In addition, 15 states allow retail sales as long as the milk producer owns and operates the store. Utah falls in this category but with one caveat, said Richard Clark, with the Utah Department of Agriculture.

Clark said that while "there has definitely been more interest in raw milk" in Utah over the last 5 to 8 years, it is still a concern.

"If a consumer is going to buy raw milk, they need to be careful who they buy it from and make sure the producer has a permit," Clark said. "We discourage anyone going to their neighbor with a cow."
