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 live in Guyton, Ga. I have been searching for raw milk in the area for years, and finally found Hunter Farms in Brooklet on your site. However, when I emailed them and found out that they charge $7.00 a gallon, I decided against it. Can you tell me why it would cost over twice as much as pasteurized milk?

    • I welcome any farmers to reply to this comment as well, but there are a number of reasons raw milk costs more. Our government subsidizes corn and soy, making those commodities a cheap source of feed for dairy cows (and meat cows). The raw milk you want is from farmers with cows mostly on grass (a little non-GMO grain at milking can be okay except for certain individuals who are very sensitive). Now of course, grass is “free”, but grass farmers are likely to have old-fashioned breeds of cows that produce less milk than modern Holsteins, but of much higher quality (primarily in the form of more cream). They don’t crowd their cows into cement-floor barns, etc. Modern commercial dairy cows are bred to produce crazy amounts of milk. They often have chronic mastitis, and pus gets into the milk. They’re fed cheap food (the aforementioned subsidized corn and soy, but also often bakery waste and other industrial food waste products). Everything that is done is meant to maximize the quantity of milk with little thought of the quality. Ultra-pasteurization means they can make it last longer, and homogenization means they can skim off some of the cream (to a standardized 3.5% for “whole” milk, or less for lowered fat versions) and use the cream for value-added products like cream, sour cream, ice cream, etc. I believe prices are also set for commercial bulk milk, meaning the dairy farmer is not really getting a fair market price for his milk.

      So the higher price for raw milk is for many factors: fewer cows, less quantity (breeds that naturally produce less milk), more quality (richer milk, more cream, more CLA, naturally occurring vitamins A, D, and K2, Wulzen anti-stiffness factor, and more), more perishable product, no artificial price fixing, etc.

      Grass-fed raw milk is so superior to pasteurized, homogenized, commercial milk that it’s unfair to compare them on price. They are completely different products. One is health-promoting, one is health-robbing. In some parts of the country, raw milk is much more than $7/gallon. Hope this helps.

      • I had not gone back to this site since I posted the original comment in March. Wow! I was surprised to find out that the $7.00 I was complaining about was less than most places! And thank you for educating me on all the costs involved. I already knew about the health benefits, but was glad to see all the other testimonials about their families experiences. I am going to have to re-think this !

        • It is now $10 for a gallon at Hunter’s. I love the raw milk but with the gas, the time to get there and the high price it is almost impossible for me now to buys some. Almost thinking of getting a cow with my neighbor together. It would be worth it.

          • its 90 miles one way to starr sc. but Mr. Peeler of milkyway farms has fantastic raw milk $5.00 a gallon grass fed been drinking it for 12 years now

          • I agree with the previous comment. We buy from Milky Way Dairy in Starr, SC and they have great milk and still $5 gal. Also have buttermilk and half/half available. Keeps well also. Worth the drive.

      • You are very fortunate to get raw milk for 7$ a gallon in texas its upwards of 15$ a gallon..but thats the price you pay for health 🙂 God bless the ppl that can provide the living food of raw goat milk

      • Overall, your explanation is very good. But I take exception to your remark that grass is free. Most of us who raise animals are just as much grass and hay farmers. Having proper grazing and hay for our cows and goats is not free. It takes much of our time in planning and implementation. It requires expensive and difficult to maintain equipment, and expensive seeds and fertilizers. All the more for organic products. We have beef cattle and meat goats. I have a small herd of dairy goats. Selling my goat milk is not even a break even proposition for what goes into producing it. But I love sharing our products and introducing folks to the wholesome foods we enjoy.

      • I went to an amish farm in western Pa near ohio this summer, one of my friends was from there and we were on a road trip headed back to nj. We stopped at my friends amish friend’s farm and filled up on as much raw milk as we wanted for free…..Oh my god was it sooo wonderful. The amish are wonderful people. And so was the milk, we had about 10 gallons of raw milk….for free.

    • $7 per gallon, wow, that’s cheap! I live in Idaho and have spent time in Texas as well. Both of my sources charge $10 per gallon. It’s worth every penny though, I promise!

