We get our milk from a wonderful dairy farm. They have cow shares and we pick up the milk at our local farmer's market.
Another local farm had a couple of people get Q fever and they are blaming the raw milk.
So our farm's insurance company will not cover them selling raw milk anymore. They are going to low temp vat pasteurization. I am so upset. I love the raw milk and in two years have never had a problem with it. It makes me so frustrated that we as a society are so caught up with this issue. Did everyone who sells spinach lose their insurance after the e coli outbreak? We have had so many meat and produce recalls and everyone just accepts it as part of the food distribution risk. You can get Q fever by just inhaling barn dust too- should we wear environmental suits to work on a farm or visit the zoo?
Crazy, we are a crazy society.
