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.

96 thoughts on “Arizona

  1. Their milk breaks by itself … half water half milk !!!! Says it right there on the jug shake it well before drinking? Why’s that? Because I believe it is mixed with water at best(hopefully just water). I know well what real raw whole milk looks like. FOND DUC LOC, SAVE THE DAIRY, PLUM PRAIRIE CREAMERY and GREEN PASTURES are all the same. I tried all of these farms and all are the same. Don’t believe me? Goto sprouts pick up either kefir or raw milk by Fond Duc Loc and see how the milk or kefir inside the bottle is separated by water or just broken? Word to the aforementioned farmers: Let’s play Swear To God? Swear to God that you don’t add anything into the milk? Swear To God that you don’t add water into the milk? God Is Good.

    • Raw milk separates first into cream and milk, and then into curds and whey. The whey looks watery. Is it possible you are more familiar with raw goat’s milk, which doesn’t separate into a thick cream layer as much as raw cow’s milk does (because the fat molecules in goat’s milk are smaller and remain more dispersed in the milk; cow’s milk fat molecules are larger and separate more, with the cream rising over time). If you are seeing non-homogenized raw milk and kefir in the store it will appear to have a thicker layer at the top. And yes, it will probably say on the jug to shake it, to disperse the cream throughout the milk. Before homogenization became common, one always did that. Except when you wanted to pour off the cream to use for your coffee or other creamy uses.

  2. I desperately need raw, unpasteurized goat milk for a serious health issue. I live in Mesa, AZ.
    Can someone help me find a source?

  3. I’m in East Mesa. I use Green Pastures in Casa Grande (pastured, raw dairy with A2 Brown Swiss). They drop off Wednesdays at my home, they are also at the farmers market in Scottsdale and Peoria every week.

  4. I don’t know where you are but I was going there and stopped too. I use Green Pastures now in Casa Grande, they are state certified, pastured Brown Swiss.

    I’m in East Mesa and I am a host for my area.. GP comes here every Wednesday to drop off milk for my area. You aren’t that far from me really.

  5. I’m in East Mesa and every Wednesday Green Pastures Raw Dairy (pastured, Brown Swiss, Casa Grande) drops off at my home for my surrounding area. Let me know if you are interested. I know you are in Chandler but I do believe they have someone in Chandler they drop off with for that area.

  6. I know this is old so I’m hoping maybe things have changed. What is closest to Gilbert area for raw milk with pastured cows? I know there are a couple places that sell raw milk but cows aren’t pastured. I know Sprouts sells raw milk but from what I understand those cows are not pastured.

    • Unfortunately, you will probably NOT find grass fed cows in the desert…just won’t happen. The dairy in Casa Grande – Fond du Lac Farms has EXCELLENT milk – A2 milk – and they feed only organic barley and I believe organic hay but go to their website and check them out!! We’ve been getting their milk for the last year or more…EXCELLENT – AND they do great job of keeping their dairy clean for clean animals therefor clean source!

    • For the record, Green Pastures has full transparency too.. you can actually give them a call and they allow you to come out to the farm (state certified) – they are listed on this page. And yes, they are pastured.

      • Green Pastures delivers to my home (Eastmark area).. they also sell their milk at Steadfast Farm at Eastmark, though their store is small so not too many gallons. If you want Green Pastures, you are welcome to let me know, I can add your milk #’s to mine and you can swing by and get it from me. I’m home during the week with kids.

        Green Pastures grazes their A2/A2 Brown Swiss on Pasture, offering half and full gallon. They also offer full transparency (you can visit the farm).

  7. I realize I’m almost 4 years late on this reply, but this post irked me and I felt compelled.
    I, too, want to thank you (realmilk.com) for the work you do on this site and the information it offers. It’s really not difficult to perform a web search for cities, maps, or simply more information on a farm or company who chooses to be listed here.
    Perhaps pk has something to offer in the way of helping this site be better organized, since it is not up to his or her aesthetic par.
    Beyond that, the site provides exactly what it needs to in the way of offering information to guide a searcher in the right direction. Thank you for offering your time and for paying for this site to even exist…there are many of us who are grateful for what you are able to do.

  8. In Laveen, she makes raw Ricotta, feta, and chevre cheese, all out of goat milk. In March 2017 they will have it available.

    • Does anyone know if there is a farm in AZ, preferably near Phoenix, that sells donkey or horse milk? My children cannot tolerate cow or goat milk. Any help would be appreciated.

  9. If you are interested in coordinating a pickup in the west phoneix area, I can supply you weekly. maybe everyone on this thread can rotate doing the drive ?

    • If you are interested in coordinating a pickup in the west phoneix area, I can supply you weekly. maybe everyone on this thread can rotate doing the drive ?

  10. I just moved to the Golden Valley area and cannot find raw milk (for my kefir grains) anywhere from Havasu, to Bullhead City, to Kingman. Can you please help?

  11. If you’ve found some people to put their orders together, please let me know. My husband & I would be interested in about a gallon and a half or two per week. Thanks.

  12. Looking for raw milk, goat or cow, and haven’t been able to come up with a place in the Yuma area until February. If you have a lead, or know how to order online or some unique way, please drop me a note. Your help would be greatly appreciated. 8/25/15.

    • I still haven’t heard of a place to get fresh cows milk here in Yuma. There are a few folks to get goats milk from. I’d really love to find a source for access to fresh to make yogurt and butter for my family.

  13. Hi! I’m looking for grass fed beef, chicken and dairy as well as organic produce. I’m in the Casa Grande area but can’t seem to find anything reasonably priced or with a 2 hr drive. I’ve got 4 kids with a range of issues including Autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing disorder, severe allergies, etc. I’m trying to get us on a healthier, holistic path in nutrition and healing. Can anyone give me some info? I’ll totally go to farmer’s markets in Tucson or the Valley but I don’t know where or who. Thanks in advance!

  15. There’s a guy who has lots of goats and lives south of Concho, just off 61 north-west side of it. Ask around there. His wife even makes ice-cream for local fares. You have to drive on the dirt road up a fairly steep hill.

  16. I am looking to purchase raw goat milk on a regular basis and I live in Camp Verde, not far from Cottonwood. Can you please let me know where I can buy this locally (that doesn’t taste goaty) Thank you so much.

  17. Carl, were you able to get set up to sell in Tucson yet? I am looking for raw milk and would like to get started as soon as possible.

  18. Skip, Where are you located in Tucson? I would like to start buying real milk or maybe join a cowshare. Would like more info and get started on real milk again.

  19. I’m also interested in purchasing Raw Milk in Yuma. Any body find sources locally?

    For the Sellers/Producers: Consider “Rail” and Co-Op’ing Space with other Raw Milk Producers and let a local sell the product (???maybe???)