      Raw milk has done wonders for my family’s health and I won’t even think about letting the kids drink the stuff from the grocery store–it’s just poison. The price is higher because it is a far superior product. I can sympathize with you, because we typically go through at least 3 gallons per week, but I won’t ever go back to store bought. My goal is to move to a home where we can provide our own milk.

      • I understand the cost dilemma. I live near GA, in Aiken, SC area with a price tag of $7.49 on my milk plus tax. I used to have 8 herd shares in Ohio that averaged out to $5.50 a gallon, because you can’t buy it off the shelf at any store. I now realize how good I had it and didn’t even realize. It is all a matter of perspective. Especially because I want to live into my 100’s, like my relatives, who drank raw, unhomogenized milk for years. That was their only option.
        Considering that homogenized milk has been pushed through holes so small that it passes straight through the intestinal wall into the blood stream, it so so we don’t have to shake it. That causes a lot of allergies and lactose intolerant/sensitive people to have milk issues. All of this, so that we don’t have to shake our milk! My son can now drink milk because we made the switch. How many years of frustration we had, and unfortunately we were too nervous to start sooner.
        Besides, I love pouring this milk on cereal, making ice cream from the cream, homemade butter…. We are sold on our local grassfed dairy cow. Try it, you just might like it.

      • I have been buying Jersey cow whole milk and it too is $7.00 a gallon. I buy it at whole foods and it too cost $7.00 a gallon. It is great quality and I add water (1/3 milk to 2/3 water) and it taste delicious. I do this because I am watching my weight and need to drink milk with all my meals because I had cancer of my tongue and can not swallow with out milk. I am in Georgia looking for Jersey
        cow raw milk. My wife heard it is the best source of calcium for women.

        • Jersey cow raw milk is available at Southern Oaks Jerseys
          1458 Highway 20
          Abbeville, SC (just outside of GA)
          Farmer: Mark Wiley

          I don’t know where you’re located in GA, but I am in the northeast area. We get raw milk from Southern Oaks every 2 weeks. Just 2 hours drive from us.

          Only $5.00 a gallon. Definitely worth the drive.
          Milk keeps well in the frig for the full 2 weeks. Lots of thick, yummy cream on top!

          • Forgot to say, SC has same law as GA. Raw milk is for pet consumption only, as per SC law. But this farmer’s milk is just as reasonably priced as PA’s raw milk where it’s legal for human consumption!

    • They charge double the price in states that are not legal to sell to humans for drinking. That’s why they charge more,, because they know it’s harder to get. I am from Pennsylvania in which it is legal to sell and they charge 4.50 a gallon !! I am not paying 8.00 for the milk for pets.

      • Raw milk for $8.00 is a bargain anywhere, particularly in the United States. Even if it is required to be labeled as “pet food” and you are very foolish to complain about that price. Usually all store milk has totally decomponentized with liquid and solid being separated, processed and then reconstituted to a 3.5 % fat. It is also federally funded in its production. Think unclean animals fed garbage food. I legally should be classified as less than “pet food.” Raw milk costs much more to produce.

    • I am no dairy-person BUT $7 for grass-fed unpasteurized pet milk is very fair. Value your health, and the health of your children, and join the thriving Georgians who benefit from this profound nutrition.

    • I think it’s overpriced ($7/gallon). I just moved here from Wisconsin (July, 2015) and I paid $5/gallon in WI for raw milk. I did provide my own glass jars and poured/pumped my own milk from the tank. Not sure why it costs $2 more a gallon in GA in which they have a much longer growing season and are able to field feed their cows longer then in Wisconsin! With all that said, I will pay the increased priced of milk for my family b/c pasteurized milk is “dead” milk and offers little to no benefit for your growing kids.

      • Sara, I don’t know where you live, however you are mistaken to complain about the price of raw milk in GA. It costs more to produce here than in the are you lived previously. Jose

    • Raw milk tastes so much better and based on studies is much better for you. It is not as mass produced as milk in supermarkets, hence the high price. I think $7 a gallon is a bargain.

    • That is what I paid also and worth it to know it is raw and not processed and nutrition destroyed. I just found out there is a farm on my road. I thought the only one around here was on the other side of town. YEAH.

