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.

  1. I am interested in purchasing raw grass fed jersey cow milk 5-8 gal every month for my pets and provide gal plastic containers. We live in Pinson, AL so cutting across the Narrows is no problem. Please email me at risingjesu63@gmail.com.
    If so, how much per gal do you charge? And do you sell cream in quarts. It seems to freeze better. Either way is fine. My pets like both.
    Thank you,
    Deborah Ridgeway

  2. My name is Phyllis. I am interested in getting some raw milk.
    I live in Huntsville. Would like to hear from you.

  3. Hi , I’m from Brewton, AL and looking to purchase A2 jersey cows. Does anyone know of anyone selling their stock in Alabama?

  4. You cannot buy RAW cows/goat milk at ANY store in Alabama. It is Against the Law to sell RAW milk in Alabama, except for the consumption by pets/animals. You can obtain it directly from farmers, for pet consumption, but it is Illegal for stores to sell RAW milk products. It is important to ascertain that the farmer sticks to ORGANIC grasslands & suppleents feed, or it is useless to buy RAW milk.

  5. I am in the Mobile, AL area and am looking to get raw cows milk within a 30 minute driving distance. I am new to buying raw (for my pets of course) and would like to know
    How much raw milk is by the gallon
    How long it will remain good for in the refrigerator
    Where to pick it up within 30 minutes
    Please email me if you are selling raw milk or know of any raw milk suppliers in the area.
    Harleighjosmommy@gmail.com
    I am also interested in buying 100%grassffed beef, and free range eggs.
    Thank you

  6. There is a Farm & Creamery in Hurtsboro that sells raw milk “for pet consumption only” as well as raw whole milk yogurt approved by the USDA. Since we aren’t supposed to list places, I think you could probably find it by googling that info. Good luck!

  7. James, I am not sure how far you want to drive, but we are up in Roanoke and sell raw milk from Jersey cows and dairy goats. We are BarnHouse Farms and you can find us on facebook or call/text me at 407-620-7630.

  8. I would be interested in buying your cow’s milk if still available. We have been driving to Boaz. Cullman would be about the same distance. Our dairy farmer’s cow is not producing at this time. My # is 205-836-0802 or 205-681-1154. Thanks, Cindy

    • I am in the Huntsville area and I have raw milk for sale for pet consumption only. I am licensed by the state to sell pet milk. If interested contact me at 9316257224. Or look me up on Facebook at Dusty J Farms. If I can be of assistance please let me know.

    • THE MILK WAS FREE I JUST DID NOT WANT TO POUR IT OUT. I HAVE TWO FAMILIES TAKING THE MILK RIGHT NOW. IF I HAVE ANOTHER COW CALVE I WILL CONTACT YOU THANKS

  9. For anyone living in the Huntsville area, just drop by one of the farmers markets. The same vendors are at each market. Tuesday is the Green Street Market; Thursday, the Latham Market (Latham United Methodist Church); and Saturday, the Madison City Farmers Market.

    Enjoy!

  10. Hi Kay, I am desperately trying to find where you are talking about in Daphne that sells raw milk. Could you please email me what the name of the place is? I am trying to figure it out before my flight Wednesday. Thank you so very much!

    Angle8796@aol.com

  11. Webmaster note: I am adding this comment from Sally Fallon Morell to the comments I can find that discuss low temperature pasteurization (in other words her reply is not in direct response to your comment–it’s to an email I received, but I thought it would be informative and so wanted to share):

    Sally Fallon Morell note: “Low temperature pasteurization” is just old fashioned pasteurization, heating the milk to 160 degrees. This is enough to destroy all or most of the enzymes. It might be better than the modern UHT pasteurization, which heats to 230 degrees and totally wipes out anything benefits in the milk, but it is still pasteurization. –Sally

  12. Jennifer, In response to your comment, You need to also pray for yourself and family and friends that are stupid enough to drink raw milk that they don’t die a horrible slow painful death from contracting E-Coli from that raw milk you are blindly promoting.
    Do the research on all the cases of E-Coli and other diseases linked to raw milk. Is it really worth the risk? Milk is for baby cows, not for human consumption. E-Coli lives perfectly fine in their body not ours. Sincerely, Jose

    • We have a lot of articles under “Key Documents” that address the relative risk of foodborne illness from drinking raw milk vs. other foods. The risk is very low. CDC data shows that most other foods they track are higher risk.

