Food safety requirements

Under the new law, farmers will be required to take steps to test and preserve milk quality.

  • Raw milk must be stored below 45ºF.
  • Raw milk must be sold within 7 days.
  • Animals must be tested for bacterial infections.

Labeling requirements

Labeling is also required to inform customers that the milk has not been pasteurized.

Notice to Consumers – This container holds raw milk that is not subject to state inspection or other public health regulations that require pasteurization and grading.

Welcome to legal raw milk, Iowa!

A long list of food processors lost. Iowa farmers and consumers won access to direct farm-to-consumer sales, which were prohibited before this law was enacted. Farms, co-ops, homesteaders, and more can now offer milk to their communities without mandatory middlemen affecting the transaction. Great work!