  2. 6.00 per HALF gallon in Illinois! I am so glad to have relocated to GA! Now, can someone help with which farm may be closest to Lilburn? It will take all day to go to each farms website!

  3. In Phoenix, AZ, our milk is $10.00 gal. My home town is bordering Amish country in SE PA where the milk is $3.75 a gal. I understand the initial shock of the increased cost. However, there is nothing more important to me than maintaining optimal health. Milk..REAL, WHOLESOME MILK… absolutely does a body good. Take it from someone who was told by the good ole medical doctors that I had 3-6 mth survival rate less than 4 years ago.

    $10 a gallon is a steal for the quality of life it has provided. My immediate family alone (6 adults and 3 children) purchases an avg of 23 gallons every 2 weeks. We are HEALTHY AND LOVING IT!

    Thank you to all the holistic, GMO free farmers and their families who sacrifice daily to provide their communities with quality products that promote healthful living. You are truly a BLESSING!

  4. I, too, am looking for raw milk in south GA. I live in Valdosta but will be relocating to Alma in 6 months. Does ABAC in Tifton sell the raw milk from the cows they keep on campus?

  5. are there any raw milk farmers in west georgia, as in within 20 miles of carrollton? i see the newnan listing but i’m only looking for cow milk, not goat.

  6. I am traveling to Hiawassee GA (north GA/NC border) on Lake Chatuge and need to locate some real food (raw milk, pastured eggs/chickens and grass fed beef.) I’m seeing all these names but I don’t know my way around GA. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    • Cleveland: Brown Eyed Girl Creamery, 374 Asa Dorsey Rd, Cleveland GA (foothills of NE GA), phone: 706-865-3113 (days) and 706-865-3680 (nights), email: Unpasteurized Jersey cow’s milk sold under license by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and labeled as pet food as required by Georgia law. Milk is bottled in glass containers and not bottled until sold to ensure freshness. Registered Jersey herd is on pasture and supplemented with grain at milking. They plan to sell artisan cheese soon.

  7. Concerning Hunter Cattle Co. in Brooklet, GA… They don’t raise dairy cows, only grassfed beef cattle. But in order to meet demands of customers who come to buy grassfed beef and also want to buy raw milk, Hunter Cattle buys raw milk from another local farmer and then sells to their customers. So if the price of the raw milk is higher than some people think it ought to be, part of the reason may be that Hunter Cattle has to mark it up a little in order to make some profit.

  8. We also live in Valdosta and know quite a few people who have been searching for raw milk in this area. Anyone who was willing to try would certainly make a bit of money out here! We’ve been drinking the store milk and it tastes musty and gross in comparison. Miss my real milk!

  9. I am moving to south GA, about an hour below Columbus and I am having trouble finding raw milk to buy that’s closer than an hour’s drive 🙁 I even checked and mostly everything is either north GA or down by Savannah. How can I find local raw milk dairy farmers? Thank you!

  10. Does anyone know of the closest farm that I can buy grassed Non GMO grain fed raw cow milk or grassfed non GMO beef/chickens near Murphy Nc? I’m open to Ga, or Tn. It seems everything is over an hour away and I’m hoping to find a closer farm if possible. Thanks.

    • Rebecca, We live west of Murphy and travel to Westminster, SC to buy our milk. We’d love to find someone to take turns going to the dairy to pick up the milk. Please let me know if you’d be interested.

  11. Hi all,

    We run a medium-sized raw goat milk herd-share operation in Alaska, and are flying in to Atlanta on Oct. 9 and driving from there to Asheville NC to attend the American Dairy Goat convention. We will be looking for a source of raw goat milk to maintain our “habit”, LOL. Since we are unfamiliar with the area, can anyone suggest a goat milk source anywhere along that route? Will probably be taking the US 23/US441 based on scenic-drive suggestions.

  12. I live in conyers and I need fresh goat milk for making homemade a soap. Anybody close to conyers,covington or McDonough. Thanks

    • Carlton Farms up in Rockmart delivers every Friday in Stone Mountain which is close to you. Check out their website. I can attest for their milk…never going back to store bought.

    • You can look up Carlton Farms on their website and put in an order. You can pick it up when they deliver it once a week on Rock Springs Rd. at the Church.

