State Regulations

New York State allows only on-farm sale of raw milk.

Permits may be obtained from the Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets which allow the permit-holder to sell raw milk under a number of conditions...

Sales must be made directly to a consumer.

Sales must also be made on the farm where the raw milk is produced.

A sign must be placed near the point of sale which reads: “NOTICE: Raw milk sold here. Raw milk does not provide the protection of pasteurization.” (Chapter 1, New York Code of Rules and Regulations, Section 2.3).
