The only justification for selling raw milk across state lines would be close proximity to the end user. The whole raw milk "fad" should be primarily about "local food" and direct relationships between farmers and consumers. If a farm on a state line wants to sell to consumers just over the line that's fine, but wholsale transport of raw milk across state lines for widespread distribution is not.

I've got no problem with raw milk sales, as long the milk is regulated to meet bacterial/safety standards. I'd have to say no to interstate sales due to the perishable nature of the product. If you want to drive across the state line and purchase on-farm, that is your business, but it shouldn't be shipped or delivered across lines.
