That's nasty. Why not just buy milk from privately owned cows and goats and support local farmers? Or just use a milk alternative like rice?


Thats a lot more expensive than it sounds, because a farmer is only allowed to sell a tiny bit of milk without being excessively regulated and not needing really expensive equipment.

There was legislation regarding milk sales 12 years ago that almost destroyed the amish's ability to make a living from their farms, and would have required them to use things that went against their religion. I know there was an uproar about it, but I don't recall the result. The government wanted milk to be stored in electric tank once it was removed from the cow to guarantee it would be kept at a certain temperature or it wouldn't be allowed to be sold for consumption. The amish were arguing that they could keep that temperature by storing their milk in a tank underground.

You also need a business license to sell more than a small amount of milk each month. Not sure what that is, but i imagine its not much since my grandfather stopped selling milk to neighbors in the early 80's and about 70 acres of the farm were devoted to dairy cattle
