Hear, hear!! Max!! We really need to get our heads on straight in the US about raw milk.
During this election year it is important to remember that there are several political components to the cheese world. It would be great to hear a few choice cheese questions posed to the candidates during the debates, such as: where do you stand on raw milk cheeses?
For many of us this is an important question. Many livelihoods depend on this one: the raw milk cheese producers, and many retailers and distributors.
Case in point: our federal regulations regarding raw milk cheeses have not been updated since the 1940’s; it is high time they be revisited in an unbiased and scholarly way. It’s kind of like we are living in another silly but extended Prohibition. When will the regulations be aligned with reason?
