Urgent Legislation - Raw Cream & Butter

Let's make a change!

Did you know raw cream and raw butter are illegal to sell in Utah? Our Representative, Kim Coleman, is trying to change it via House Bill 182, which will legalize the sale of these two products from licensed raw milk producers. (To read the text of the bill click here.) We just learned this bill will be heard by the House Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environment Committee tomorrow, Wednesday, February 6 at 4:00pm. The bill needs to make it out of committee to then be voted on.

Here's how you can help:

1. Attend the meeting! This show of support will let the committee know there are many Utah citizens who want the freedom to purchase raw cream and raw butter. The meeting will be Wednesday, February 6th, at 4:00pm in Rm 445 State Capitol Building (it is the main building, on the 4th floor). To see the agenda click here.

2. Contact the committee members! A simple email or phone call to let them each know you support this bill. A list of members can be found here, or their contact information is below:

This bill will be met with opposition from some large agriculture organizations. We know it's short notice but anything you can do will help. Our farm will be there to speak in support of this and we would love to have you join us.

Here's to healthy, healing foods and the freedom to choose what we eat!
