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 cured 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. Poplar Hill goats are fed GMO’s as well as soy. The may not matter to everyone but to some with sensitivities and health problems, this may be a concern.

    • My son has been on Poplar Hill milk since 4 months. He has had health problems since very soon after starting this milk. Candida, bloated gut, poor sleep patterns, horrible bowel movements. I was devastated when I found out that PH uses GMO’s. My son is now 22 months. We have struggled through these issues for 18 months. Do I believe that this milk is the catalyst for these problems? YES… Since my son does not consume ANY grains or cow dairy. He is on 100% organic fruits and vegetables and 100% grassfed beef and free range no soy chicken.

      Do I have hard evidence? No… I understand that farmers are in an IMPOSSIBLY difficult position right now. Do they pay more for organic non gmo feed and then have to pass on that price to their customers? I say ABSOLUTELY. There is a false system that has Americans believing that food is cheap and there is plenty of it. I have now found a farmer that is Non-GMO, No Soy, No Hormones, No Antibiotics. We have just started to get her milk from her goats and we will see how my son improves. I am absolutely sick that I fed my son SOY AND GMO milk for the first precious months of his life. I wish I would have been warned that they use GMO’s. The heartache, sleepless nights, and pain that might have been spared is immeasurable.

      • I shared your comment with Sally Fallon Morell, who replied, “Thanks for your letter and keep us posted on your son. It could be the soy being fed the goats, not because it is GMO. Remember that Real Milk is mostly grass fed, with the animals getting little if any grain.”

        • Thank you WebMaster for sharing that with Sally. It irritates me to no end that PH does not disclose that they use soy and corn GMO’s. In fact it irritates me that they are listed on this site at all, but that may be my experience talking. At any rate I am now getting all my milks and dairy from Tracy’s Paradise Produce and in the last 72 hours since I picked up the new milk my son has slept 2x as much as he did before and his belly bloat is receding. I do NOT believe this is a coincidence. My son has had more smiley hours since Friday than sad or cranky hours. IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

          • Hi Joy, Since the move off the old farm (named Paradise Pines for many years) I changed the farm name.

            Also, do you think it is the goat milk or the colostrum that helped more? I have not caught up enough to get more colostrum saved yet but hope to soon. I had 28 does kid in about a week. lol

          • Hello, I live in Minneapolis, Mn. and am having one heck of a time trying to find real organic and raw milk! There are several health issues within my family- depression, overweight (even though I eat “healthy”) etc. I am desperately trying to find sources around my neck of the woods that will benefit my family as well as the farmer. Can anyone help me with finding this please..

        • GMO’s are a huge contributor to allergies. I know several people who are allergic to soy when it’s GMO, but not when it’s organic or fermented, like in soy sauce. I wished I would have known more about this Goat Milk when my daughter drank it her 1st year, since I cannot produce my own milk. Anyway. Since soy is a pseudo estrogen, it is not recommended, organic or not…again, unless it is fermented, like in soy sauce or tofu.

  2. Any farmers in the metro area, or the south sub-burbs with raw cows or goat milk? I live in Shakopee, MN. And if there is a delivery service that would be great!

    • It is my understanding MN law requires sales to be on the farm, and the consumer must bring their own container. I think we should politically try to overturn this and I would love for raw milk to be allowed at Farmer’s Markets, Home delivery Service (Like Schwanns) and it would be great to have it in grocery stores like California is allowed to do. Let’s tell our Senators and Representatives.

    • any delivery services that are around the twin cities are pretty underground right now. chances are the only way you’ll find out about a farmer who offers raw milk delivery will be by cautious word of mouth, unfortunately.

      • Many of us have memberships or buying clubs. Contact the farmers above and see what they have to offer. Or if you want direct contact, leave a way to get a hold of you! lol Also, ask what the animals are being fed and do a little research please. Nothing makes us more uneasy when someone shows up with used milk jugs that have only been rinsed out. Tracy

          • Tracy,

            How do you handle Paypal? What is your account so we can pay you that way?

        • Hi Tracy,

          We’re still waiting to hear from you regarding using Paypal to pay you for the milk in advance. I am contacting you on this site because I haven’t heard from you via telephone nor my other email. Since you recently responded to another comment I made to the gal that moderates this website (not you), I thought I might as well contact you here, and send this again.

