  •  I'd avoid the term "raw dairy," if I were you. (9+ / 0-)

    "Fresh milk" would be better, since that would distinguish it from the stuff that's cooked. "Raw" is not an attractive word.
    Also, a dairy is a place. Using just that word for everything that's produced from milk is a lazy short-cut, while "non-dairy" is down-right deceptive in failing to make the point that man-made look-alikes are barely food.

    That Pasteur had the name he had was a stroke of luck. It gave the process he developed to kill harmful bacteria that might get into the milk via unsanitary milking and transport conditions an attractive moniker. For people who aren't too clear about what happens when (have no sense of time), pasteurization might as well refer to the locale where contented cows feed to produce their yummy milk. (We do not know how many people have no sense of time or sequence, but it's obviously an add-on, since only a few time-keepers can keep the many on track).

    Fresh milk from free ranging cows. That's what the monopolists want to restrict. Herders follow their cows; dairymen keep them locked up.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
