When I was a kid in the 70s my grandparents owned and operated a dairy in Arcata (where Cypres Grove is located now). They sold milk, butter and yogurt to the public on site and, through retailers and had contracts to supply milk to the elementary schools. All of that was pasteurized, of course. But we always drank raw milk, used raw cream and ate butter made from raw milk.
It seems many of the "problems" with raw milk predate modern refrigeration.
As is always the case, prohibition has created a black market, which results in inflated prices and an inability to hold problem producers accountable. Raw milk products need to be decriminalized.