          How do you handle Paypal? What is your account so we can pay you that way, in advance? We are interested in getting the pre-bottled raw milk (from your farm) that we can pickup in Minneapolis from people who have a club where we can pick it up after placing our order with you.

    • Closest I think is in Carlton. The Hedquist Family Farm. Their address is 2353 Bromfield Rd, Carlton, MN 55718. The phone number I have for them is disconnected but I will drive there tomorrow and knock on their door. I will try to support them with buying anything they have for sale. I’ll let you know when I get back from my trip.

      • I did go there, and spoke to someone living at that location. They said the dairy farm moved out of state. I had called the phone numbers and they were disconnected. I thought I would stop by just to be sure. And they moved the farm out of state. Maybe they moved to California?

          • Hi Tracy,

            I’m still waiting to hear back from you regarding getting involved in the raw milk pickup in Minneapolis. I sent you an email, called several times and still, no response.

            You mentioned setting up a Paypal account to pay you. Is it under the name of your farm?

            Thanks.

            Best,

            Cao Biz

          • Hi Tracy,
            I’m having trouble sending an email to you at oldfashionedtraditions.com, and can’t get through. I haven’t used Microsoft Outlook in years because of security reasons, so don’t have it set up at all. I filled out and uploaded the membership forms with the email I was about to send you. I have had quite a bit of computer work lately, and have been very busy offline. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. We’ll have to skip this week’s order until I get the PayPal account set up and info from you regarding payment to Old Fashioned Traditions via your PayPal account. Or, we could mail a check. Whatever works best for you is fine with us.

            We would like to also order 6 gallons raw milk (for now) at $7.00 per gallon, and pay for $25.00 one year membership. The total cost will be $25.00 + $42.00 =$67.00. We await to hear from you regarding the PayPal instructions, as I don’t remember getting any info from you about that. I have never used PayPal before, relying only on credit cards for Internet purchases. I almost completed my set up to use the PayPal account and then realized I need to set it up with my other bank account. That will have to wait until Monday.

            We would like to be considered for the drop-off site in S. Minneapolis, as you previously mentioned over the phone when we spoke a while back.

            Thank you.

            Warm regards,
            Christin

        • Christin, Cao Biz, or Chris Tin, you have been contacted many times. No contract back, nothing will be heading down to you. That is not a foreign concept with how the various farms work with drop sites and such. It was explained, it was mailed. Tracy

  3. I live near La Crescent MN, and would LOVE to find someone to supply me with raw NON-GMO milk (Cow or goat, doesn’t matter). I have a child who is really allergic to GMO’s and has a hard time with pasteurized milk – she gets sick.

    Thanks

  4. We live in Dakota County Lakeville/Farmington area and I’m looking to buy raw milk. I have digestive issues and can’t tolerate regular/organic milk. I drank raw goats milk growing up and had no issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. I am looking for dairy around the Fargo/Moorhead area. Cow or Goats milk- or both! Must be grass fed- or very limited grain fed. Also- NOsoy/NON-GMO.

    Needing 3-4 gallons every 2 weeks, minimal. Sometimes double or triple that amount for butter and cheese making.

    Also looking for Grassfed beef- half or quarters.

    • Did you contact us recently? If not, could you either call us or email us? We have a new customer coming from your area and we’d love to pass your info to her. Maybe you two could ride-share or begin a buying club.

      We also sell grass-fed beef and pastured pork… if interested.

      Good luck

      • HI! I’d be interested in a buying club from the Fargo-Moorhead area for milk- please pass my info on if you can! Or contact me :)
        Thanks!

  6. We live around the Lakeville and Farmington area. Does anyone know of any farmers selling raw milk near us? Thanks in advance!!!

  7. Looking for grass fed raw dairy milk and grass fed eggs (well the chickens would be grass fed ; ). Live in St Paul, MN Anything close? Thanks!

  8. I tried to email the family in Owatonna and it said that it wasn’t a valid email. I did try to leave a message on their blog, so we’ll see if they reply.