  13. I relocated to Young Harris, Ga. Could someone recommend a local farm close by for raw milk, chickens, eggs, beef? Thanks so much! Sandra

  14. Does anyone know of a raw milk farmer near Augusta, Ga or Edgefield, SC? I see the listings in Aiken. Just wondering if there is anyone closer to me or my Dad where I can purchase. My mid-west family introduced me to raw milk & I don’t want to go back to conv!

  15. Hi,

    I live near Columbus (Box Springs, about 30 mins east) and am looking for a nearby supplier of raw goat milk. I have a chronic condition and am hoping to use the milk as part of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Thanks for your help!

    • Jen, I’m also from columbus, the two closest I can find are either butler, or warm springs. I think I’m going to go to warmsprings this week. Please email me. Maybe we can split the trips. We will go one week, pick up your items, you go the next and pick up ours? Email me if you like. also let me know if you’ve found somewhere closer. Thanks.

    • Hi Jen,
      I also live in Box Springs & would love to find a local source for “real” milk & eggs. Did you have any luck??? Please email me at

  16. I live in south east ga about 70 from savannah and 78 miles north of Jacksonville florida. I want to make my own cheese with good raw milk. Anyone near me who sells raw milk

  17. We are considering relocating to either the Brunswick/Golden Isles area or to the islands in the Savannah area. Is there anyone who sells raw milk in these two areas?

    • Check our carlton farms, they deliver to Decatur weekly. You have to go to a pickup point at a specific time, but their milk is soooo good and well worth the effort.

  18. We currently get our milk at the Lilburn pick up site near Stone Mountain from Carlton Farms. However, we are moving to Cleveland, GA and although they deliver to the Mall of Georgia area and also another area in the vicinity (I think Cumming), it is still a long drive from Cleveland. I know it is well worth it, but if I can find a closer pick up with another farmer (of equal quality of course), it would be very helpful. If anyone knows of another farmer closer to Cleveland, we would appreciate the info. Otherwise, we plan on driving where we have to for the sake of drinking the healthiest milk available! Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.

  19. I’ve read about the many, many benefits of raw goat and cow milk and I am interested in finding some in my area. We live in the Ft. Benning/Columbus, GA area. Would you know of anyone?

    Thank you,

    • Jessica, I’m also from columbus, the two closest I can find are either butler, or warm springs. I think I’m going to go to warmsprings this week. Please email me. Maybe we can split the trips. We will go one week, pick up your items, you go the next and pick up ours? Email me if you like. also let me know if you’ve found somewhere closer. Thanks.

  20. I am considering a move to Valdosta, Ga and would like to know of a jersey cow milk source in that area.

    Thank you,

    Corbin Fox

    • So would I. I have been looking for years and have yet to find a “cow” source with-in a two hour drive. Plenty of raw goat milk around, but not cows milk.

  21. I will be moving to Ft. Gordon in a few months. Is there a raw milk source near or within 60 miles of Augusta?

  22. I live in Savannah,Ga I am new to the raw milk and never had tried it I am looking for the nearest farm that sells it as pet food. I am tired of government you cant do anything unless some branch okays it if anyone know of any farms I will be grateful

  23. Does anyone know where I can get A2 milk in West Georgia? I’m lactose intolerant and have tried raw cow milk but it still tore me up. I want to try the raw milk from an A2 cow.

  24. If you’re close to SC it is legal to sell raw milk. I live in Augusta, GA, but found a Weston Price chapter in Aiken, SC which is only 30 min. from here.

  25. I am looking to buy GOAT milk somewhere near Cumming, GA. If anyone knows of any farmer or any person that is willing to sell it, please please please email me at

    I looked at Carlton Farms, but they seem to only sell cow milk..
    Thank you

  26. By all means, do let’s drink raw milk!!!

    Can drinking raw milk hurt me or my family?
    Yes. Raw milk can cause serious infections. Raw milk and raw milk products (such as cheeses and yogurts made with raw milk) can be contaminated with bacteria that can cause serious illness, hospitalization, or death. These harmful bacteria include Brucella, Campylobacter, Listeria, Mycobacterium bovis, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, Shigella, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Yersinia enterocolitica. From 1998 through 2011, 148 outbreaks due to consumption of raw milk or raw milk products were reported to CDC. These resulted in 2,384 illnesses, 284 hospitalizations, and 2 deaths. Most of these illnesses were caused by Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, Salmonella, or Listeria. It is important to note that a substantial proportion of the raw milk-associated disease burden falls on children; among the 104 outbreaks from 1998-2011 with information on the patients’ ages available, 82% involved at least one person younger than 20 years old.
    Because not all cases of foodborne illness are recognized and reported, the actual number of illnesses associated with raw milk likely is greater.

