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. Does anyone know if “Fair Skies at All I Saw Farm” is now doing, or has ever actually done herd share? Whenever I’ve inquired, I’ve been told they are still waiting for their lawyers to finish going over their herd share contract. This has gone on for five years! If they are only using this location as a place to advertise for goat sales, perhaps their listing should be removed.

    • Webmaster (in Virginia) does not know anything more than what is listed here. However, even if they only offered goat sales, we would list them. That gives others the opportunity to raise their own animals and produce their own milk. The long wait doesn’t surprise me though. Sorry you are having trouble finding a herd share.

    • According to my daughter in Juneau, who spoke to the herd owner, as of August 2016, “Fair Skies” has moved to Juneau & is PREPARING to build up their herd again to where they can share milk.

  2. Hi Elizabeth, thanks for your inquiry. Best place to inquire would be with us directly rather than on this site. I’m not sure if you were really talking to us or another farm that was using our name. We changed our farm name as a result of this confusion.

    We haven’t been advertising shares for 5 years (we’ve barely had the farm that long). We have been working with FTCLDF on writing a contract for about 2-3 years now and there are a lot of intricate details involved in our State laws. The registries where we hold memberships have rules we have to abide by too since we breed, show, and milk. We want to do it right and make sure we have a steady supply of healthy, clean milk for our herd share owners. If you’re on our wait list, we’ll call you when we get to you, but we don’t see you listed at this time. Could you have contacted us under another name? Feel free to contact us directly for further details. Thanks for your continued patience.

  4. I’m looking for raw milk in Juneau. Will any of those listed in Alaska ship to Juneau…and if so, what would the cost be? We’re up for either cow or goat milk – both are great.
