The Raw Milk Institute (RAWMI) provides training for raw milk farmers to keep their facilities clean and produce clean milk.
From equipment recommendations, farm and animal organization, strip-down cleaning protocols, to on-site testing and more. They are the premiere resource for high-standard, hygienic raw milk production in America.
My opinion, long view of an ideal dairy situation in America and the world over is two-fold.
- Cottage Freedom: no one who owns a couple animals should have to file paperwork to sell a few gallons of milk direct to the consumer.
- Replacing the pasteurized/ homogenized dairy system with clean, medium-large scale raw milk farms who will carry out high-volume dairy production for the greater market.
RAWMI is outlining standards that will keep those farms clean.
