The state halted sales in April 2011 and again in August 2012, both times after tests showed a high bacteria count.
The farm sells raw milk at $11 a gallon and $6 for a half gallon.
The prices went up on Sept 1. The website reported: "due to increased Government oversight and regulation, which have increased our costs dramatically, Eastleigh Farm must increase the cost of our raw milk by 10% (now $11/gallon)."
Eastleigh Farm was established in the early 1900’s. It stayed in the same family, operating as a Guernsey dairy until 1981. In 1981, the farm was transferred to a local businessman who owned it until 1996, operating as a beef farm. A developer bought and owned it for six years, continuing to utilize the pastures to raise beef. Eight years ago, the present owner began the process of reconverting the facility to a dairy operation, according to the farm's website.
