New Date and Location Set for Board of Health Raw Milk Regulations Hearing

A second attempt by the Board of Health to hold a hearing on proposed rules and regulations relative to the sale and distribution of unpasurized raw milk will take place on Dec. 16 at the Ahern Middle School auditorium.

The regulations, proposed by board member Eric Arvedon, could create new rules for the sale of unpasteurized raw milk if the board votes to continue allowing the sale of the product in Foxboro.

The only business that would be effected by the regulations would be Lawton's Farm on North Street. The farm, which has been in business for over 300 years, is the only seller of unpasteurized raw milk in Norfolk County.

A large crowd is expected after 140 people attempted to take part in the first public hearing on Nov. 25 at the Foxboro Public Safety Building. The board was forced to postpone the hearing after the meeting room hit capacity and a large crowd made up of mostly supports for the Lawtons outside the room brought upon safety concerns.

The meeting is expected to start at 7 p.m. with the public hearing to open at 7:30.
