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. Thanks for this useful info. Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op also sells Organic Pastures milk and possibly other products. You can check with them at 707 462-4778. Keep up the good work!

    • Are there any Raw milk providers who raise purely grass fed cows, no grains or corn supplements? I have been searching and am amazed that Organic Pastures and Claravale Farms are the only ones I can find and both feed herbivorous cows grains and corn!

      • Now is the best time to frequent the fairs and watch for when the goat and cow people are milking- bring your own gallon jugs and ask for their milk,bring coolers with ice. tell them it is for pigs or your dogs. Otherwise, they will throw it down the drain! I am always shocked at dairy goat breeders with beautiful animals that never drink their own milk! When I was in nursing school I didn;t have time to devote to milking and breeding so my girls took a haitus from that until I was done. I went to the fair nd got my milk from the goat people and froze it.

      • You do know that corn is a grass? While I am sure we would all love to feed our cows a 100% grass fed herd, in the winter most places are unable to grow enough feed to sustain cows.

      • go to claravales website and re-read the section where it explains the diet that they feed their animals. No corn or grain… Dont know where you got that information from.

      • The following is what I read on Organic Pastures websited”we estimate that our cows are getting about 80% pasture feed (grazed, not supplemental fed), 15 % alfalfa and other hay varieties, and 5% rolled corn (this supplemental feed is offered to all milking cows as free choice). The cows will naturally eat any additional feed that their bodies are demanding to maintain healthy body conditions. If the cow is not given enough natural feed, her body condition will become less optimal, her coat will become dull and “shaggy”, and she will become prone to illness and possibility to infection. Everything we feed our cows is always certified organic, whether we grow it on our own farm or buy it from other local farmers.”
        So, I’m not sure what you are referring to.

      • Bless your dear heart for ponying that out!!! I just wrote Claravale to let them know the same thing. I feel cheated. Doesn’t even tell you if it’s GMO corn n grains!:( How sad. So there’s NOTHING. [Redacted] lets you milk a cow to get your own milk. They didn’t answer me when I asked if their milk cows are grass fed. Their meat is from grassfed cows. How unfair. Godspeed

      • Yes we do! We have only Jersey Cows and we do no grains except 2 cups of barley while they are being milk. We are in Fresno area.

  2. There is also a Lassen’s in Thousand Oaks and I believe Simi Valley. I can verify the Thousand Oaks one carries Organic Pastures – the Simi one probably does as well.

  3. Sprouts in Orange, CA carries Organic Pastures and Mother’s market in Santa Ana, CA carries both Organic Pastures and Claravale Dairy.

    • Lassen’s at Bouquet Canyon and Seco Canyon carries Claravale and Organic Pastures, and rumor has it that Sprouts in Valencia does as well.

  5. Do you know if the Henry’s in Temecula carries raw milk? I will try to get down there soon and let you know if you don’t.

      • I called them today because I was looking for the same thing and they said they do carry it. They quoted me a price of $5.99 per gallon.

        • I recently joined a co-op in Modesto for raw milk. He just started (3 months ago I think) and I noticed a new Facebook page a website. It’s $25 to join and then $3 gallon after that. Bring your own container or pay $0.50 for a normal plastic milk jug. Hope it helps.
          The farm is called [redacted].

          • Thanks for your interest in raw milk and desire to help others. We only want to list farms and sources who’ve agreed to be listed. Feel free to tell this source about this site and have them use the link to Add, Update, or Delete a Listing (top of page) and I’ll be glad to put them up.

  6. I just called my local sprouts (on Laguna Blvd in Elk Grove, CA) and they said they also carry the raw and organic dairy products 🙂

  7. I bought Organic Pastures at the Sprouts in Santa Clarita or maybe it was in Valencia. But bought it a few days ago. Made it into great Kefir too!

    • Did you ever find a good spot to buy raw milk? There’s a health food store here that carries it but it’s so pricey and you don’t get very much for it. I’d love to be able to buy a gallon of it at a time.

  8. Nothing in the Bay Area, other than San Francisco? Nothing in the East Bay? I’m surprised, but I guess it depends on the local laws?

