Demand for Raw Milk Exploding

According to David E. Gumpert , the demand for raw milk is exploding. As a result, he says, the government is changing its tactics. “For many years, the federal and local authorities relied on stoking the public’s fear of disease to keep people away from raw milk putting a damper on the demand side of the equation. “

“But as increasing numbers of people learn how remote the risks associated with drinking raw milk really are in today’s world, consumers are ignoring the authorities. Indeed, the government warnings seem only to stimulate further demand.” He quotes an attorney for the Weston Price Foundation, Pete Kennedy, as saying “So instead of trying to control the demand, the government is trying to control the supply by harassing farmers so they’ll hopefully become discouraged and go back to the pasteurization routine.”
