Donkey Milk Coming to the US?

A reader submitted the following:

“Just so you know, donkey’s milk is coming to the US! Raw donkey milk is going great guns in France and Belgium. Marie Tack in Belgium sells donkey milk that meets European bacteriological standards. I visited two farms in France and drank milk directly from many burros (delicious!). I will go to Belgium next year to visit Marie myself who milks 50 head of mammoth jennets each day. Donkey milk is the closest milk to human breast milk and is ideal for feeding infants. It is in a state of rediscovery in France and Belgium and will be available here in the future. Donkeys don’t carry bovine diseases. Visit www.asineriedupaysdescollines.be to see her operation.”

It remains to be seen whether this will catch on in the United States and if the milk will be offered unpasteurized. Readers who have additional information about donkey milk in the US, please email the Weston A. Price Foundation at info@westonaprice.org.

  7. hi esther,
    i live in chile now but grew up in the chicago area with a summer cottage in wauconda. i am investigating the possibility of moving into that house for a time and putting my son in the waldorf, so i would be interested in getting in touch with you. i would definitely be looking for real food resources and people with related outlooks with whom to share. for example, here in chile i participate in a cowshare and may soon start boarding a donkey in exchange for use of its milk. you can contact me at marciewhite at gmail if you are interested.
    cheers,
    marcie

  8. I have an autistic child. The only way I was able to get it was to purchase my own donkeys and milk them. But being a mom I will do what it takes for my son’s health!

  9. Never heard of this! What happens to baby donkeys? I know for a fact that horse type animals produce too much milk for one foal. I know what happens to dairy calves. Kinda grim for the baby bulls in particular usually.

    • With donkeys you can’t just “dispose of” the babies like you can with cows. They have to have the baby in their sight or they don’t produce any milk, and you can only milk the “extra”, they have to keep nursing their baby the rest of the time. We researched and bought a breed of donkey that is in demand for pack / trail riding, as well as a flock protector, and I read they are on the “recovering” list of endangered species. With good breeding and responsible owners, hopefully that will change! We have two precious bred donkeys that are due any day now. We got them to milk for our daughter’s autoimmune disease (PANDAS), but I am hoping we’ll have extra. If you’d like to be put on our waiting list, please email or reply here and let me know.
