on the radar of the USDA and/or FDA Legal ramifications if you are targeted I’ll also go over what you can do to help. But first, the reasons. It’s illegal in many places I’ve spoken of this before. I’ll do a recap of that information. Why it is illegal is another great question and a subject for another podcast. Today I want to talk about what’s legal and what’s not. And I also want to discuss how that affects your access, the consumer. The laws affect your ability to make your own informed choices about what you will feed your family. My grand nephew has problems with psoriasis that is relieved by drinking raw milk. I’ve had people tell me their body a...
