TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Senate has approved a bill that would allow on-the-farm sales of raw milk so long as farmers have a label on their containers stating that the product is unpasteurized.
The vote Wednesday was 37-3 and sent the measure to the House.
Kansas has allowed the sale of raw milk for decades, but a 1967 law prohibited farmers from advertising its sale outside of their farms. A northwest Kansas dairy farm’s owners sued over the advertising ban in October.
