Healthy Raw Milk! OCA Takes a Stand in Massachusetts

OCA and irate organic consumers will dump conventional pasteurized milk in Boston on the steps of the Massachusetts State House and hold a raw milk "Drink In" at 24 Beacon Street, May 10th at 8:30 am (across from Boston Common).

The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) under prodding from large dairy corporations and the FDA are attempting to restrict the delivery of raw milk to thousands of consumers throughout Massachusetts. Earlier this year, the MDAR issued a cease and desist order to raw milk buying clubs who were delivering the milk to customers across the state. If passed, the Massachusetts law could set a dangerous national precedent.

The Massachusetts law is just the latest in a calculated assault against small farmers and unprocessed raw foods in America. Over three million Americans now prefer organic raw milk and dairy products over conventional pasteurized milk because of its superior nutrition and disease fighting capabilities, and because it comes from small, local producers who pasture their dairy cows, rather than feeding them GMO grains on huge, disease-ridden intensive-confinement factory farms.

Following the OCA sponsored protest on May 10, the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture is holding a public hearing on raw milk at 10 AM, Conference Room A, 100 Cambridge Street, Boston (by Government Center, near the intersection with Bowdoin Street).

Bring a sign! Bring raw milk! Bring a cow! Have a cow! We're having a Raw Milk Drink-In!

If you can't attend the hearing, please submit written comments.
