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. Not sure if some of these are still around. Was looking for ones in Nassau/Suffolk. I realize this list is from 2000, hoping there might be more in Suffolk and Nassau. Contacted the one from suffolk but still waiting for a reply. Anyone else know of additional healthy milk producers in these counties?

    • The page was started in 2000 but the list is as current as it can be. When people go out of business they MAY contact me to remove their listing, or they may not. If one source doesn’t contact you, try another. Sometimes these sources are overwhelmed by demand. Other times they may be getting strange requests that are making them leery and slow to respond to others. If you email and get no response, try calling. Sometimes people change email addresses and don’t tell me, but they have the same phone, or viceversa.

          • Thanks for your suggestion. Please encourage those farms to contact us and be listed here. We only list 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.

      • wondering about [redacted] in Ghent, ny they sell raw milk and [redacted] in Rhinebeck, ny they also sell raw milk

        • Please encourage those farms to contact us and be listed here. We only list 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.

      • This is in the listings for NYS.

        Riverhead (Suffolk County): Chris Wines, 5793 Sound Ave, Riverhead NY 11901, phone: 631-722-4241, email: wines10@hotmail.com. NYS permitted to sell raw milk from 100% grass-fed Jersey cows. Milk is available in half-gallon glass bottles year round. Cows graze outside April-November.

      • Whole Foods has raw milk. There are two locations on LI. I heard the dairy in Riverhead is open and selling raw milk, too.

  2. Suffolk County has the best place!!! Ty Llwyd Farms on Sound Avenue, Northville, NY…631-722-4241…and it’s a great ride out there too. Fresh eggs (delicious) and great vegetables…

      • Completely frustrated with lack of options for Nassau/Suffolk. If anyone can actually verify a service that responds to emails,phone calls and other inquiries, it would be great to know they exist.

        • How about starting a co-op? I noticed that the first two farms offer co-ops.

    • closest to Binghampton would be Muddy River Farm that I know of. I know them personally being involved in the dairy industry as part of Hosking farm. Great folks at Muddy river and great cows. Many of the maternal genetics originated a few years back from Hosking Farm in Hobart, NY.

  3. Went to Ty Llwyd with the kids so they could see where their milk came from. It was the first time we had ever had REAL milk. Chris responds to emails well. Place an order in advance. I’m in Nassau County, It’s too far of a weekly drive. Just received my first delivery from uddermilk.com. Left a cooler out with the payment. Transferred the milk (gallon) to glass bottles and it tastes great. Would love to be able to visit the farms at least once to feel better about feeding it to the kids. So far so good.

  4. Hi. I am in Rochester, NY and looking to purchase raw milk. I contacted one farm on the list and they said I needed to be involved in a cow share in order to obtain milk from their farm? Can anyone help me locate a local farm where I can buy by the gallon each week? Is this legal? Thank You

    • You can go to Yoders Dairy Farm – Medina: Martin Yoder, 2594 Murdock Rd., Medina NY 14103. It will be about an hour drive, but that is about common for most.

      • Great people at Yoders Farm in Medina, NY!! I have been buying from them for at least 4 or 5 years now and have never had a problem with them or the milk. It will be a little bit of a drive from Rochester, but if there are no other options it would be worth the trip. The colder you keep the Raw Milk, the longer it will last. If you can keep it at the SLIGHTLY slushy stage I have learned that it will last MUCH longer. When you are ready for the next gallon, just move it to a place in the refrigerator where the temperature can come up to around 35 or 36 degrees so the ‘slush’ can desolve. Also, make sure that you shake up each gallon at least once or twice a day to keep the cream mixed with the milk, so the cream does not start to stick to the container at the top. Keeping it this cold, I have had it last for up to three weeks. Cold is the key!

    • I strongly recommend Jerry Snyder’s farm in Alfred. It’s a bit of a drive from Rochester, but perhaps worth it. Luckily I lived in Alfred, so I could enjoy his milk every day.

    • Join the cow share program. This is how the farm can sell raw milk to us legally. Cow share programs and Certified Raw Dairies are the only ways in NYS that we can legally purchase/sell raw milk. It is sad that we are not given freedom to buy wholesome food as we want and sad that farmers who produce wholesome food literally put their livelihood at risk to provide it to us. Let us continue supporting our local farmers and thanking them for their hard work. Join the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund. :)

  5. I am moving to Watertown, NY (Ft Drum). My family only can drink Goat’s Milk. Is there a place nearby where can purchase goat milk?

  6. All the links “Click here to read reader feedback on…” are broken and go to a Not Found: The requested URL /real-milk-finder/udder-milk-feedback/ was not found on this server. Would like to know what others are saying about the farmers. Thanks!

  7. I always appreciate this amazing resource. We are traveling to the Albany area and – as usual- my primary concern is ‘how do I find helpful dairy products for my children while away?’ . Turns out there is a dairy 15 minutes from our host home. Thank you realmilk for coming through once again!