  9. Thank you for the useful information. I seem to be suffering from irritable bowel syndrom and I know it is from the milk. All the crap they add to the cow these days! I actually went Vegan for a short time in my 20’s due to the horrific conditions the animals endure on farms. I am looking forward to being returned to good health with out having to drink soy milk. Thanks again. It is refreshing to see such an organization standing up for our god given right to eat and be healthy.

    • You might like to read “The Vegetarian Myth.” I know it made me understand how to support the animals, the farmers and my family better. If you do not do well with raw milk at first, try raw milk kefir or clabbered milk, or yoghurt.

  10. Henry’s (now owned by Sprouts) in Temecula, CA carries Organic Pastures raw milk, although its so pricey! Is everyone paying @ $9 for a half gallon?

    I recently found raw cheese at the Temecula Fresh n Easy, of all places!

  11. Are there any co-ops or local sources of the milk that don’t come out to over $20/gallon? Right now a friend is ordering milk from an Amish farm in Pennsylvania which is $7/gallon + 5 shipping, so is $12/gallon. That is still steep and I’d like to buy local…

    • I just wonder if you buy coffee at restaurants or places like starbucks? Figure out the cost per gallon of that…. My point is this is expensive, and it actually promotes health, and the farmer deserves to make a living. All pasteurized milk is subsidized by government. No raw milk is. They do deserve a living wage. Most raw milk dairies are on the edge of not having any profit at all…. sorry, just my 2 cents worth.

      • There are many many people, like myself, who don’t go to Starbucks or restaurants. Who spend the bulk of their income on healthy food. When you’re poor it would be a reasonable hope to find an less expensive source. I would rather buy direct from a farmer at a higher rate then they sell to the stores for and avoid grocery store mark ups. That’s actually of benefit to me and the farmer. I’m sure nobody feels like farmers don’t deserve a living wage just because they can’t afford the price of raw milk.

  12. Thanks for all the listing it is very helpful.
    Request some help to understand whether boiling raw milk is equivalent to pasteurized milk? Boiling still keeps the butter fat right, so is it Ok to boil? Does boiling remove the good enzymes and bacteria? is boiling raw milk better than pasteurized milk?
    Thanks

    • My guess is boiling raw milk is better than pasteurized, altho that is still pasteurizing it. Why do you want to boil it? I make my boys “hot” chocolate, by warming it only so warm. I stick my finger into the milk as it is warming and don’t let it get so hot i cannot comfortably do so. If i cook with it in soups and such, i put it in last, just before serving.

  13. There is an organic store in Yuba City CA called New Earth that sells organic grass fed free range cow milk.

  14. Mother’s Market in Brea sells Claravale raw goat and jersey dairy milk and Organic Pastures raw milk, kefir, cream, and butter.

  15. Started shopping at this farmer’s market and they carry Claravale raw milk and raw goat’s milk.

  16. On my first visit to this website, I found a delivery of raw milk and cheese to Tracy, CA. But try as I might now, I cannot find it. Any help to find my way back there would be much appreciated!

    • Artesian Health Food Store on Grantline Road in Tracy sells the Organic Pastures Raw Milk, Cream, cheese, butter, Kefir, etc. BUT you must place an order with them and prepay for pick-up on Tuesday’s which is when Organic Pastures delivers to them. They do stock the butter, cheese and sometimes the pasture raised ground beef when it is available. But for the raw milk or cream or kefir (when available) it must be pre-ordered. I am going to let them know that they are not listed in the list above for Tracy, only their Stockton store. Hopefully they will contact webmaster with all their info.

  17. It looks like both brands of raw dairy have been fed corn. Are there any organic, raw dairy products without the cow having been fed corn/gluten? I did get some grass fed raw cheese through uswellnessmeats.com, but they don’t have milk. I would love to get some milk/yogurt/cottage cheese or even just milk and learn how to make my own other raw dairy products? Thank you.

  18. Thankyou for this great information, I am new to this. My ten year old son was just diagnosed with epilepsy, and I have been looking for ways to support his immune system and keep him off medications if possible. Although I’ve never tried raw milk products before, because I was under the false belief that they weren’t very safe, I have seen them many times at Whole Foods. Is there a reason Whole Foods isn’t mentioned on this list?

    • Melissa, Whole Foods no longer stocks raw milk, however many health food stores in California will have it in their dairy case!