  9. Can someone let me know of any dairy farms close to the east metro. We are in St.Paul but I work in Stillwater. The St. Croix Valley area? I am even willing to go into Wisconsin. My daughter is 10 months and she will be on milk soon and I do not want her to drink pasteurized milk. My husband and I don’t drink any milk. But I’m sure we would love the health benefits of real milk!

  10. I live in NE Minneapolis and am looking for a few gallons of raw cow and/or goat milk for cheese-making every other week or so. A soy and gmo-free diet is ideal for me. I would love to know if there’s some kind of pick up spot or buying club closer to the cities. Or possibly someone who would be interested in alternating picking up milk from a dairy near the Twin Cities with me. Here’s my email if you’d like to message me privately: madelodactyl@gmail.com

    Thanks for any help!

      • Hello there,
        I just found a raw milk Amish CSA in Mora. Where do you drive for your milk and how often? I am looking to start a group for driving. Any suggestions? If I am not able to get a group together, may I join yours?

  11. Hello-

    I am in the Minnetonka area and looking for Raw Milk for my family. Is there anywhere near the area I could purchase this?

    Thanks so much!

    • I just toured a farm that sells raw milk CSA in Mora. It is heaven on earth up there!! I am looking for a group of folks that would take turns driving there for milk. Email me at alexandrasakurets@yahoo.com. They also have a vegetable CSA that will deliver.

    • Dropsite in Hopkins with openings for milk. Jersey cows or goats. Filled weekly. Also openings in Burnsville and Bloomington if those are close.

      • Thanks for your willingness to help others find raw milk! Please ask your farmer to contact us to be listed on this site. We want to make sure any farms listed here or even mentioned in comments are okay with it, because government organizations use this site to find and harass raw milk farmers. Thank you!

  12. Hey I am in downtown Minneapolis and really interested in raw whole milk and products! Open to trying goat or cow! Thank you!

  13. I am trying to find raw milk and also cream that is NOT ultra pasteurized near Owatonna but am having difficulty. The site listed above for Owatonna does not exist. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    • Not raw but isn’t Cedar Summit close to you? They have lightly pasteurized (still dead) milk but better than store. The closest I get to you is Burnsville.

  14. Just moved to Duluth and looking for a raw milk/cheese provider. I don’t see anyone on the list who’s close, though I’ll check it again. Anyone? Or, if there isn’t any in our area, maybe I should look into frozen. Is that even an option?

  15. I’m interested in a source for raw, Non GMO grass fed milk, cheese & butter. Also would be happy to find a source for free range chicken eggs that are high in omega-3s (not fed GMO) and free range chickens (frozen or fresh.) Possibly free range, non GMO fed pork. Looking for a source in SW Minnesota or near Sioux Falls, SD. Does anyone know of sources for these in either of these areas?

  16. I just toured a farm that sells raw milk CSA in Mora MN. I am looking for a group of people to take turns driving to the farm for milk. We live in Maple Grove, please reply if interested if you live in Plymouth, Maple Grove, Brooklyn Park area. Email me at alexandrasakurets@yahoo.com.

  18. Tracy,

    I am looking for a raw milk supplier for my sister up in Coon Rapids. I saw that you had a drop site maybe coming soon there.

    Her kids have benefited so much from drinking the raw milk from our farm, but since we milk only for our own consumption and cheese making there isn’t any for her to take home when she visits.

    If you do have a contact or drop established, I would love that information.

    Thanks,
    Peggy

  19. The law says that raw milk products can occasionally be PICKED up from the farm where they were produced. Only. The drop site arrangements have the potential to create havoc for those of us following the law:( why is everyone being so vocal!!

  20. I am interested in purchasing raw milk & cheese, organic fruits & veggies and organic meat. I live in Blaine, MN and I am willing to drive around 30 miles, if necessary, to purchase. My phone is 662-275-4355 (I’ve moved up here from MS) or you can email me at lksbolanos@hotmail.com.

    Thank you, Linda

  21. I am interested in finding a farm or drop site to pick up raw milk (goat or cow). I live in Rosemount – willing to drive as far as necessary. Thanks!