    • Jose, YOU are the ignorant one! Why don’t you inform yourself and stop being a rude, loudmouth who obviously doesn’t know what you are saying! She did not ask for your nastiness. You should behave yourself. Raw milk is amazing and you should try it before you spew meanness. (Jennifer, your prayer worked for us. Thank you for that scripture!)

  13. I live in Mobile and I’m looking for raw milk. Would you email me the information on the place in Daphne that has raw milk. I would greatly appreciate it.

    bartlett3378@bellsouth..net

    Thank you very much.

  14. Terry what days are you in Birmingham? I live in southeast Blount county. I have a friend who is looking for raw cow milk.

  15. Sarah,
    I live in New Orleans, LA and I’m looking for a raw milk source close enough for a day’s drive. All I have found in Mississippi so far is goat’s milk, but I’m looking for cow’s milk. If you could please call me or email me, maybe we could work something out. My email address is neanram@yahoo.com and my cell number is 504-615-9841.
    Thank you,
    Jeannine

  16. If you have enough milk regularly you may want to set yourself up as a regular source and have a listing on this site. If your supply is irregular you can do what I suppose many folks who have a cow do, and give away your occasional excess to friends and neighbors. The more people who milk cows the more we can ensure there is a supply available for everyone who needs it.

  17. Can you please email me personally? I live in Metairie, LA and I’m looking for raw cow’s milk within a reasonable driving distance. Daphne is only about 2 1/2 hours away. Thank you so much!
    neanram@yahoo.com

  18. Susan, I also live in the Birmingham area and I looking for raw cow’s milk to treat osteoporosis. The closest place I can find is 1 1/2 hours away. If you have heard of someone closer who sells it, maybe we could take turns picking it up.

    Lisha

  19. In states where sale is legal “for animal consumption only,” many people buy the milk to drink themselves. I am not aware of any difference in how it is handled. Do not ask the farmer about drinking it yourself however. In states where “for animal consumption only” is the law, the farmer can get in trouble for talking to you about it for human consumption. Of course, humans are animals…

    • I HAVE A JERSEY MILK COW AND HAVE EXTRA MILK FROM TIME TO TIME. I CANNOT SELL IT DUE TO ITS NOT WORTH FIGHTING THE LEGAL SYSTEM. WISH I COULD I KNOW THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF RAW MILK. I AM IN THE HUNTSVILLE AREA.

      • Is your cow exclusively Grassfed? Can you email me? I have a need for real, raw milk to make yogurt and whey to help my son heal. We just moved to Huntsville.

      • I am looking for raw cow milk to help my pet dog who is following the GAPS diet, if you know what I mean. I tried raw goat milk and made it into kefir twice, but it tastes terrible, even though online people say it should be more smooth and creamy than cow’s milk. I think the goat milk is just more fragile and just a pain to work with, Can you help?

        • I have raised Nigerian Dwarf milk goats and enjoyed their sweet milk with a 9% butterfat content. The ONLY way goat milk taste “bad” is when the bucks are allowed to be in close contact with the does. We kept ours a good distance from each other and never had milk that had a bad taste. Goat milk will taste like a buck in rut smells, which is pretty awful if the goats are not separated.

  20. Whole Foods, Earth Fare and other local “fresh, real food” mentality markets should have raw cheeses and grass fed meat. Stores don’t/can’t sell raw milk. Although, I really wish they would—even if they labeled the containers “Not for human consumption” and then we could do with it as we please after buying it. 🙂

      • Earth Fare no longer carries it. (Montgomery) “Healthwise” on the Atlanta Hwy carry it , as does Fresh Market, and the new “Whole Foods” will be carrying it. They generally deliver on Tuesdays to Montgomery.

        • Any idea when Whole Foods will be open in Montgomery? I went by Earth Fare just the other day and they had shut down, or did they just move?

    • Please encourage this source to use the link at the top of the page, How to Add, Update, or Delete a Listing to be listed on this site. We don’t list anyone or mention them in comments unless they’ve agreed to be listed here because the government often uses this site to find and harass sources. Thanks.

    • TRADER JOES has a raw cheddar cheese that we have used for years. In AL we can only find one in Birmingham:
      205 Summit Blvd ste 100, Birmingham, AL 35243

      We would stock up and freeze it, and use it over a few months time.
