Raw milk: it’s all about the money

I admire Cindy Westover for her honesty.

Cindy told the Brattleboro Reformer yesterday that her family swung open its barn doors at Great Brook Farm over the weekend to celebrate its decision to start selling raw milk in the new milkhouse farm store, to give her family a greater margin on every gallon sold, and for dairy farmers, every extra dollar helps.

The story talks about the differences between state laws in New Hampshire and Vermont, with Westover saying the Vermont raw milk law — apparently a variation of don’t ask don’t tell — makes it harder for farmers, adding,

"It’s too bad Vermont has that rule because if Vermont and New Hampshire dairy farmers go out of business, it will change everything in the two states. The state should do what it can to help farmers survive."