  22. I’m looking for raw milk near Buffalo, Delano, Monticello, Rockford, anywhere in Wright county, or the Plymouth area. Email me if you know of anyone that sells it. Thanks!

    • I am also in Buffalo and looking for a local source of raw non GMO no antibiotic steroid etc milk (or organic) any leads on such. Will be needing 6 gallons or slightly more per week. Going on a raw milk diet (hopefully if I can find source) to heal immune issues. Please let me know if you know of any sellers.

  23. Hello Alexandra, can you please email me the address or phone # for that Amis farm in mora,
    I am also looking grass fed NON GMO raw cows milk and goat cheese. Right now I am using
    Cedar farm grass fed cows milk for my kids and it’s expensive and my daughter has ongoing
    Stomach aches, I grew up drinking raw milk and I cant find here in mpls Mn.
    n_farah@msn.com or call me @612-267-2005 thanks.

  24. Have extra milk! I have one cow due any day, another due in about a month (and more producing). Then they are spaced about every two months apart. Goats are producing year round as well. Also have a flock of milking sheep. Dropsites or farm pick up available. Also make some cheeses, have cream, yogurt, host cheese making classes, etc. Email for more info: oldfashionedtraditions@gmail.com

    Tracy

    • Hi Vanessa,

      Can you direct me to your website (if you have one)? If not, can you tell me ballpark prices you have for raw, non-GMO milk? I’d like to start making cheese.

  26. Looking for organic dairy farmer near Detroit Lakes, MN or even Fargo/Moorhead. Would be very interested in any co-op type organizations for other wholesome REAL food as well.
    Thanks

  27. Looking for raw cow milk/butter in Grand Rapids area, willing to cover transportation expenses but do not have readily accessible transport myself.

    You may call me anytime after 4pm during weekdays at 218-259-6909 for any information regarding a dairy farm contact in my area.. If for whatever reason you do not get an answer, leave a text message as I have no voicemail, I will get back to you as soon as I find it.

  29. Hoping to get some raw goat milk. We grew up drinking goat milk and never realized I was lactose intolerant until I had cow milk. Looking to get back to goat milk but having the hardest time finding a source near the Minneapolis area. I live in St. Paul and work in Eden Prairie so any places in between would be fine. An earlier post indicated a goat milk drop off in Hopkins, is this still current? I would really appreciate it if anyone can contact me with information on how to get fresh goat milk.

    Thank you,
    Hiep

  31. This is one of the most ridiculous propaganda/association that I have ever seen. This, along with the non-evidence based beliefs of not vaccinating children nowadays makes me want to say to the World that why the hell, then, all these centuries of research and clinical studies tried to achieve when clusters of people with no evidence are trying to destroy all those years of study, control and eradication of various diseases. It seems to me that humanity in some aspects is going retrograde on evolution. To come with propaganda you need evidence. It is quite serious to misinform people. Raw milk is a source of serious zoonoses. All the nutrients, and most of the enzymes found in pasteurized milk are those who your body needs.

    • Pasteurized milk does not contain enzymes if properly pasteurized; the test for whether milk has been pasteurized is whether its enzymes are intact (heat inactivated them). Pasteurized milk does have a variety of nutrients but many of them are altered, reduced, or destroyed by pasteurization. See our Key Documents page for a variety of articles explaining the science behind our claims of superior nutrition and safety for properly handled raw milk and analysis of position papers by CDC, FDA, and other agencies disparaging raw milk. The CDC’s data shows that dairy products, raw or pasteurized, are extremely low risk, more so that any other category of food for which they track foodborne illness.

        • The inflammatory remarks by CCV were also laced with profanity. Unacceptable behavior, even if a planted instigator. Such a gracious response from the webmaster shows real class!

      • Because of such research, raw milk is now handled in the sanitary fashion it should have been back in the day when pasurizing was the only way to combat germs that people did not relized existed. This is now the 21 century and through such research more precausions are made in the preparation of raw milk making it safe to drink without worry.

