Florida gets Raw

October 10, 2011

People in Florida can buy raw milk for their pets, but not for their families. This law is not stopping the unpasteurized dairy movement from blossoming in the Sunshine State.

It is believed that many of the raw farms are indeed selling to consumers in an underground supply chain. A growing number of Floridians believe that they have a right to choose what kind of food they put in their bodies.

"It's legal to consume. It's not like a drug that you can get arrested for possession or distribution," said Pete Kennedy, president and attorney for Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, a national organization that advocates for the right to buy and consume raw milk. "The law is dysfunctional."
