Cindy,
Check this site out. Looks like NY is legal for farm sales only.

Cheesemakers are facing the pressure as well and are very concerned because many wonderful cheeses can only be made with raw milk as it's been done for centuries. Some cheesemakers are already scrambling their brains to figure out how to make comparable cheeses using pasteurized milk. I just recently read about this in a wonderful cheese book.

Probably is illegal. Like I said, it's like that here too. There are ways around that. I can also buy raw milk cheese at the grocery store.

I am in NY and I think it is probably illegal from what I have read. However, they sell the raw milk cheese with no problem so I am unsure...

It is illegal; to buy and sell it here also. That's why I purchase a SHARE of the cow. It is totally legal to drink raw milk from my own cow. So, I pay the farmer a milking fee. Not for the milk itself.
The health board is always hasselling the farm lady. I think she kind of GROOVES on it. lol

ANyhow, it's called a HERDSHARE Program.

In Oregon it is illegal for retail stores to offer raw milk but (so far, cross our fingers) it is still legal to buy it from a neighbor who has a dairy cow. The term "neighbor" hasn't been specified yet and my "neighbor" cow is about 10 miles from me. I also have some "neighbor" goats about 4 miles away. I like this

Cindy,
Where are you located at? Depending on where you're at you may be able to buy raw milk in your state. In Maryland its illegal to buy or sell raw milk however Pennsylvania is legal for retail sales.

I have not yet found raw milk, but have had raw cheese. I like the raw cheese even though my body doesn't like the dairy products! emoticon

I won't drink store milk after drinking raw milk. My milk starts to sour after about a week. But, it rarely gets a chance to. My kid and my hubby LOVE the stuff! It has a really fresh taste. Not like stale milk from the store.
Also, DON'T BOIL IT!!! lol. If you do, you may as well just buy the crap at the store.

Sorry, you asked another important question: How long does it last? As long as you want it to (almost) You see, when pasteurized milk goes bad it really goes BAD! Raw milk doesn't really go bad in that sense, it simply sours and as it goes through different stages of souring it can be used for different things. Raw milk has healthy bacteria living in it which can fight off invading bacteria from the environment whereas the bacteria and enzymes in pasteurized milk have been killed making the milk stay "fresh" a little longer but it cannot sustain its freshness and eventually gives way to totally rancid and putrid--eewwww!

Well, if you boil it, it's not raw anymore is it?! Yes, you can make cheese out of it. that is something I have been studying lately. To get the nutritional benefit of the raw-ness you need to consume it in its raw state. If you are getting raw milk then chances are very great that the milk you are getting is fresh and from a farm that takes very good care of their animals. That means that even if you use it in cooking you are still getting a very high quality milk so don't worry about it. Just do try to use it raw every chance you get.

Just wondering, after purchasing raw milk do you boil it or not? Also, how long does the milk last? Does anyone make cheese out of it? Thanks for the help.
