Raw Milk dairies
Only 2 ‘countries’ have a blanket ban on raw cow's milk: Australia and Canada. Note that Scotland is not considered a ‘country’ by some. Raw goat's milk in Australia is regulated and legal to produce and sell for human consumption in 4 states. Australian regulations changed in 2015 to allow the production of raw milk cheese. In Scotland it is illegal to sell raw drinking milk, although raw milk cheese production and sales are legal. However, the Scots have been bringing in raw milk from across the border for many years, because there are technically no legal impediments. The courier service sales in England is seen as a direct farm-to-consumer sale, which is a requirement in England & Wales regulations. Raw milk for human consumption is technically ‘illegal’ in Canada unless you own the animal, but some communities enjoy access via herd shares ‘ownership’, and some routinely bring it in from the USA where it is available in 12 of the 13 bordering states.
Please help the Australian Raw Milk Movement lobby the government to get legislation in place for a regulated raw cow's milk industry in Australia. Some Australians access ‘raw bath milk’ but since 2015 Victorians are unable to access any due to regulations that it require a bitter, gag inducing agent to discourage consumption.
