Yes, they are. It is not legal in this state to sell raw (unpasteurized) milk to the public. However, you may use as much raw milk as you wish from your own cow. Since you own a share in one of Real Milk Farm's cows, you may legally use the milk from your share in any way you see fit. During the past two years or so, several cowshare programs have been implemented in this state, and have been functioning well with no problems. Real Milk Farm has consulted with its lawyer in setting up its cowshare program. (You will be asked to sign a contract for your cowshare at the time of its purchase.) Also, Real Milk Farm works with the state Department of Agriculture; and has obtained its approval in setting up this cowshare program.
