The Weston A Price chapter leader in Belgium shared this with us: On the website https://www.rechtvanbijdeboer.be you will find various addresses of bio farmers in your area with the search term. Often the dairy cattle are also fed with grains at a bio farmer. Go and investigate yourself and find out what the farmer uses as additional feed.
Other possibilities in Belgium mentioned by our readers:
A visitor from Eastern Europe writes: In the East European countries, Romania, Hungary, the former states of Yugoslavia, you can find real (raw) milk all over the place there. It’s true, you can’t find the raw milk in stores, but you can ask people about farms (in-city farms) that sell raw milk. My family buys only raw milk from some neighbors who feed their small cattle on the pastures near the city skirts. The milk is delivered almost instantly after it is milked (an hour or so). It is not even skimmed.
A Weston A. Price chapter leader in France notes that “in France, raw milk is easy to come by, by stopping at any milk farm at milking hour, in organic supermarkets or even in ordinary supermarkets. Sometimes, you have to ask.” Below are some additional possibilities mentioned by our readers.
Another chapter leader located in the Var region in southeastern France offers some additional suggestions:
Raw cow milk for direct human consumption was banned in 1996, this was superseded by the EU 2006 Hygiene directive which allowed for the sale of raw milk direct to consumers from the farm or through local retail outlets. Currently, owing to this EU directive, the sale of raw milk in Ireland is legal, but the Irish Government is proposing to ban its sale; their time-frame was set to be before the end of 2011, however the legislation has not advanced further owing to the work of the Campaign for Raw Milk Ireland who still hope to be able to persuade the government to introduce regulations as opposed to an outright ban. The Campaign for Raw Milk in Ireland was formed in May 2011. More details on the campaign and the current situation can be found on www.rawmilkireland.com
Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter Leader for North Wales, Ben Pratt, maintains a list of raw milk suppliers for the UK and Ireland:
A reader tells us there are milk dispensers called mlekomat in Poland. A list of cities and map can be found here: http://www.mlekomat.info/map,pl.html. She says that farmers also provide people with raw milk at farms.
A reader from Husak, Slovakia reports: “I just wanted to let you know that raw milk is widely available in Slovakia through automated dispensers. At some dispensers bottles are also sold, but most people bring used plastic bottles (like mineral water comes in) and fill their own. Apparently there was a subsidy from the government to dairy farms that allowed them to buy these dispensing machines (all of which are from various Italian companies). So, you’ll be getting local raw milk from them, though certainly not organic, unfortunately. Of course, if one is in the countryside, it is possible to find people, like me, with cows who’ll give you raw milk. The milk dispensers are called “mliekomats”. “Surové mlieko” would be the term for “raw milk”, but it may also be called “čerstvé mlieko” — fresh milk, which in the context of mliekomats always means raw milk, but in supermarkets non-UHT milk I have seen called “fresh milk”. These mliekomats also exist the Czech Republic.
