    The state of New Hampshire has put the kibosh a farm stand's ice cream made from raw milk.

    Jill Fudala said her ice cream made from goat milk and sold in cherry walnut, black raspberry and other flavors was a hit -- until the state stepped in.

    The Boston Globe reports that customers could pay on the honor system at her farm stand. That was before the state Department of Health and Human Services threatened to fine Fudala unless she stopped selling the ice cream. The department contends processed dairy products must be made with pasteurized milk.

    State Rep. James Allard said he hopes to help Fudala return to her ice cream production. He's exploring whether to submit a bill "to update the language" of the state law.
