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.

West Jordan

  • Drake Family Farm, Jeanette and Ron Drake, West Jordan UT, phone: 801-255-6455, web: drakefamilyfarms.com. Raw goat milk. Reader Comments: A reader notes that this dairy sells raw milk although their website states they do not recommend it, and they make purchasers sign a waiver. Farmer’s response: “It is very difficult and challenging to produce and sell raw milk because of the current legal climate in our state and country. It would be impossible for us to stay in business selling only raw milk. We have yet to make a profit and hope this will be the year we finally do. Our biggest selling product is raw goat milk, but it would not be prudent to make this our only product. Just a few changes in the law or FDA regulations could immediately put us out of business. We must have other products and cater to other customers also. It is very rewarding to provide a healthy product that has been of such great benefit to our customers. I believe our raw goat milk has saved lives and improved the quality of life for entire families. But we hope to be able to earn enough money to stay in business and we need other streams of income besides raw milk in order to do this. Another reason that our website seems to promote pasteurized products is because we want to make our milk inspector happy and let him know that we are educated about pasteurization. We want to have a good relationship with him and with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food, not an adversarial one. Thank you to the Weston Price Foundation for their education efforts and for promoting our raw goat milk.”

        • I have been trying to find someone to set up even more than the Google maps; I’d like the ability for farmers to fill out a form to request to be listed, that goes into an approval queue for me to review and approve. They’d have the ability to edit (also moderated) and remove (no moderation needed) their own farm’s information. They would be required to provide address data for a mapping system.

          I am not certain all farms would do it. Some are loathe to give their exact addresses on this site. They prefer potential customers to contact them so they can feel them out. Many farmers have been raided by government agents who get information from this site so I understand their reticence. Handling those is tough…do we pin a town name but indicate somehow that it isn’t the exact address and they need to contact the farmer?

          Etc…it is more than mapping the listings.

          • Hi, I am a raw milk-drinking web developer. The Google Maps API is super flexible and will allow you to include whatever information you’d like with each location point and will allow you to restrict the zoom to whatever boundaries you choose. Obviously some farmers wouldn’t want to show their exact address, and certainly not street view. You would still need to put in an address (latitude and longitude, actually), but if you restrict zoom to more of a zoomed-out view of the city that isn’t detailed enough to show the address and you only include the contact info the farmer wants to provide, I think you could make it work. I think what you have now is great though 🙂

  1. I’m intersted in buying healthy organic foods for the family. I live in Kaysville, UT. where is the least expensive closest and best place for me to buy milk?

    • You can purchase raw milk at Realfoods Market in Sugarhouse on Highland Drive. I believe that is the closest location to Kaysville

    • Contact Kathy at 801 292-7574. We have a car pool that picks up raw milk at Real Foods in Sugarhouse every thursday.
      gail

      • Gail,

        I was hoping to get a little more info on the carpool that picks up milk. How does it work? I’ve been searching for a place to buy raw milk. I’m in Kaysville. I would appreciate any information at all. I’m so new to this 🙂

        • Look up Johnny’ s dairy in Ogden. Lots of controversy over campybacter(sp) contamination,but it’s a risk of raw milk. They should be up& running soon. Much closer to Kaysville & better traffic.

  2. I live in Italy and use milkmaps.com to locate raw milk in Italy. I’ve never tried to use it for places in the US (but will go and look now because now I’m curious) but perhaps that is an option for you?

    Thank you for this resource though! I was worried about find raw milk sources in UT when I return to the US in a few months. I’m so relieved to discover that it won’t be a problem!

    • OK, looks like milkmaps.com is only for Italy. Bummer! But I understand that some farmers don’t want to be so easily pinpointed, especially in states where raw milk is prohibited. Ugh. The laws in the US regarding food/food safety are the main reason I’m not looking forward to returning to the US.

  3. WOW.! Just one quick perusal on Google and I found your WEBSITE. My wife was raised on raw milk from Argyle Farms in the Woods Cross, UT area [they were shut down some years ago]. She loved it
    & raised her on flock of 6 kids on it as well.
    We are both in our mid seventies & having health issues. I have
    been told or seen it printed that milk is detrimental to good health
    now days. If so, it probably is because of the damned chemicals that
    most dairy operators use to raise the cow feed.
    Despite its high cost, we may begin to buy & drink raw milk.
    Thanks for your great site.!! That one comment about an
    interactive map to help locate raw milk & other health food products
    seems like a very good idea. Else, may be a brief tutorial on how to use Google maps, etc.

    • The closest place to you in Las Vegas, is St. George. There is a store in St. George called Real Foods Market. It carries raw milk. It also carries pastured eggs, raw cheese, supplements, organic produce etc.

