NEWS DIGEST - Is There A Raw Milk Bill in Your State?

Raw Milk Bill in Your State? + Custom Slaughter in Tennesee
Dear Food Freedom Friend,

Wonderful news for you this week: 
  • Many states only allow custom-slaughtered animals to be divided up between four individual owners. Now in Tennessee, thanks to an Attorney General's opinion, there is no limit on the number of owners for a custom-slaughtered animal. Perhaps other states will follow.
  • Legislators have introduced raw milk bills in several states where any raw milk sales or distribution is illegal, and a number of other states have introduced legislation that would expand legal access.
Also, if you want to talk to us in person, check out our upcoming events to see if we'll be near you anytime soon.

See more details on the above, below!
