Under current law, raw milk and raw milk products can only be sold at the point of production (the farm). SB 95 would allow the sale of raw milk and raw milk products at farmers’ markets, the seller’s place of business, and through direct-to-consumer distribution.
SB 95 would require the executive commissioner to adopt rules for safe handling and would maintain the authority of municipalities to only allow the sale of pasteurized products in retail markets. This bill would also put in place safety requirements for containment and transportation, requires warning labels to be affixed to products, and would allow the request of inspection reports.
