Nice u can get a license over there in mn it's a no go! I advertise for crafting purposes and usually get a few hitsIn Wisconsin all raw milk is illegal. Cheese, soaps, etc. Have to carry a license and surrender to quarterly inspections.
I've looked into the WA laws extensively and even to sell for animal consumption one has to have a license. AND the milk has to have added color, to make it less likely to be drank by humans. I do see a lot of people selling it for animal use, but given that it still holds a $1000 fine and/or year in jail, per count... not worth the risk in my book.I live in WA State and it is illegal to sell milk, I bought goats milk off Craig's list that stated not for human consumption, but well that's why I bought it I will also advertise it as not for human consumption, but ultimately it will be up to them. When I bought it I did make sure they drank it, came from a disease free herd, and that they had good sanitary practices when processing the milk. I now have 1 kinder in milk, 1 pregnant, and one Nubian/Lamancha we believe is pregnant, so I will be having a lot of milk soon
Good to know for sure. That is stupid..... I wonder who would really go out and check??? Now I'm skeptical, I know I have some friends and family that will buy it, so I guess I won't advertise on Craigslist.I've looked into the WA laws extensively and even to sell for animal consumption one has to have a license.

They tried to pass a bill in 2011 but it didnt get pushed through and I dont see that any further attempts have been made. HAD it passed, those with less than 2 cows or I think 8 goats would not have had to have a license to sell FROM THEIR FARM. You would still need one to sell from any other location.
I was talking with a friend about how dumb the law is. They cite the "health risks" of raw milk (of course without any mention of the health BENEFITS)... but her interesting point was that we have the CHOICE to purchase/sell and/or consume all sorts of other things that are unhealthy. This list now includes marijuana too (well, not the selling yet... but the consumption!)! LOL So... it's legal to eat fast food, soda, cheetos, etc... to drink booze and smoke cigarettes or pot, but you can get thrown in the slammer for raw milk.