      • Whole Foods used to carry it. I still talk with customers who believe they carry it! When i ask them to point it out they show me Strauss, which is organic, mostly, if not all, grass fed, and cream top. But it is NOT Raw. Lunardi’s and Sprouts both carry Organic Pastures (be sure to get it home and transfer it to glass for storage). You can get Claravale delivered to a porch near you from http://www.realfoodbayarea.com. Be sure to read at least one book on raw milk: The Untold Story of Milk, by Ron Schmid, or The Devil in the Milk, by Keith Woodford and Thomas Cowan. There is so much misinformation out there, the only way to get it out of your head is real information.

  19. Both Mollie Stone’s and Piazzas in Palo Alto carry Organic Pastures raw milk and cream; Piazzas carries OP raw butter and cheese as well.

  20. Sprout’s Santee CA 92071 carries Organic Pastures raw milk. I couldn’t find any raw cheese or butter though. We drank the milk today and I was requested “MORE PLEASE,” which never happens! It tastes great! Off to look at the other websites offered by http://www.realmilk.com/real-milk-finder/ to see about getting those other raw products we need to make my boy healthy!!! THANK YOU for providing this website! What a blessing!

  21. In California we do have Claravale and Organic Pastures. In Silicon Valley you can find one of those at Sprouts Market, at Lunardi’s Market, at Country Sun Market in Palo Alto, at the Campbell Farmers Market, and maybe also at the Sunnyvale Farmers Market, or from http://www.realfoodbayarea.com.

  22. Pingback: What we eat? | Sharing is caring :)

  23. We tried so hard to convince the Humboldt County Board of. supervisors to change the local county ordinance against raw milk sales. Guess who fought against us and all the moms?….it was Humboldt Creamery producers and the FDA loving Health Department staff… CA state law assures all citizens of legal access to raw milk. Humboldt did not and will not follow state law , they default to the FDA hatred of raw milk. We gave it our best shot. We will try as a vote of the people next to time the BOS are bought off. Their own Ag advisor will help you grow POT… But raw milk is illegal. Can not make this stuff up!!!

  24. Nature’s Market in Santa Monica, CA, seems to be closed, or at least I couldn’t find it. There is a vegan market now. The one that carries raw milk in Santa Monica is [redacted].

    • Thanks for the information. We have taken them down. Regarding the other location you suggested, please encourage them to contact us and be listed here. We only list vendors/farms, or mention them in comments, if they’ve agreed to be listed here. Too often this site is used by gov’t agencies to find and harass farmers! Thanks for understanding.

    • Thanks for your comment. Please encourage the first location you mentioned to contact us and be listed here. (Lassen’s is also listed under the statewide section) We only list vendors/farms, or mention them in comments, if they’ve agreed to be listed here.

  25. Dino’s Market in Loch Lomond (a few miles north of Cobb) on Rte 175 sells Organic Pastures milk, cream, butter and Landmark raw goat cheese.

  26. Thank you so much for standing for raw milk. It is egregious that law makers can restrict our food choices so much. I have lactose intolerance and didn’t even know it. I thought being bloated and uncomfortable was just the way life was. When I discovered raw milk, I was transformed! Then those who know what’s best for me — NOT — decided I should not have this miracle food anymore. And then Whole Foods caved to the pressure…Now I found a Sprouts near me that carries it. Thank God.

  27. Clark’s Nutritian in Rancho Mirage carries Organic Pastures raw milk, cream, butter and kefir. The cream is so good that I drink it right out of the container.

  28. Placerville, CA: Noah’s Ark Natural Foods has turned Co-op!
    The name is now Placerville Natural Foods Co-op
    same address and phone number.

    Thanks for your website, found you through Dr. Mercola’s eNewsletter.

  29. Hey all! I am so ready to try raw fresh milk!
    We live about 10 minutes away from Sprouts located in Granada Hills, CA. I may call there tomorrow to find out if they also carry raw milk, or go there myself and check it out.
    If anyone who lives in the San Fernando Valley know where else I can find raw milk at, please let me know! I will also check the Whole Foods stores in my area to see if they have raw milk. From what I know, and have seen, the Whole Foods in Tarzana, CA carries raw whole milk cheese. I will have to find out exactly what company the raw cheese is from and I can report back to you all.

