N.H. farmer sells raw milk

MILFORD, N.H. (AP)--In an attempt to cut out the middleman and make some money, a New Hampshire dairy farm is selling raw milk directly to consumers.

Fitch Farm in Milford is selling unpastuerized milk, which hasn't been heated to kill bacteria, at its farm stand. It also is selling beef from its own cows.

The farm's David Fitch says consumers are paying a lot less for the milk. He told the Nashua Telegraph that the farm has to do something to make money. To sell the milk in other places would require a whole new set of licenses from the state Department of Agriculture.

The government frowns on unpasteurized dairy products for health reasons. But advocates of raw milk say pasteurization also removes some of the healthy bacteria and much of the taste.
