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. HI! I’m very interested in becoming a member of your co-op to be able to purchase products provided through the fine folks at Miller Farms. I have printed the membership contract, but do not know how to proceed? Where to mail? How much is the annual fees? If you can do so, please let me know where I can get this information so I can get started! I love Sally Fallon’s ‘Nourishing Traditions’! I try to make my own products, but can’t always find the products I nees. Luckily I have found you guys thru the ‘sources’ in the back of the book and would love your help! Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Cindy

    • Hello, I do not find a “Miller Farms” on the North Carolina page. There is a Miller Farms on the Texas page. Regardless, you should contact the farmer directly, not via this website. This site provides information about raw milk and listings of farms, clubs, and stores where you can get raw milk. Whatever info is listed here is all I have.

      • This farm also sells at the Poplar Grove farmer’s market – Hampstead (Wilmington area): Nature’s Way Farm, Tina Moller, 115 Crystal Ct., phone: 910-270-3036, email: tnaturesway@aol.com, web: natureswayfarmandseafood.com. Alpine dairy goats, small herd has pasture and lespedeza hay. Small licensed farmstead has a variety of goat cheeses, and raw milk for animal use. Kids for sale in spring, goat milk soaps.

    • Ditto! I know that there is a store in Myrtle Beach that has it. Anyone know of anyone who delivers to the Wilmington or Jacksonville area?

  2. live in Murphy North Carolina the most western town in this state also very close to Young Harris Georgia or Blairsville Georgia is there anywhere around here to purchase whole milk and whole milk products Asheville is over two and a half hours away from us thanks so much Ted Wade

    • Ted, I also live in Murphy. We buy our milk from Mountain Valley Farm in Ellijay, Ga. It’s the closest place we’ve found.

  3. Hi, I am would like to know if there are any milk farmers in my area that sell raw milk? Davidson,Kannapolis, concord NC
    Thank you

  4. I would love to find out if it is possible to have a drop-off point in Halifax NC.I know of many people whom would join if we had a drop off here.How easy would it be to have one set-up?

      • Eat Wild . com might be another website that could help you or anyone else find pastured eggs, cows, pork. (one of our local farms Brasstown Meats – I bought pork from them at a butcher we have in Asheville called The Chop Shop and they were fantastic – nothing like the tasteless pieces of cardboard you buy in the grocery store.) Contact the farmers to ask about non-GMO feed if they grain feed (unless you’re allergic to corn, soy and wheat or any other grain they would use then you just want the ‘pasture raised and pasture finished’ otherwise you might see ‘pasture raised and grain finished’.) I’ve contacted farmers in my area of Asheville & one of them said they’re trying to switch over to non-GMO feed for their chickens and hogs so don’t just read something & say ‘Well, that’s it.’ Contact them through Facebook or call them!

  5. Does anyone know of the closest farm that I can buy grassed Non GMO grain fed raw cow milk or grassfed non GMO beef/chickens near Murphy Nc? I’m open to Ga, or Tn. It seems everything is over an hour away and I’m hoping to find a closer farm if possible. Thanks.

  6. I will be visiting the Little Switzerland area on Monday and am interested in seeing a working farm…can we visit Bakersville? Anyone have any suggestions on farms in that area?

  7. I am also wondering if there is a way to buy raw milk in Hickory, NC? I had been driving to Fort Mill, SC but am no longer able to justify the overall expense of driving 4 hours round trip.

  8. Mike, we are in Hayesville. Thank you so much for the tip on the store in Elijay !!
    I have asked everyone, where to get raw milk, I have searched online, nothing !
    Eek, I am so excited to finally know where to find it !!
    Thank You !!

  9. Contemplating who has the money and motive to buy the politicians who are making and enforcing these unconstitutional laws against raw milk. The answer is clear to me. Pharmaceutical companies. They make expensive drugs to treat the symptoms of diseases that are caused by floral deficits in our bowels. They also sell pro-biotic supplements that are mostly the same “bugs” found in raw milk (species of Bacillus and some lactates). Any campaign to reform the laws needs to publicly attack the the pharmaceutical companies and follow the money trail from these corporations to the politicians who are breaking with their constitutional obligations to protect the “inalienable rights” of the citizens. Note that these same pharmaceutical companies are paying kickbacks to the doctors who prescribe their expensive drugs.

    • As much as I don’t like the government in my business, you really need to study the history of milk and the diseases that it used to carry.. If not for pasteurization, many many millions of people would have been killed by these diseases(also, if the milk crosses a state line, then the federal government does have authority). Which is why the law was passed. Of course most of those diseases have been wiped out in cows now, so the need for the stringent rules is basically gone. But that doesn’t change the fact of what things used to be like.

      • We have a number of articles on this site about the history of milk and the history of the push for pasteurization. It is true there are diseases cows can have that are dangerous for humans, however, most of the risk came during the late 19th and early 20th centuries when cities were expanding and dairies were placed in the cities or on the outskirts and the cows were in crowded, filthy conditions. They were standing in their excrement, and fed inappropriate feed, including spent mash from distilleries (the dairies were often located next to the distilleries to take advantage of this waste product). Sick cows led to dangerous milk. Medical authorities agreed on the need for pasteurization for THIS type of milk, at least until it was better understood why the milk was making people sick (especially infants who sometimes died from this infected milk). “Certified raw milk” was considered the superior choice for health and nutrition. The later push for universal pasteurization fed on FEARS of illness, but the real reason the emerging large, consolidated milk processors wanted this was because it was cheaper for them. They could crowd and stress the cows and overbreed them to produce enormous quantities of milk, and then just pasteurize it to “ensure” people wouldn’t get sick. But that doesn’t mean that kind of milk was health promoting. (And pasteurization also didn’t “ensure” it was safe, because there have been a number of outbreaks of foodborne illness from pasteurized milk over the years.)

        There is still a need for stringent rules about how milk is produced. On this site we also talk about how to ensure safe, clean raw milk. The Raw Milk Institute (RAWMI) has also been established to provide guidance and standards for raw milk dairies. Cows should be tested for the various diseases such as tuberculosis, Johne’s, and others. Milking should be done with care, including cleaning the udder prior, milking directly into stainless steel containers, and chilling the milk immediately. (There is more to it; these are the broad strokes.) Properly handled raw milk from properly raised cows is extremely safe. CDC data shows that all milk, raw or pasteurized, is less likely to be a vector for foodborne illness than many common foods like raw produce and deli meats, and that raw milk is safer than pasteurized. We provide analysis of the CDC data and others studies under the “Key Document” link in the left navigation.

  10. I visit the Wendell area about 2 times a year. Is there a location you know of that I could purchase products on an “as needed” basis?

  11. Everyone should check out a very popular internet “list” for help in this area…I think it’s named after some guy :)

  12. Living in the outer bamks of north carolina. Is there anyone in currituck or nearby area interested in doing some sort of sharing program for raw milk? Wanchese? Manteo? Would love to get together with someone in Wanchese! Where i work. How do the drop programs work? Anyone in Suffolk who would drop weekly in obx if there were enough “members”? Do i need to buy my own cow? What is the going price for a healthy jersey cow?

  13. Upcoming move to Fayetteville area — please advise good, whole food sourcing in the area, raw milk, local/grassfed/organic/humanely raised animals, etc. Thank you!
