GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) Wearing sweaters, small kids (of the goat variety) went springing over hay-lined pens in the Good Karma Micro-Dairy barn in Russell County where Erin and Doug Renard milk goats and cows and make raw cheese, Greek yogurt, butter and gelato.
As you noticed when you came here, theres no signs, Erin Renard told the Kansas News Service. One of the reasons theres no signs is expense. But the other reason was we couldnt even put raw milk on the sign. Now we can.
Prior to November, the Renards and other Kansas raw milk producers could advertise their products with only a sign on the farm a 1967 law outlawed raw milk advertising otherwise. That changed when the Kansas Department of Agriculture settled a lawsuit with Mark and Coraleen Bunner, the owners of Shepherds Gate Dairy.
