Important Notes about the Listings

  1. RAW MILK POLICY STATEMENT: The Weston A. Price Foundation’s goals include promoting a healthy diet for people everywhere, based on natural and traditional foods, and assisting individuals and families in accessing those foods through information, education, and helping to restore the direct relationship between food consumers and food producers. The Foundation believes, based on sound scientific evidence, that raw milk is an important component of a healthy diet. To assist its members and the public in obtaining raw milk, the Foundation publishes a list of farms that produce it, because this information is not otherwise readily and comprehensively available to consumers. Listing of a farm does not imply endorsement by the Foundation. Individuals who purchase raw milk and other natural foods for themselves and their families need to “know their farmer” because they bear the responsibility for ensuring that they are getting safe and healthy products.
  2. NO ADVERTISING: The Foundation accepts no money for the listings; the listings are not advertisements. All listings are at the sole discretion of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
  3. NO MARKETING: The email addresses listed here are not to be used for any purpose other than to contact the farmers regarding the availability of their products. Use of the listed email addresses for marketing or other such purposes is strictly prohibited.
  4. RAW MILK CONSUMERS PLEASE NOTE: This list of raw milk sources probably represents only a portion of the raw milk producers in your state. For additional raw milk sources, contact your local Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter Leader.
  5. RAW MILK PRODUCERS PLEASE NOTE: The FDA and State Agencies have discovered this list and sometimes use it for their own purposes, so exercise caution with your listing. If you choose not to have a listing, make sure your local WAPF Chapter Leader has your name for referrals.
  6. USDA, FDA and STATE AG AGENCIES PLEASE NOTE: Raw milk is Nature’s perfect food and is extremely important for the developing brains and nervous systems of infants and children. Furthermore, in many children not fortunate enough to have started life on raw milk, raw milk given later in childhood has improved autism, behavior problems, frequent infections, deafness, asthma and allergies and other serious health conditions. Please bear in mind that any move you make to stop or hinder a raw dairy operation will actually HARM, not help the infants and children who rely on that milk, and may make it difficult for all children to obtain this milk in the future–including your own children and grandchildren. An interruption in supply can be VERY detrimental to a growing infant or sick child who has no other options. Read for yourself on our Testimonials page. If you are concerned about safety, rest assured. In the farm-to-consumer distribution model, the farmer receives timely and relevant feedback directly from the customers, something that farmers selling bulk milk never receive. Raw milk is actually the safest food around with so much consumer oversight and also with an extremely efficient built-in anti-pathogen mechanism! If you are concerned about rules, then consider investing the same amount of time you’d spend persecuting a raw milk farmer into advocating for supportive raw milk legislation.
  7. LISTING SOURCES: The listings here are provided by people who discover sources of real milk in their communities and tell us about them. If you discover a listed supplier is no longer providing real milk, please tell us about it by following the instructions on the Add, Update, or Remove a Listing page. We trust our members and consumers to check out each farm to make sure it is clean and that the cows are mostly pasture fed.

  1. Thank you for giving an informative list of raw milk products. I didn’t even know about raw milk until recently watched this documentary on Netflix called “Farmageddon”
    it was disturbing to find out about the raids of these farms for selling a milk because the federal government seems to think that making real natural food is an awful thing. So thank you for informing the people with your website!

    • Whole Foods, Earth Fare and other local “fresh, real food” mentality markets should have raw cheeses and grass fed meat. Stores don’t/can’t sell raw milk. Although, I really wish they would—even if they labeled the containers “Not for human consumption” and then we could do with it as we please after buying it. :)

  2. I live in Huntsville, Al and would like to know where is the closest farm that sells raw milk for pet consumption. Thank you.

  3. Okay, I am new to this. Even though most of these listings in Alabama say “for pet/animal consumption” it’s still the real raw milk Imwould drink, right? Thanks!

    • In states where sale is legal “for animal consumption only,” many people buy the milk to drink themselves. I am not aware of any difference in how it is handled. Do not ask the farmer about drinking it yourself however. In states where “for animal consumption only” is the law, the farmer can get in trouble for talking to you about it for human consumption. Of course, humans are animals…

      • I HAVE A JERSEY MILK COW AND HAVE EXTRA MILK FROM TIME TO TIME. I CANNOT SELL IT DUE TO ITS NOT WORTH FIGHTING THE LEGAL SYSTEM. WISH I COULD I KNOW THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF RAW MILK. I AM IN THE HUNTSVILLE AREA.

        • Is your cow exclusively Grassfed? Can you email me? I have a need for real, raw milk to make yogurt and whey to help my son heal. We just moved to Huntsville.

        • I am looking for raw cow milk to help my pet dog who is following the GAPS diet, if you know what I mean. I tried raw goat milk and made it into kefir twice, but it tastes terrible, even though online people say it should be more smooth and creamy than cow’s milk. I think the goat milk is just more fragile and just a pain to work with, Can you help?