    • It is possible for any food to be contaminated with pathogenic bacteria at levels that can cause illness. Foodborne illness is indeed likely higher than reported, for every type of food. However, you quote CDC reports of foodborne illnesses reported for raw milk without providing the context of the number of foodborne illnesses for other foods, which are higher in nearly every category they have, the highest being produce. When all vectors for foodborne illnesses are considered, properly produced grassfed raw milk is less risky than most foods.

  27. Where in Georgia are you located? Raw milk is only legal for animal use in Georgia. If you are close to South Carolina, it is legal there. I am about 25 min. from the border and drive over every few weeks to get it from the Aiken area.

  28. Howdy. I, too, would like to taste raw cow milk. I’m located in Ashburn, between Tifton and Cordele. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  29. Need raw milk in Milton/ Cherokee area asap Mayfield isn’t cutting it anymore! Just visited my brother in Lima NY they buy raw milk from a farm down the street. There are plenty of fields to be occupied in Cherokee for raw milk farms!

      • I poster an add on craigslist looking for goat milk and I had a farmer from Cartersville and Conyers respond that they sell milk. If you are interested and if this is close to you, I can give you their contact information. Just email me at

      • For the Canton/Cherokee and Milton areas check out two little farm stores one is Farm Fresh Beef in Ball Ground and the other is Wilbur & Rudy’s in Milton. Also, you may find a drop off location for Carlton Farms nearby.

  30. I have read many of these posts. I guess we get the lowest price in the US. I pay $1 per half gallon mason jar of fresh raw milk. The dairy is owned and operated by a couple who are going to retire soon. They work 7 days a week and are just tired. I will buy it until they quit. Then I will either buy my own cow or pay $8 per gallon in Ellijay. I live in Suches, Ga and the dairy is in Blairsville.

    • Same here.

      I plan to email Sam Jones of Butler GA. Phone # and email address are in the listing above about raw milk.

      Not sure about the eggs. I used to a have co-worker with a son who had chickens humanely. They over produced by a great deal. Free eggs for everyone! More than I needed! I miss that so much and didn’t appreciate it enough at the time.

  31. Ron, my husband and I live in Blairsville and are looking to try raw milk. You mentioned a place in Ellijay (wondering where it’s at), but I’m curious if there are any other local farms. If your friends are selling- I would like to meet up with them, but I’m not opposed to going to Murphy NC., Young Harris GA., Hiwassiiee, Blue Ridge, ect. We have two chickens which mostly supply our eggs, but are looking for other ‘clean’ sources. We have been dipping our toes in the water trying to learn and catch up on all the farming, growing, and preserving foods. Thank you.

    • Farm Fresh Beef recently opened a processing plant in Blairsville. They may have raw milk for sale there. They sell it at their other location in Ball Ground.

    • Blairsville: Mountain View Farm, Ronnie Dyer, phone: 706-897-3396.
      Their info is above the comment section here.
      Very good & about half way between Blairsville & Morganton.

  32. I don’t think you can get raw milk in Murphy NC , unless I’m missing something.
    I am in Murphy myself looking for Raw Milk. ,

  33. What’s the closest place to find a good source of raw milk in SE Georgia? Am in Vidalia and with the number of farms around here you’d think there would be a good source, but I’ll be danged if I can find one.

    Thanks in advance. My email address if someone would like to contact me directly is

  34. I want to try raw milk for me and the family. But, I’m completely clueless about it. whats the difference between raw milk and raw milk for pets? or is it the same thing? why do farmers adverse raw milk for pets? and when I get raw milk is it safe for me to drink straight from the bottle or do I need to boil it first. Thanks in advance..

