Default Raw Milk

So, I can buy raw milk in San Diego from Jimbos for making cheese. I am wondering if I still need to pasteurize it or can I just us it as is. I am sure it is very sanitary if it is being sold in the Jimbo's store. I am only making aged cheeses.

Thanks,
Tom

In my opinion, you do not need to pasteurize the milk for aged cheeses. I know that the government rules about commercial cheeses just changed, but I think they're being overcautious. Even a week ago, commercial cheeses didn't have to use pasteurized milk if the cheese was aged at least 60 days.
