BENNINGTON — Vermont farmers may soon be allowed to sell more raw milk.
A bill that passed in the House of Representatives last week would allow farmers, who can now sell up to 12 gallons of unpasteurized milk per day, to sell up to 40 gallons, according to the Bennington Banner.
And it would regulate sales of under 12 gallons, requiring farmers to register with the state, report their sales, follow sanitary standards and label their products.
A farm selling more than 12 gallons would not be able to ship the milk. The milk could only be sold on the farm.
The bill is now awaiting action by the Senate.
