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.

    • did you find any local raw milk? I.E.,in Vermillion or closer than Yankton? I have a source in [redacted],SD!
      sat.(s) 11:00-12:00 AM $6.00/gal. but then there’s gas & time
      my tel. # (806) 282-9508

  1. I’m not sure if you have a farmer’s market, but [redacted] comes to [redacted] (from [redacted]) and he sells raw milk. Ask around at your local farmers’ market. Good luck. 🙂

  2. I am searching for somewhere to purchase raw milk for my family and I. Having grown up in Wisconsin on raw milk I truly prefer it. We live in the Rapid City area of South Dakota. Thank you very much

  3. I’m interested in a source for raw, Non GMO grass fed cow’s 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?

  4. I live in Watertown SD and would like to obtain raw milk from “happy cows” (raw, Non GMO grass fed cow’s). I’m a shut-in w/disabling heart condition, so is delivery possible?

    Thanks.

  5. I am looking for raw, non-gmo, grass fed cow’s milk in the Brookings, SD area. Anyone have any suggestions? Thank You! 🙂

  6. I am looking for raw, non-gmo, grass fed cow’s milk in the Brookings, SD area. Anyone have any suggestions? 🙂

    • There is a farm just east of town. They sell produce at the farmers market in Brookings. Farm is just across from Swiftel. Not sure I can give names.

  7. I’m looking for a local source for grass fed butter, I’d be willing to buy bulk if possible. I live in Parker but currently working up in Big Stone and travel back and forth every week. I’d be happy to work something out with anyone in between. Thanks, Shawn

  8. I am looking for a raw goats milk source in the Sioux Falls, Brandon area that is grain free. Also, someone who sells free range eggs. Thanks so much!

  9. Shawn,
    It looks as though Parker is just a few miles east of Marion. Fifth Generation Farm / Happing Grazing has a Marion address: south of highway 44 and a couple miles west of highway 17. They don’t specifically say that they sell butter, but they are organic, grass-based Jersey milkers, according to the Real Milk Finder on this website. (Icon at very top of page.) There are 3 or four of us in Watertown that would be delighted if you could bring milk up here when you come through town. Speaking for myself, I will help cover your travel expenses to make it worthwhile for you to get & transport the milk. I’m guessing that others would also. I’d be willing to meet you at a convenient spot near highway 29 at the time of your choosing. Please e-mail me directly if you are interested. Thank you !
    Pat S.

        • We are located in Aberdeen, SD. However, due to current regulations in the state, we are no longer able to sell raw milk. We have moved to a herd sharing system as the state still allows that. With this set up, you buy a share in the goat and pay a monthly care fee. You essentially own part of the goat and are therefore entitled to the milk. We do not have any shares currently available, but if you would like, I can inform you when any open up.

  10. Hello! I am looking for raw milk in Vermillion, SD. I am hoping to find a source that is within 20 miles or delivers. Has anyone found a source closer than Yankton for the Vermillion area? Thanks!

  11. Black Hills Milk is no longer in the business of selling milk since the dairy and egg board did everything possible to make it too expensive for them to make the changes necessary (small changes, nothing to do with the goodness and cleanlines of their milk). This was simply a “shut ’em down” tactic by our State and I hope they are happy with the results. Now I can’t find raw milk anywhere in the western half of SD. I’m sure there are some producers out here, but they are all keeping silent. I can get raw goat milk from Lila, which I adore, but I also would like to have raw cow milk in order to make butter and yogurt and cream cheese and cottage cheese, etc.

    If anyone knows of a source under the radar could someone please contact me at 6 oh 5 two oh 9 six one 3 five or at rushmoregal53@hotmail dot com

    I would much appreciate the information and help. My DH and I grew up drinking raw milk and cannot stand store milk, so if we can’t find raw milk we will go without. I refuse to buy almond or rice milk in a carton (that stuff is actually not healthy, no matter how they advertise it) and I’d rather not use milk if I can’t get raw. As I said I can use the goat milk for some things, and I think Lila so much for her efforts to produce and sell it.

