FALLS CHURCH, Va. — The increase in raw milk consumption — according to Center for Disease Control statistics, at least 10 million Americans now consume raw milk — has created innovative partnerships between consumers and their farmers.
By accepting responsibility in their food choices, Americans are paving the way to the next phase of the U.S. local food movement: Partnership with producers to ensure we have a way of providing raw milk and other healthy foods that our families require for good health.
The Farm-to-Consumer Foundation and the Foundation for Consumer Free Choice will co-host the Third Annual Raw Milk Symposium: Producer-Consumer-Choice in Bloomington, Minn.
The event will be held May 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Bloomington. It is open to the public.
