Mark McAfee, of Organic Pastures Dairy Company in Fresno, talks about AB 1735, the raw-milk bill, which passed the California legislature in October. Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized or heated, and is illegal in some states. Its proponents believe its healthy bacteria, enzymes and proteins are beneficial. Although California has always allowed the sale of raw milk, the just-passed bill provides for stricter bacteria limitations. Organic Pastures was California's first raw milk dairy with certified organic pasture land. To learn the latest on the raw milk debate, visit the Organic Pastures website.