    • The only legal way to sell raw milk in Georgia is if it has a label on it that says “Pet Milk: Not For Human Consumption” If you meet the farmer and are comfortable with their sanitation practices then you would be fine drinking raw milk for pets. All of the farms listed on this website follow human grade sanitary practices. No need to boil.

  35. Hi there, Anyone know of a good source for raw milk in Athens, GA? I asked around and no one carries it in town anymore (that I could find). I know there is a farm in Royston but they didn’t return my call (small farms often don’t have this kind of service, I understand!). But I’m considering moving there from PA (where I get amazing raw milk easily) and really want to find a good source. Cows milk (I saw alot for goat but I prefer cow). Thank you!

  36. Angelica,

    I know so much about raw milk that it would take days for me to type it. So the best thing I can do for you is to point you to: This link will share every way raw milk is beneficial. Here is a book that gives the history of raw milk: The Untold Story of Milk by Ron Schmid, New Trends Publishing

    I have been enjoying raw milk for many years since my grandfather introduced me to in back in 1964, I only found out about how to get raw milk in 1998/99 and I have been following this website since then.


    Dr. Corbin C Fox III

  37. Angelica,

    One of the sources I used when first learning about raw milk is the Healthy Home Economist website.

    There is no difference between the raw milk for pets and raw milk for humans. I had a friend in Oregon who would go to the pet store where he would purchase milk for the family. Raw milk was only legal for pets in OR at the time, so he went that route.

    You drink it straight from the bottle. You can heat it if you want to drink warm milk, but don’t heat it past 110 degrees or you’ve killed all the benefits and you’ll now have pasteurized milk.

  38. I am in Bluffton GA halfway between Albany GA and Dothan AL. Are there any raw milk suppliers nearby? Prefer grass fed and no pesticides. Thank you!

  39. which of these are closest to Atlanta? I need a gallon a week of raw milk and some heavy cream now and then.

    It’d be great if there was a map of the state of GA with numbered pins for every place on this list. I have no idea where all these tiny towns are and don’t have time to look them all up.

  40. My wife is concerned about the safety of raw milk. She is used to boiling milk bak home in Lebanon for safety. I drink raw milk cold to get all the benefits. My question , what is the best temperature to heat milk. Do we need to heat or boil milk before consuming

  41. Looking for raw cow and goat milk near Avera GA. I am 45 minutes from Augusta.

  43. For anyone looking for raw milk in the Columbus, GA area, Sam Jones delivers to the Farmers Market in downtown Columbus every Saturday 9-12 noon. The table sign says “Cedar Rock Dairy.” His email and phone number are listed under the city of Andersonville. He was formerly located in Butler, GA. I bought 1/2 gallon today for $5.00 in a plastic container. Real nice people.

    • Yes very nice and their milk is delicious. Grassfed, no grain only alfalfa pellets, no hormones, A2 jersey herd. If you buy in glass mason jars it is $4 half gallon. Sam delivers milk to Albany, Baindridge, Adele and Bluffton. There are other small milk drops I don’t know about.

  44. Not a single supplier in south Georgia where we live now. That is disappointing to realize how un- health- wise people seem to be down here. I don’t drink much milk ever, but my husband does each day, and I never realized that the milk he drinks from the grocery store is worthless as far as helping his health. Can’t drive that far for raw milk. Maybe he should change to almond milk or something.

    • It’s entirely possible that there is actually a supplier in your area but for various reasons they may not list their farm name on this page. What is your city or nearest city?

  45. I see where most farms give the dairy cows grains at milking time. Is this normal? Is it possible to get raw milk from cows that are 100% grass-fed?

    • It is possible to get 100% grassfed milk, and some people who are extremely sensitive to grain have to seek out 100% grassfed milk. Such milk will likely be more expensive than grain supplemented milk. Lactating cows use a lot of energy and if they are on only grass they get very thin and don’t produce as much. So most farmers supplement with some grain at milking. Ideally they would soak/sprout this grain before giving it to their cows; some farmers do that. And if given only at milking it forms something like 2% of their diet, but is enough to help the cows keep weight on and keep up the milk production.