    • Do you mean to tell me that no one in western SD is selling raw milk (cow)? We are unable to locate anyone. We HAD someone a while back but they are now refusing to return our phone calls and emails. Thanks guys, you’re a big help. I’ve asked them if they could recommend someone else if they don’t want to sell to us, but they remain mute. I think they are actually scared of the stupid dairy and egg board people, can you believe that? It’s a LEGAL OPERATION and yet people are running scared of a few do-do’s who claim they’d rather drink gasoline than milk. That guy should be fired for saying those words in the first place, and in the second place it makes no sense for him to speak that way considering the CDC numbers don’t prove out his message (providing you believe ANYTHING coming from the CDC these days, since the MMR/autism fiasco has broken loose on the internet. You won’t hear a word about it until they have no choice, on the MSM. Once it gets to be a huge story, you might hear a bleep here and there because they’ll have no choice. I don’t listen to MSM news sources but that’s my bet on their activities.

      Please, anyone in western SD who sells raw cow milk – – – people are literally begging for the stuff.

      • Deb,
        Did you ever get a contact for buying raw cows milk in Western South Dakota?
        I would really love to have a source for it. I’m milk starved! Anyone? If you could call or email me, I would be grateful.

        • We have been buying goat milk from the local certified seller, instead of cow milk which we still can’t find. The goat milk, however, will be in short supply until the middle to end of February or so, because her ewes need it for their babies.

          Someone said the supplier is trying to make it available to young mom’s who need it for baby formula, etc., but the general public will have to wait a while yet.

          Her goat milk is excellent and never tastes “goaty” at all. She is located in Custer, SD and when she has milk available, she delivers to RC, Sturgis, Spearfish and I don’t know where else. But you have to get on her list by contacting her through email (which I think is supplied on this site). I don’t know her email addy right off hand, but she is certified so she probably also has a web site. Her name is Lila Streff. I think it’s called Black Hills Goat Milk or something. That’s all I know. And yes, there are a couple of raw cow milk farmers but I hesitate to share that information even on the telephone. They are staying under the radar if possible because they do not want to be shut down and cannot afford the new rules and regulations imposed by the State – which I thought our Governor was going to change. Empty promises apparently.

          • I should also mention that we do not buy raw cow milk right now because those who do have it available do not have any extra right now.

        • @ Robyn: If you are still looking for cow milk in SD, the lady from [redacted] now has 2 guernsey cows and sells what she has extra. Usually she is at [redacted] on Friday afternoons between 3:30 and 5:30, but you need to contact her ahead of time so she can let you know if she has extra for that week or not. You can search online at [redacted] for her contact information (I don’t remember it right off the top of my head). Her name is [redacted] and she is from [redacted]. She sells 1/2 gallons for $5 each. There is a $3 deposit for the bottles. If you bring them back (clean) the following week, you don’t pay another deposit, of course. Hope that is helpful.

          • Thanks for your helpfulness! We don’t list any farms that haven’t agreed to be listed so I’ve edited out the specifics here. Please encourage her to consider being listed on this site. However, it sounds like she may be very small yet and not ready for an increase in demand that this site can bring.

          • Thank you, and yes my DIL informed me that she saw the advert on facebook, so I’ve been buying milk from these folks for a few months already. It’s wonderful! But had my DIL not told me, I likely wouldn’t have known because i’m not on fb, so thanks for posting the info. I appreciate it, as things like real food are getting harder and harder to find.

    • You can make all that you want with goat milk. It will separate if put through a cream separator. You can make butter and also have cream. Goat milk makes the best yogurt and cream cheese, cottage cheese, feta, goat cheese, and much more. Ebay has some nice table top cream separators that work great. I have one.

  12. Hi,
    I live in southwestern Minnesota 90 miles east of Sioux Falls. I am looking for a source of raw goat or cow milk.
    Thanks!
