The public hearing on proposed changes to the regulations allowing the sales of raw milk in Foxborough, MA has been moved to Monday, December 16, 2013 at 7pm at Ahern Middle School auditorium. The proposed changes threaten to put out of business Lawton’s Family Farm, which has been operating for over 300 years and is the only seller of raw milk in Norfolk County.
The Board of Health was forced to postpone the first public hearing on November 25 after a crowd of 140 people, made up mostly of Lawton supporters, exceeded the capacity of the meeting room and brought on safety concerns.
A large crowd is expected at the December 16 public hearing as well. The meeting is expected to start at 7pm, with the public hearing set to start at 7:30pm.
