TN Raw Milk

Nashville, TN – Tennessee dairy farmers can now legally sell raw milk from their farms. Governor Phil Bredesen signed the measure last week and it takes effect immediately. State agriculture officials say it was already legal for owners to drink milk from their animals, but the issue has been with purchasing it. Supporters say the law allows people who want to drink raw milk to legally buy it from the animal's owner by purchasing a share of the animal.