    • CCV,

      We’ve been primarily vegan the last several years, and are now getting back into raw milk. We used go to two or three farms (cow and goat) on a regular basis, throughout the years. We loved getting the milk and had absolutely no problems at all. We picked them up at the farms with our sterilized bottles, and put the milk in coolers that contained ice, for the drive home. We never had any problems with raw milk, and my three youngest children were not vaccinated. All my children had been breastfed on demand, and their immune systems were much healthier than mine (I was given infant formula and only breastfed for three months). When my kids were in elementary school, there was a big measles scare. None of them ever caught measles. Yet, one of my sons got one mump. I hadn’t heard of mumps in decades. Interestingly, my husband and I both had one mump when we were young, even though we both were vaccinated. Where did it come from? Who knows? Pasteurized milk from school? (Maybe.) I gave my son homeopathic Sulfur (50c), changed his diet to raw fruit and veggie juice vegan, and his mild fever and mump went away in two days. That was the end of it.

  32. Laura, I do not have any way to contact you. My email is listed in several of the posts I have left. You need to contact me through my email to set anything up.

    Tracy

  33. Cao Biz, Chris Tin, or Christin, whichever name you are using, I have contacted you via email and you have not sent the signed contract back. Those were sent to you again on April 2nd with a note that if you wanted to get on the droplist I needed the membership form back as well as your order. That was also told to you on the phone when I called you last month, membership is required and the paperwork needs to be sent back. Tracy

    • Hi Tracy~ Again, I got the paperwork and it is ready to go. Having trouble with your email as I don’t use Microsoft Outlook, only Yahoo and Gmail. Can I copy and paste it in like I did before? Thanks!

  34. Cao Biz, Chris Tin, or Christin, whichever name you are using, I have contacted you via email and you have not sent the signed contract back. Tracy

  35. I’ve only ever drank raw cows milk but would be willing to try goats milk. I live in Red Wing. Any drop sites around here?
    Thanks,
    Duane

  36. You were contracted through email I also left a response to one of your other messages left on this site Stating that you had been sent the information. At this point I do not feel as though you would be a good match for my farm. You have been rather boisterous on this site And most of us keep our dealings as quiet as possible in the current state of affairs with this food at the moment. Thank you for your interest.

  37. Hi. I’m moving out to Silver Bay, MN. Just wondering if there might be anyone supplying raw milk products (both cow and goat are good) out that way some place.

    Thanks

  38. I’m not sure if he means there is a branch of Seneca that is in his area …? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seneca_Foodshttp://www.thefreelibrary.com/GREEN+GIANT+ENTERS+ALLIANCE+WITH+SENECA+FOODS+FOR+PROCESSING+OF+ITS…-a015959996 … “… “Green Giant is a healthy and growing business, and the actions we are announcing today will continue to strengthen our position in the market,” said Paul S. Walsh, CEO of Pillsbury. “More than ever we are in a position to concentrate on product development and marketing and let our processing partners do what they do best. We will also enhance our status as the industry’s low-cost producer.
    “We are committed to a direction that will make Green Giant more market-driven and a bigger contributor to shareholder value. Green Giant is a great brand that we can make even greater,” he said.
    Kraig H. Kayser, President and CEO of Seneca Foods, commented: “We are enthusiastic about this alliance and about our involvement with Green Giant. The quality of the company and its people is outstanding.”
    The production facilities that will close are located in Ripon, Wisc.; Beaver Dam. Wisc.; Hoopeston, Ill.; and LeSueur, Minn. Although production in LeSueur will end, Green Giant will maintain facilities dedicated to biotechnology, variety seed development, and agricultural services in that community and in the company’s major technical facility in Minneapolis. Another facility in Belvidere, Ill., will cease seasonal production only.
    Facilities being sold to Seneca are located in Mayville, Wisc.; Dayton, Wash.; Buhl, Id.; Glencoe, Minn.; Montgomery, Minn.; and Blue Earth, Minn. Agricultural operations based in Ripon and Belvidere will also be transferred to Seneca.
    Seneca plans to invest approximately $50 million in integrating facilities, and will add a Green Giant executive to its Board of Directors.
    In order to maintain brand integrity, stringent requirements have been written into the agreement. These include policies for the maintenance of Green Giant quality standards; and guidelines governing the use of proprietary variety seeds, as well as production technology.
    At the close of this agreement, Green Giant will operate 9 facilities, down from a current base of 19. …”