          • can you tell me where you found the goat milk. I also follow GAPS but can’t tolerate cow milk

  4. I need raw safe milk for puppies and other animals. please contact with info in order to purchase. Thank you very much. Gordon

  5. I live in Birmingham and have been buying raw milk weekly from a dear man in the Cullman area for the past 8 months, but sadly, he is retiring. Is there anyone in the Decatur/Priceville/Falkville/Vinemont/Cullman area who is able to sell me 5 gallons of Jersey milk a week? I drive this direction on Sundays. Thank you!

    • Susan, I also live in the Birmingham area and I looking for raw cow’s milk to treat osteoporosis. The closest place I can find is 1 1/2 hours away. If you have heard of someone closer who sells it, maybe we could take turns picking it up.

  6. you can always pray if you are a christian and have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior..pray God’s word Proverbs 27:27
    “You shall have enough goats’ milk for your food, For the food of your household, And the nourishment of your maidservants.” I have prayed this the past 9 years and have lived in five different states and God has always been faithful to His word and provided for me and He will do it for you too.

  7. We are new to Calhoun County. Are there any dairys in the area to purchase raw milk from? Also, are the benefits to low-heat pasteurized milk the same is raw milk? Wright’s Dairy has pasteurized milk.

  8. I am also looking for raw, grass fed cow’s milk anywhere close to Birmingham, Alabama. I am willing to travel up to 45 minutes one way. Please let me know if you know of anyone selling it.

  9. I live in Mississippi, maybe 60 miles west on Hwy 78, which is what Hwy 4 becomes. I milk my Jersey girl twice a day, and I dont know what to do with all of this rich good stuff. I can only think to get another bottle calf to help out so I don’t have to waste it, and it makes me so sick to think about dumping it. I dread thinking about the repercussions of doing something against the law, but I sure wish I could supply some sick people with my milk. It just tugs at my heart reading all these posts of people with loved ones who have found that raw milk aids their conditions.

    • If you have enough milk regularly you may want to set yourself up as a regular source and have a listing on this site. If your supply is irregular you can do what I suppose many folks who have a cow do, and give away your occasional excess to friends and neighbors. The more people who milk cows the more we can ensure there is a supply available for everyone who needs it.

    • Sarah,
      I live in New Orleans, LA and I’m looking for a raw milk source close enough for a day’s drive. All I have found in Mississippi so far is goat’s milk, but I’m looking for cow’s milk. If you could please call me or email me, maybe we could work something out. My email address is neanram@yahoo.com and my cell number is 504-615-9841.
      Thank you,
      Jeannine

  10. My parents love in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and has osteoporosis. How far are you from Hattiesburg? I would love for him to get milk from you.

  11. I decided to post something for my milk under the state of MS. Although I produce this milk for my table, the sale of cow’s milk is prohibited for human consumption in the state of MS. I can’t offer my product to anyone who expresses to me that they want it for themselves or another person. I can, however, offer my milk as a whole and natural animal feed. I am located in North MS, about 80 miles southeast of Memphis and an hour or so from the Alabama state line. You may contact me directly at 901 361 2041 if you are interested.

  12. Looking for someone who has raw goat’s milk near Trussville Alabama. Will drive across state if necessary. My wife needs to make a yogurt from raw goat’s milk for a health condition she has. Please let me know if you have or know of someone who has it. Would be much appreciated.

  13. we have raw goat milk,raw cow milk,grass fed grass beef pasture raised pork grass fed lamb free range chickens fresh eggs we live 45 minutes south of Huntsville phone 205 429 3834

  14. Hi, Is there anyone out there selling range free and organically raised eggs (does not need to be certified) near the Birmingham or Leeds, AL area? Also is there anyone selling raw goat milk that is mostly raised on pasture and organically as well? I am currently buying the raw goat’s milk, raw goat cheese, and raw cow cream from an Amish family in Pennsylvania (shipped to my family) and it is good, but it would be nice to be able to support the local farmers.

    Thanks,

    Michele

  15. We sell raw cow and goat milk for pet consumption. We sell grass fed beef, pasture raised pork, free range chickens and eggs, grass fed lamb, and all naturally grown vegetables. We also have a food coop in Birmingham that comes to our farm one day a week to pick up orders. If interested call for details 205 429 3834.

    • Terry what days are you in Birmingham? I live in southeast Blount county. I have a friend who is looking for raw cow milk.

  16. I live in Hamilton, Alabama, and would love to be able to obtain real milk near where I am, but also would drive just to be able to get it again. Will drive an hour or so, but would love to get it closer as we are homeschooing family of 5 as well as pastor a church. Not sure how cow shares work, but if that means I rent a cow for a year, would gladly do that to have good milk for my family!

  17. The Working Cows Dairy of Slocumb Alabama, which is included in the list of sources above, produces certified organic milk and cream from 100% grass fed cows that is not homogenized and is pasteurized at low temperatures. The milk is sold in 11 different stores in the Birmingham area according to the list on their website. I have found that milk to be better (has more cream) than the raw milk “for pet consumption” sold near where I live.

  18. I live in Huntsville and you can purchase raw cow’s milk for pet consumption / kefir at the Green Street Market at Nativity on Thursdays May thru October.

  19. I live near i20 exit 5 al/ga line.looking for real milk, and beef close. Have only seen places at least 2 hours away.
