5 Raw Milk Success Stories That Everyone Should Be Aware Of
We have access to A LOT of information these days. A simple Google search will present you with arguments for both ends of the raw milk spectrum. The problem with these arguments though, is that they compare apple to apples - raw milk to pasteurized milk.
So, why can’t you compare raw milk to pasteurized milk?
As the Raw Milk Institute clearly puts it in their extremely helpful tool, a Letter to Medical Professionals about Raw Milk:
“Commodity raw milk and dedicated raw drinking milk are categorically different foods. It is clear that raw milk produced with the intention to be pasteurized is likely to contain dangerous pathogens. However, raw milk that is carefully produced for direct human consumption is subjected to rigorous testing and standards. Evidence has shown that this type of raw milk is a low-risk food.”
Even with this approach in mind, we know there are a handful of people who have had bad raw milk experiences. We haven’t had any at our farm but we think of it this way:
Do you have a favorite restaurant? Guess what? There are people out there who hate that restaurant because they had a bad meal there. So you’re going to swear it off now? This is just how life goes.

With this approach in mind, we thought it’d be fun to round up a few of those positive raw milk stories in one place - right here on our blog. Dig in and let these joyful experiences be your medicine for the day.