    This is great! Thank you so much for the list! I am excited! 🙂

  30. We are a health food store located in Tracy. We sell Organic Pasture’s Raw Milk.
    You can confirm with them. Our location is 2251 W Grant Line Rd. Tracy CA 95377
    209-836-0190. Please add us to the list.
    Thank You,

  32. Sprouts Laguna Niguel carries Organic Pastures products. Whole Foods carries a non homogenized but pasteurized brand. I would like to see OP in glass.

  33. You can get Organic Pastures Raw Milk in Visalia, CA every Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market at Mooney and Cauldwell.

  34. Do you know of any place in Siskiyou County that sells these raw milk, cheese, etc. and or grass fed animals? Thank you for any information.

    • Siskiyou Farms is a farm share that has raw milk for very reasonable prices in Grenada, near Yreka. Kid Creek also has raw milk (Mt. Shasta) but is about 2xs the price. I’ll provide their emails below & they’re listed in the CA list. They both offer benefits for referring people, so reply here if you’ve signed up with either one. They both have great milk!

      Siskiyou: dusty@goatmeats.com
      Kid Creek: kidcreekpastures@gmail.com,

  35. There’s a Nugget Market in West Sacramento that isn’t in your list. Wouldn’t the whole chain carry Organic Pastures or just select stores?

    • It will probably make more sense soon to just list the various chains in CA that sell raw milk in all or most of their stores vs. listing them individually in every location. This list has been built by people telling us when they find a source of raw milk. So it’s been built by people like you telling us “the Nugget Market in West Sacramento carries Organic Pastures and Claravale products” (if that’s true). I would say in a state like California that has raw for retail, it is indeed likely that all outlets of a particular chain carry raw milk.

  36. Sprouts in Dublin carries Organic Pastures raw milk. They don’t carry the raw cream or raw butter anymore but will order it for you. They also carry raw cheeses (mozzarella, cheddar, Swiss and Jack).

  37. Not sure if someone already said this cuz I didn’t read every comment but the Nugget Market in Elk Grove, CA carries a few different raw milks and a lot of other stuff too like cheeses and what not

  38. Does anyone know if the Whole Foods in Pasadena carries raw milk? We get it cheap in rural Massachusetts but need a source while visiting family near L.A.

  39. In Marin County:
    In addition to Good Earth in Fairfax there’s also Andronico’s Market in San Anselmo and Mollie Stones (in both Sausalito and Greenbrae). They carry Claravale and OP.

  40. Nugget Market in Elk Grove, CA (Sacramento County) is where I buy Organic Pastures milk, cream, and sometimes butter… they probably have other raw products as well.

  41. we got organic pasture raw milk from Sprouts. My son-4 yr old and I have nose bleeding, running nose for 1 day. It happened 2 times in the past. We tried because I heard a lot of benefits of raw milk. but it doesn’t work for us. Maybe because cows are corn and grain fed.

    • Hi, I was wondering if you are saying that raw milk GAVE you and your son nose bleeds, or failed to stop your nose bleeds?

      Most people do okay with raw milk from cows that get some corn/grain, while others are especially sensitive and have to look for 100% grass fed. A small amount of non-GMO grain at milking (preferably soaked!) is acceptable to help dairy cows maintain their weight and support milk production; otherwise the cows become quite thin and milk production decreases. Thus, 100% grass-fed milk is typically more expensive.

      Thanks for writing.

    • Just wanted to say that i used to have blood in my snot (sorry) every time i blew my nose, for decades. I remember complaining to my doctor about it in my teens and he said its nothing. Then i recently eliminated grains and legumes and viola it disappeared.
      Not the same as an actively bleeding nose but the source could be from your intestines or gut lining or whatever you’re eating or not eating.

  42. Is there a co-op or some way to get raw milk directly form a farm in or around Temecula? I have peen part of one here in VA but I am moving to Temecula (so excited that raw milk is more available there!) soon and need some help.
    Thank you so much!

  46. I noticed that the top 30% of the state of California was not included. Is this due to lower populations North of Sacramento?

  47. I just moved to California and have found only Organic Pastures and Claravale as the choices for Raw Milk in the stores. The milk seems different then the raw milk I was getting back East; For one, there is no cream on the top of the containers and two, the milk seems more watery here. I read that although raw they are seperating the milk here.
    Are there local farms to purchase direct from – Living in Sacramento?

