Colorado Senate Bill to Authorize Direct-to-Consumer Sales of Raw Milk

Colorado Senate Bill to Authorize Direct-to-Consumer Sales of Raw Milk

Raw milk can only be distributed through herdshare programs in Colorado, as of now, but that could change this 2024 Regular Session. A bipartisan bill to legalize direct-to-consumer sales of raw milk (on-farm) is progressing through the Colorado Legislature.

While this bill will not allow raw milk to be sold in grocery stores, it’ll save raw milk enjoyers some paperwork, and allow for easier one-off purchases on the farm for farmers who meet the requirements.

Senate Bill 24 Prime Sponsors

  • Senator Dylan Roberts (D-Frisco)
  • Senator Byron Pelton (R)
  • Representative Julie McCluskie (D)
