  1. Every time I feel discouraged about our struggles to see raw milk here in Illinois ( only a 15 year battle WITHOUT any jail time, fines or fees) I think of Michael and his family. Their work has benefitted all of us udder deep in this issue and their sacrifices are not taken lightly, at least not by us here on our little farm in Illinois.

      We have made many sacrifices too. Providing whole slow pasteurized milk to the public is not easy either. However, it fits the criteria of the health inspectors and other gov’t red tape. Many farms across the united States and provinces in Canada have adopted this practice as a safe compromise. Many raw milk drinkers are concerned about the homogenization process or the robbing of essential enzymes, bacteria and nutrients. Slow pasteurization keeps 80+ % of those components intact.

    Interesting program: raw milk in Ontario. My question is: in Vermont farms use the alternative to Raw milk. Why hasn’t the people and the media considered ‘slow pasteurization’ as the nest alternative to raw milk and commercial pasteurization? (Raw milk drinkers look for enzymes and good bacteria and whole milk properties, slow pasteurized whole milk has these properties).