  48. Just a thanks to realmilk.com for putting this together, it’s really great. I’ll be visiting Arcata next week and raw milk is my main food, I drink about 1 1/2 quarts a day. It looks like Willits is the northernmost place to buy it, so I’ll go up 101 and stock up on the way.

    My take on a small amount of corn in the cow’s feed is that the cow detoxifies it pretty well, milk is still the most nutritious food available. And the farmers have to ensure their herd stays healthy.

    I came up with a theory that is ponderable; it was the boost in nutrition from regular milk consumption when humans settled down some 9,000 years ago that gave rise to written language, arithmetic, and all the advances in our abilities since. Milking a wild yak has always been hard, LOL.

  49. Has anyone tried raw milk after being sensitive and dairy free for most of the or lives? I get congestion and cold symptoms with too much dairy.
    Thank you, just curious if we should try it!

    • Hi Amber

      Different brands of milk, even raw milk, can make a big difference. If you have only tried commercial milk you might be able to tolerate raw milk easily. Any reduced fat milk in the US has to have added vitamins A and D, the vitamins can have allergens and contaminants.

      Many people who have tried to follow the advice of Dr. Ray Peat, who thinks dairy is very good source of nutrition, have been able to use milk by going slow and adjusting to it.

      His article on milk is at

  50. Up until a few years ago I could get it at the Thousand Oaks Whole Foods. Then one day they put up a sign saying they’d no longer carry it because of State law. Now via this site I find out “law” has little to do with it. I looked at the new Whole Foods in Oxnard and they don’t have it either. I will look at Lassens and Sprouts. I wish Trader Joes would get it. Thanks for posting, everyone 🙂

  51. I have been a member of Ocean Beach Peoples Food Co-op in San Diego for 30+ years. I am surprised to not find them listed here as a source for raw milk, yogurt and kefir, both cow and goat. This co-op has been in existence far longer than Jimbos and Sprouts and sells primarily organic non animal ( the exceptions being eggs and dairy) products. I strongly suggest that the list be updated to include them.

  52. I Live In The Antelope Valley (Palmdale & Lancaster Area) In Southern California … I Live In Lancaster Specifically … There Was NO Listing For Our Area … Does Anyone Know If There Is Anything “Close” To Us That Sells Non-GMO Fed Cows Milk, Or Non-GMO Fed Goats Milk … Or The Yogurts & Cheeses From These Same Sources???

    • In Lancaster, ‘The Whole Wheatery’ sells Claravalle Raw milk and Raw Goats Milk as well. You can also get it for pick up from Abundant Harvest Organics CSA, has many drop off’s in the Antelope Valley as well as other areas in Southern CA.

    • On the other hand…..It is worth noting that we are the only animals that drink the milk of a different animal on a routine basis.;-o….. just sayin.

  57. To save time and find raw organic pastured dairy products in CA just use the ZIP code locator found at the Organic Pastures website. http://Www.organicpastures.com there are about 680 stores in CA that carry OPDC organic raw milk and other products. Now…all products are tested for pathogens prior to release from dairy. With new rapid test technologies and use of the milk filters…food safety has never been more certain. It only takes 12 hours and every batch is tested. OPDC is also RAWMI Listed. http://Www.rawmilkinstitue.org

    All OPDC products now have the “Test & Hold” green check mark logo on their labels.

  58. Our OPDC delivery truck drives through Humboldt County while enroute to Del Norte County where raw milk is legal. I guess you could flag the truck down and beg the driver for product,

  61. Hollister, CA – Raw cow milk, ocassionally raw goat milk and raw cream at Bertuccio’s Market. Raw cheese from Organic Valley at Nob Hill.

  62. Ralph’s in Huntington Beach? Yes, Organic Pastures brand (non-homogenized, raw, $9/half gallon, only slightly more for a gallon).
    But two Ralph’s stores just a few miles away on 17th Street in Newport Beach / Costa Mesa didn’t even know what I was talking about. Fortunately, the Mother’s Market on Newport Blvd at 19th Street had plenty.
    The lesson I learned about Ralph’s is to call first.

  71. where are the small farms to where a person can go buy direct? Especially in Northern California in 30 mile radius of Sacramento.