  8. Anyone know where to find raw milk near Troy or Albany, NY? The one local farm I’ve found from the list uses GMO grain for their feed and I was looking for grass fed.

  9. Is anyone in the Schenectady/Niskayuna area who would want to do a drive-share to Hoosick Falls to pick up milk? It is an hour drive from Schenectady. I’d like to find a few people to rotate with so we can each go once every month or 2 and get enough for everyone for the week. I don’t see the farm on this list. The farm is called Breese Hollow. It is all grass-fed and I believe organic.

    • I’m trying raw milk from willow marsh farm right now, it seems to be working for me. They’re close to me but i’d like to at least check out & probably get it from something with more natural milk like [redacted]. I have food allergies and milk is among them, i’ve been milk free for the last three years or so. I’m finding that the raw milk is helping against my allergies, to what end i don’t know yet. I live in West Milton and i have a friend in Ballston Spa that might be interested in doing the drive/pick up share idea for more natural milk. Also, i work in niskayuna.

      • Thanks. I’ve redacted the name of the other dairy you mentioned because they are not listed on this site. We try not to mention farms, even in the comments, unless we know they’re cool with that. Being listed here can bring too much demand, or government intrusion, so we have to be cautious. Good luck.

  10. Just wanted to let people know that I have been ordering from uddermilk.com for over two years and am very satisfied. They are extremely reliable; even during our most severe snow storms, they have delivered! (pun intended) I continue to wish them much success.

  11. Buying/selling raw milk in New Jersey is illegal. I am in Bergen county New Jersey and ideally would like to drive less than an hour to get raw milk. That pretty much eliminates PA and eastern Long Island. I guess the best option would be NY state near the NY/NJ border….anyone have any suggestions?.
    Thanks in advance.

  12. I am new to New York, I am wondering if anyone knows of a reliable place to get raw milk and cheese for me and my 15 month old baby? We love in Warsaw, Ny. I asked the locals, however they said they have never heard of raw milk or cheese. I’m trying my best to catch up on the laws if NY, but I’m not familiar with this area. Also does the milk and cheese that is raw need to be certified? What exactly does that mean?

    • I am also near Warsaw and I am interested in trying out raw milk for the first time. I would prefer to not have to drive an hour just to do so.

  13. I’d like to know if there is anyone who is selling milk in the chennago county area around bainbridge milk sold in quart glass bottles. I would greatly appreciate your help thx in advance

    • If you are willing to travel about fifteen minutes east of Bainbridge to Otego we have raw milk for sale. However we do not bottle in glass. Muddy River Dairy, 63 Main Street, Otego, NY

  14. Hi! I am wondering if there is anything near me. I am in South Bristol, NY – between Naples no Canandaigua. We have had the hardest time finding anyone. The farm we use to get from (Clifton Springs) is no longer selling to public. Would appreciate anything! Thanks.

  15. I am looking for resources for buying raw goat’s milk within reasonable driving distance from the New Lebanon/Stephentown/Nassua/Chatham area. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. We live in New Lebanon. Willing to drive – possibly – up to an hour away.

  16. Does anyone know of a reliable place thats no more than a 20 minute drive from Albany? I would really love to try raw cows milk!

  17. Hi. I, too, am looking for a source of organic, raw milk on Long Island (I’m in Suffolk County). Is the one in Riverhead organic?

  18. I am looking for organic, grass-fed milk near Albany, NY. It doesn’t need to be raw, since I am making yogurt with it anyway. Does anyone know of a buying club or farmers market or grocery store that carries this? So far the closest thing I’ve found are farms 40 minutes away.

  19. Does anyone know of any farms within a 1 hour radius to Albany that have raw goat milk available? I’m specifically interested in organic and free range. Please let me know if you know of a farm, I’ve been looking everywhere!

  20. Hi I am also looking for grassfed milk, preferably goats milk in Suffolk or Nassau county. Cannot find 1 source. I think there is one farmer but they use grain on and off. Not sure why California is aloud to have it but not NYC!

  21. I’m aware that “717″ is a PA area code….Lancaster Co and surrounding area to be precise. I used to buy my raw milk and some other products from a Miller farm near Strasburg. I wonder if this is the same Miller. I am currently looking for where I can buy raw goat’s milk and other goat products….here in NY….as close to New Lebanon as possible.

  22. That comment was in reply to a comment that came through to me in the mail. I clicked the link and got let to this thread. Odd because the notice about the buyers club with the “717″ area code number doesn’t seem to be here.

  23. Are you allowed in the state of NY to make and sell raw milk ice cream ? As and ice cream shop owner can I purschase raw cream and make ice cream?

  24. I’m wanting raw cow’s milk for cheese making. I live in the troy area. there use to be a NYS certified goat dairy in Grafton about 15 yrs ago . Don’t know if it’s still there. Any raw milk for sale in rennsalear county?
