Public Interest in Raw Milk Overwhelms Foxborough, MA

Foxborough, MA Public Hearing on Raw Milk Moved to December 16

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.

Monday, December 16, 2013
Ahern Middle School Auditorium

  1. In a democracy, we should have the right to decide what we chose to put in our bodies. Unfortunately, our democracy is controlled by corporations whose sole interest is making money for themselves and shareholders. They insure the bottom line by corruption of our democracy to serve their sole purpose, making money without regards to the damage they cause to our democracy. It is what cancer does to live!
