“Just so you know, donkey’s milk is coming to the US! Raw donkey milk is going great guns in France and Belgium. Marie Tack in Belgium sells donkey milk that meets European bacteriological standards. I visited two farms in France and drank milk directly from many burros (delicious!). I will go to Belgium next year to visit Marie myself who milks 50 head of mammoth jennets each day. Donkey milk is the closest milk to human breast milk and is ideal for feeding infants. It is in a state of rediscovery in France and Belgium and will be available here in the future. Donkeys don’t carry bovine diseases. Visit www.asineriedupaysdescollines.be to see her operation.”
It remains to be seen whether this will catch on in the United States and if the milk will be offered unpasteurized. Readers who have additional information about donkey milk in the US, please email the Weston A. Price Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
