An Amish farm in Pennsylvania has been stopped from selling contraband milk after a year-long federal government sting operation.
The Rainbow Acres Farm was found to have been smuggling banned unpasteurised milk to customers in Maryland.
Raw milk drinkers claim that pasteurisation eliminates good bacteria and changes the taste.
But the Food and Drug Administration say unpasteurised milk can carry harmful bacteria such as salmonella, E.coli and listeria.