    • Dottie- There is a *secret* group that brings it in to Vegas from Colorado City and from California every week. Google hard enough and you will find it.

  4. I was told that if you have the consumer sign a form saying they know the risks of raw milk that you can sell in Utah. Where would that form be located?

    • The form is in the stores that carry the raw milk. Wherever you would purchase is required to have a form on file before they can sell to you as part of the law and legislation in Utah. Where do you live? Do you know the closest location to you to buy?

    • I have signed the form at the location of where you purchase the raw milk from. But, if you take care to keep the milk cold till you get it home , it should be fine. Just like any thing you buy that needs to be refrigerated, you have to use some common sense. Place it in an ice chest which really helps if you have a ways to go.

      • i am looking for farm where i can purchase raw milk close to spsnish fork in utah county. i am diaabetic and have a plan to heal diabetics and need raw milk if you know of any place please advise. thank you marv broderick.

    • I would love to chat and can understand that for specific reasons you might want some anonymity. I plan to move from Oregon to Salt Lake area, Utah and am trying to iron out where we’ll get our milk. I hope you are still in business.

  5. You are in great shape then! Our raw milk release form is specific to our company with references to state law, so you should definitely check with the state. Also, each milk run must be tested by an independent lab before being allowed to be released for sale. For instance with our company, the milk comes to our stores from our farm on Monday and is sent out for testing by an independent state lab. The test results come in to us on late Wednesday/early Thursday and that milk is released for sale. The milk that then comes from the farm on Thursday is sent for testing and then released for sale on Monday when the clean results are back. Although we milk daily, we only stock our store shelves twice a week. Each of our 4 stores has to send a separate sample to be tested because although it comes from the same farm/cows, we have to maintain the integrity in transport, so it is tested after it reaches it’s end location.

  6. Hello!

    I have found it very difficult to obtain insurance for raw milk farming. Does anyone know of a listing of raw milk insurers, or have a referral to obtain insurance??

    Thanks

  7. I read that there is raw goat’s milk just north of Cache Valley. Does anyone know exactly where? Also, is there raw cow’s milk (from grass-fed cows) available in Cache Valley or close to it? I live in Logan. Thank you!

  8. I have been in Cache Valley for a year and no, no raw milk sellers around. I have been getting my low-pasteurized, non-homogenized (best I can find here) from [redacted], in Hyrum. Look them up and if you ever find any raw, post on here, please!
    Good luck!

  9. Can someone explain to me why we are not able to purchase raw milk in Cache Valley? It looks like there is a market for it. I don’t want to be “gouged” but I will pay a fair price.

    • Jan,
      When I asked around, my takeaway is that it is based on a few reasons…first, the dairies here sell to the local larger commercial dairies. second, there is not a large enough demand for it, and lastly, small dairies are not willing to take the risk in a highly litigious society.

    • There is raw milk to be found south east of Brigham city. If I were you I would look up arm alliance for Utah. I fear losing current place that I go to for raw milk. Ogden had raw milk, but some people ruined it for everybody else. Some people stole from that farm and well I feel people do not take good care of milk after buying milk. There is a farmer that explains his view on raw milk on YouTube that should be past around. The big problem is the monopoly that pasteurized dairy’s have and fear that is placed in the hearts of people. I take care of the raw milk I buy the best way I know how. Then I bless milk through prayer. I also am concerned about raw milk prices going up. Soon it feels that only wealthier people will be able to afford raw milk. My stomach does really well with raw milk and I have read so much info for raw milk that it should be considered to be the only real super food. That label to would bring prices up. Greed seems to ruin everything. When I get my own land I will get my own milking cows. Making real milk illegal is idiocy at it’s best. Subsidies provided by gov. Has been such a hurdle for fair business.

  10. Also , there’s Mesa Farm in Caineville / Capitol Reef National Park , Utah which makes the best old-style goat cheeses ever ! They’re sold at a deli somewhere in Salt Lake as well as at the Torrey , Ut. Farmer’s Market and at the farm store on their all-organic farm .

  11. Did I read on here that Redmond helped write the raw milk law here in Utah? I went to get some raw milk here today at one of their stores and found that they raised the price a full 50% from last year at this time, which means I can no longer afford it. I had a problem with their helping write the milk law in the first place, since it makes it so hard for smaller producers to be in the market. It now seems as though they have eliminated the competition and have raised their prices accordingly. It’s now $13.45 a gallon when it was $9 a gallon last spring.

    • it’s called process of elimination. they have several stores around the state, and with that kind of money coming in, they can jack their prices. And with them being involved in writing the raw milk law, do only do whats in their best interest and no one else. Making it nearly impossible for small farmers like myself to even get a leg up. We were just shut down by Utah State for selling raw milk and other dairy products from our farm without a proper license. So now I’m on a mission to find my loop hole.
