Raw Milk is Legal in Oregon
So at Thanksgiving dinner the other evening, I again heard from someone "So what you're doing is illegal, right? Raw milk isn't legal in Oregon."
Politely, I stated what I've probably had to say hundreds of times since we started selling milk about 5 years ago: "Raw milk sales are legal in Oregon."
In fact, from what I can tell, many of the producers in this state are not aware that they are legal. I've even seen the wrong idea that it is illegal to sell on another raw milk producer's website.
So let's get it straight: what we do is fully within the law. We are a micro-dairy that is exempt from Oregon dairy licensing and inspection requirements.
