Apparently if you live in France you can buy RAW milk out in the open without being arrested! Can you imagine? They even have these cute little tiny house dispensers in front of grocery stores where you can help yourself while you get to hear mooooing while your milk jug is being filled. Check out French Letters for additional photos.
“in a French supermarket parking lot, was a little hut with a raw milk distribution system that was even more ingenious. The machine will sell you a sterilized plastic bottle for 20 centimes, or a glass bottle for 3 Euros. The milk is 1 Euro a liter, but you can get smaller amounts if you wish. You buy a bottle, or bring your own, insert it into the machine, and immediately ice cold milk issues, accompanied by loud mooing sounds. They might even be described as bellowing sounds, loud enough that every person in the parking lot, and possibly some shoppers in the store who are busy buying milk in small cardboard cubes that keep forever, know that someone somewhere is buying raw milk. It couldn’t be less secret.
The sign on the machine instructs you to use a perfectly clean bottle, to refrigerate the contents immediately, and to drink your milk within three days of purchase. In other words, the machine treats you like the adult you are, except that it moos at you, in a most delightful way.”
